From award-winning New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling author Lenora Worth, the second in the Shadow Lake inspirational romance series featuring independent Amish sisters who run a historic inn located near Lake Erie, Pennsylvania. It’s a satisfying life of simplicity and peace, but when Eliza King must hire a childhood nemesis to help care for the horses, will she be able to find room in her heart to forgive? And can forgiveness be the most powerful force on the road to everlasting love?
Eliza King already has a broken heart, and thanks to a rickety ladder, she now has a broken leg too. She isn’t dealing with either very well. Ever since a brief romance ended when the boy who’d been courting her tried a little too hard to take things further, Eliza has sought refuge in reading books and tending to her beloved horses. Being incapacitated makes the latter impossible. But her Englisch doctor knows an Amish man looking for just such work . . .
Eliza is shocked to discover that the man is Levi Lapp, the very boy who humiliated her, now all grown up. Levi is embarrassed over his clumsy behavior as a teen. He wants to earn Eliza’s forgiveness, even if he can’t win back her heart. . . . And once Eliza reluctantly agrees to hire him, she finds herself enjoying the little gifts and encouraging notes Levi leaves for her. Encouraged by her older sister, she begins to fashion a quilt out of each item. Soon Eliza can see Levi’s caring spirit plainly before her—and the possibility that he might just be the best thing for her horses—and for her.
ARC Book Review:
My Mom loved Amish books and always bought a selection for her for Christmas – she would have loved this series.
This is a Clean Amish Romance, and this is the second book in the Shadow Lake series. I have read and reviewed the first book in this series, but I do think you could have read this book as a standalone. I really loved the characters in this book, and the storyline pulled me right into it. i really enjoyed this book. I also felt the message in this book was really good.
