"It is easy to become invested in the characters, as even the secondary characters are well-developed and vital to the storyline... the taut writing creates a perfect blend of mystery and romance."--RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars)
From the Back Cover
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray delivers the next novel in her Amish of Hart County series--a suspenseful tale of an Amish man who will risk all to protect the woman he loves
Mark Fisher has returned home to Hart County determined to put the past behind him. Two years ago, after being wrongly accused of assault, he left the Amish community, though he never forgot his home. When the one person who helped him through rough times asks for help, Mark returns. But it is pretty Waneta Cain who makes him want to stay . . .
Neeta is one of the few people in Hart County who doesn't believe Mark is guilty of hurting anyone. However, his worldliness and tough exterior make her uneasy. As she begins to see the real man behind all the gossip and prejudice, she wonders if he is the man for her.
Just when Mark starts to believe a new life is possible, a close friend of Neeta's is attacked. Once again, everyone in the community seems to believe Mark is guilty. But what hurts him most is Neeta's sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt--a woman who is close to both Neeta and Mark--Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find the perpetrator before Neeta becomes his next victim?
