Sadie Schrock swore she would never marry. All of her other Amish friends could court and marry—she was content to manage the family business and eventually take it over when her parents are ready to retire. But all of that changes when a reckless driver kills both of her parents and seriously injures her younger sister. With mounting hospital bills adding to the pile of debt her parents left behind, Sadie is left with no choice: she must marry. And not just any man—the man who saw her at her weakest and walked away.
Aden knows what his brother did to Sadie years ago was inexcusable. And every day since that incident, Aden has lived with the guilt for not intervening sooner. When he is faced with the chance to protect Sadie once again, he can’t let her down—even if it means living with the scorn of the woman he loves for the rest of his life.
Working alongside Aden at the store, Sadie realizes he isn’t the same boy who once betrayed her. Just when Sadie starts to let her guard down and perhaps develop feelings for her new husband, dangerous secrets are revealed. Now everything Sadie has worked so hard to protect is threatened, and she must find a way to save her family—and herself.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I LOVED this book! I read it in two days and that is only because I felt I should at least sleep an hour or two the night I started it. I could not put this book down. From page one I was hooked I just kept turning and turning the pages. I couldn't believe how many different things were involved in this book. Love, suspense, a little bit of mystery, forgiveness and reconciliation! That is just naming the highlights. Kathleen is an amazing author. I have always loved Amish fiction and now I know I will always choose anything she writes when I'm looking for a book.
I so much enjoyed how mysterious some parts of the story were! Sometimes when you get a romance it's sloppy and sappy and sticky sweet. This book was anything but that! The romance aspect of it was actually an underlying part in my opinion.
The characters are well developed and you most certainly love who you should love and totally dislike whom you should dislike. I can't say too many things about the book and its characters without spoiling the book, but honestly I can't say enough good things! I have already told every person I know it seems like about how awesome this book is.
So there you go, suspense, a little mystery and romance all in one book. You won't be disappointed!
Grab your copy today, but make sure you have a day or two to do nothing but read because you won't want to stop!
I received this book through the Fiction Guild in exchange for my review.
