Marta Perry. Berkley, $7.99 mass market (304p) ISBN 978-1-9848-0319-1
Perry (Amish Outsiders) welcomes readers to the Amish community of Promise Glen, Pa., for this endearing story of a woman finding renewed faith after a complicated romantic entanglement. Twenty-eight-year-old Sarah Yoder is happy to be home after a decade of traveling alongside her father and caring for her younger siblings while he worked. Her Grossmammi (grandmother) finds her a job keeping the books for furniture-maker Noah Raber, neglecting to inform Sarah that Noah has young twin sons and that his wife separated from him soon after they were born. The last thing that Sarah wants to do is raise more children who aren’t hers, but she soon finds herself caring for the young boys. Sarah has never been in love, but she feels herself starting to develop feelings for Noah—despite the fact that he is married and they can never be together. Noah also struggles with his attraction for Sarah, who has quickly become an important part of both his and his sons’ lives. After they kiss, they both agree they must resist temptation. Matters are complicated even more when Sarah discovers Noah’s wife is living is community nearby. It doesn’t seem possible that Sarah can find the happiness she is searching for, but her Grossmammi encourages her to believe in God’s plan for her life. This Christmas romance, tinged with sadness and pain, is a moving tale of trusting God and finding love in unexpected places. (Oct.)
