I was totally absorbed in this story about Eli and Katie Ann. It was hard to tell throughout the story whether or not Eli and Katie Ann would be able to stick with the boundaries they created to keep their relationship at the friendship level.
It is rare to see a man who doesn’t get married immediately or soon after the death or break-up of a spouse. That kind of a man likes to grieve over his loss of love for awhile instead of trying to immediately find another love, which might not even end up being true love if it’s rushed. A man like that has a different kind of a heart, which Beth Wiseman illustrated beautifully through Eli’s character in this novel. Katie Ann’s character showed a loving-kindness that many people would not be able to express if they had gone through some of the same things that she had gone through. God could have only been working in and through her for her to be able to do the things that she did for people, even people that hurt her.
This is a good read. I recommend it to anybody who likes to read Amish novels.
