Fans of Amish novels will enjoy this latest offering by two equally talented authors, Clark and Gould. Their individual writing styles are apparent in this book but work well together to build a story of mystery, secrets and romance. The characters are interesting and will not be forgotten by the reader.

Lexie Jaeger has always known she was adopted and is OK with it. Being a midwife, her focus on bringing new life into the world brings her joy and satisfaction. When her father gives her a mysterious box her grandmother left to her, Lexie is confused and curious. She journeys to Pennsylvania to uncover her true identity. She is also there to help a midwife who has been charged with killing a mother and her baby. When Lexie meets her grandmother, she finally feels she is at home, but when uncomfortable truths are revealed the family is torn apart. Can Lexie forgive those who have turned her world upside down and come to realize that God is in control of our lives? (HARVEST HOUSE, Feb., 404 pp., $13.99)
