This book suffers somewhat from an overly convoluted plot, but it's still absorbing and quite creepy—an image of a stone angel silently watching lingers in the mind like an almost-forgotten nightmare.
Leah Kurtz, a single Amish woman, has assumed responsibility for the infant girl of her deceased friend Barbara. To help pay for her new baby's care, Leah accepts a job with Dr. Mark Morelli.
A geneticist who's studying hereditary diseases afflicting the Amish, Mark needs Leah to act as a community liaison and to map the family trees of the people in her village. Though threats are made against both—and a forbidden attraction flares between them—the two continue to work together. Lives, maybe even her daughter's, depend on Mark's work. (Jun., 384 pp., $6.99)
