The importance of finding peace and acceptance, especially within oneself, is a central theme in this book, the second in Wiseman's Daughters of Promise series. Well-defined characters and story make for an enjoyable read.
Carley Marek takes a month off from her newspaper job and goes to visit her friend Lillian in an Amish community. Carley is amazed at the peace she witnesses in Lillian, and she plans to write an article on the Amish way of life. But everything changes, and questions abound, when Carley meets Noah Stoltzfus, Lillian's shunned brother-in-law.
When Lillian's son is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, Noah may be the only one who can save him. Will his family, and the community, allow it? And will Carley have reason to stay after her vacation? (THOMAS NELSON, May, 320 pp., $14.99)
