Review: Caroline’s secret by Amy Lillard

untitled (8)Caroline’s secret by Amy Lillard

Out August 5th, 2014

“In Amy Lillard’s poignant introduction to Wells Landing, a small Amish community is home to two brave souls hoping to forget their painful pasts and rebuild their faith in the future. . .

Caroline Hostetler arrived in Oklahoma determined to forge a new life for herself and her daughter, Emma. As a single mother, she values the warmth and safety she’s found in close-knit Wells Landing. She’s even caught the eye of a handsome newcomer–a man who just may be the partner she longs for and the father Emma deserves. But the arrival of an Englisher threatens to lay bare the secrets she’s worked so hard to leave behind. . .

After losing his life-long sweetheart, Andrew Fitch moved to Wells Landing to work in his uncle’s furniture business and nurse his broken heart. Finding love again seems all but impossible–until he meets Caroline and Emma. But his plans to join their lives together may be shattered when the truth of Caroline’s past comes to light–unless, together, they can learn the true meaning of sacrifice and forgiveness. . .”

divider-NEWCaroline’s secret is a beautifully written family saga. Set amongst the Amish in Oklahoma, Caroline tries to forge a new life for her and her daughter, in Wells Landing.

Caroline’s secret is a tender and heart-warming romance. It also conveys beautifully the traditions and culture of the Amish people.

What I found more inspirational was how Caroline’s faith propelled her and gave her strength and hope- even when none was to be found.

If you are looking for something a bit different to read this summer, then I suggest this sweet novel. The best part is that this the first book in a new series and I can not wait to return to Wells Landing.
