Back Cover Copy:
Sarah Esh’s peaceful life turns upside down one afternoon when a parachutist crash-lands on her family’s farm. The stranger insists his life is in danger and begs her to keep his presence secret. Sarah’s promise tangles her in a web of deceit that endangers innocent people, ruins her best friend’s reputation, and tears apart the Amish community. After she discovers the man’s true purpose, Sarah must confess her mistake and repair the damage she’s done. But how can she admit the truth to Jacob Zook knowing it will end their relationship?
Although he was jilted by Sarah’s older sister, Jakob finds himself attracted to Sarah’s kindness and honesty. Her innocence and gentle spirit encourage him to open his heart. Then he discovers the deep secrets Sarah’s been hiding—secrets that destroyed his family and now threaten their love.
This book is the third book in the Sisters & Friends series about the Amish. Sarah is helping to prepare for her sister Emma’s marriage when a man drops from a plane using a parachute. From the beginning of this story almost until the end, secrets cause pain, hurt, and misunderstanding. Sarah becomes caught up in a web of deception because she tries to help the man from the plane. However, he only lies to her about everything from being injured to supposedly being in danger.
This story kept my interest because I wanted to see Sarah find happiness and love with her crush Jakob. Rebecca, her best friend, also gets caught up in the situation because of her boyfriend Abner who lies to her.
I think my favorite character is Mammi, Sarah’s grandmother. She is everything a grandmother should be including feisty, loving, honest, and determined.
So if you like Amish books, check out this book for yourself.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from CelebrateLit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
