_______________________________

In Brunstetter’s other Amish series, Indiana Cousin’s, we see a tragic accident transform the lives of Amish friends & lovers unexpectedly. The novel centers around the love story of Lorraine & Wayne who plan to get married next season, but are on a road trip with friends to Hershey Park when their car hits a pole.  Wayne wakes up & he has lost his leg, realizes he won’t be able to farm & support Lorraine so he calls off their wedding.

Deep inside Lorraine knows that Wayne is just feeling inadequate since he won’t be able to do his chosen profession & doesn’t want to create an unnecessary burden for her, but he is also being encouraged by his mother Ada to forget the marriage as well.  It seems everybody has given up on them, besides a few friends, & when an old boyfriend comes into town even Lorraine begins to think that there is no more hope.

This was definitely a better book than ‘A Merry Heart’ & it really shows how difficult situations can be made better if people will allow themselves to try something new instead of being upset about how things will never be the same.
