A suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker
After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she's getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky...if only she wasn't too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone-even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she'll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.
For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called "The Recluse" confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he's misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God's gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there's always more to someone than meets the eye.
Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.
About the author:
Shelley Shepard Gray is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers prestigious Carol Award, and a two-time HOLT Medallion winner. She lives in southern Ohio, where she writes full-time, bakes too much, and can often be found walking her dachshunds on her town's bike trail.
Wow - "Her Secret" is a great book, full of suspense, fast-paced, and kept me reading fast to get to the end! Shelley has a great talent for writing and this was still her same great style of writing, but so different from other Amish novels with the whole stalker and suspense aspect. Hannah and Isaac are both such great main characters. I really empathized with Hannah as she has lived such a lonely life with the fear of being followed and constantly feeling like she's looking over her shoulder. Isaac as unknowingly judged Hannah and comes to new realization, and I love the compassion that he has. This is such a great romantic suspense novel that if you are a fan of this genre, you will want to read this for sure. This is book #1 in Shelley's Amish of Hart County series and I am eager to read book #2!
