When Elizabeth Kaufman received the news of her husband's death at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863, she felt only relief. She determined that she would never be at the mercy of any man again, even if it meant not having a family of her own. Then along came Aaron Zook . . .
Despite the severity of his injuries, Aaron has resolved to move west and leave the pain of the past behind him. He never imagined that the Amish way of life his grandfather had rejected long ago would be so enticing. That, and a certain widow he can't get out of his mind.
Yet, even in a simple community, life has a way of getting complicated. Aaron soon finds that while he may have left the battlefield behind, there is another fight he must win--the one for the heart of the woman he loves.
This is a great continuation of the series and a story that I felt immediately drawn into. I highly recommend that you read the first two books before reading this one as the characters, the area, the story all becomes so real and you want the whole story in order! Elizabeth has a fresh start to life, by herself, on her own, not being controlled or tied to a man, a husband. However, not every man is the same and Aaron is determined to prove that. I loved the historical details throughout this book and this time period has always been a favorite of mine to read. I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next, but at the same time didn't want the book to end.
