Levi Cooper was born in Apple Lake and schooled in the Amish way of life until he was seven years old. After his father died in an accident, Levi's mother married an Englischer and was consequently shunned by her Amish relatives. Forced to leave the Plain community, Levi grows up as an Englischer, scarcely thinking about the life he used to live. Haunted by painful memories and on the path to self-destruction, Levi meets an Amish girl who is looking for adventure.

She is driven to fulfill every dream on the list made my her late friend Dottie Mae before her untimely death, quite a daunting task to fit in between all the responsibilities Rebecca shoulders in caring for her sick mother and trying to please her demanding father. Rebecca's sense of obligation to her friend prompts her to try out quite a range of adventures before time to settle down and be baptized into her Amish church. Levi Cooper seems an unlikely companion in those adventures, but circumstances seem to throw them together. As they spend time together, Rebecca is surprised to learn of Levi's Amish connections but has no hope that anything permanent can come for the two of them. And when Rebecca learns of Levi's deepest secret, her whole world is turned upside down. Will love and forgiveness be able to overcome hurt and anger?
Jennifer Beckstrand brings a new voice to the Amish fiction genre. The conflicts her characters face seem a little "rougher and tougher" than in some of the other stories I've read. In both of these stories (Kate's Song and Rebecca's Rose), she has an interesting way of drawing you directly in to the characters' dilemmas without revealing the whole problem at once. The complexity of the situation grows throughout the story, and then another "kink" appears to add a new level of intrigue -- even if you feel confident of how things might ultimately work out. She certainly kept me hooked to the very end of both books. And I'm definitely looking forward to next year's release of Miriam's Quilt, the next installment in the Forever After in Apple Lake series.
