    Gideon Miller doesn't have a lot of answers to life hard questions. But one thing he's absolutely sure about, is that the Amish life is not for him. Fifteen years after leaving home, he works at an auto shop and helps many young people make the transition from being Amish to the real world. Wanting to get them away from the strict lifestyle and potentially bad home situations, Gideon does everything in his power to get them on their feet.

    When a autistic teenager come to the shop looking for work, Gideon is at a loss for what to do with her. Kiki seems to be a handful, and despite Gideon's attraction to her older sister Mari, he is reluctant to hire Kiki and take responsibility for her.

    Then his brother, Moriah, makes an appearance at the shop. Gideon wants to help his brother, but when things take a turn for the worse, Gideon finds himself unable to help his brother. Fighting the demons of the past, Gideon has nowhere to turn. Will he be able to resolve the hurt of the past - or is it just too late?

    The only thing I felt was missing from this book was more resolution at the end. It was a wonderful novel, but the end felt rushed and unresolved. There was lots of anticipation and tension between the characters, but then the plot just fizzled out. I enjoyed this novel a lot, but I just wish there would have been more instead of cutting it short. While I enjoy a story that move along and doesn't drag; realistically, I don't want it to fly by after all the great buildup with the story and characters.

    This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.

    I am naturally drawn to historical, rather than contemporary fiction, but I made an exception for Still Life in Shadows. I'm so glad I did. Alice Wisler created one of the most engrossing story worlds I have ever read, and definitely the best in contemporary fiction I've read. The truths were gently but profoundly proclaimed, and I deeply sympathized with the well-drawn characters. This book is not only entertaining, but important. I hope you'll read it for yourself to find out why.

    This is a very well written book, with characters that you can identify with, right from the beginning. Stories with an Amish twist are always interesting to me, as the lifestyle seems too good to be true. While this book may have given a different slant to that seemingly idyllic way of life, I found myself believing this to be much more the way things really are. What a blessing to know that God's forgiveness is there for all of us.
