What Ella doesn't know is that Loyal secretly hopes she will occupy this house again . . . as his wife. He begins inviting her over, to ask her opinion on changes he wants to make. As their friendship blooms, Ella starts to wonder about Loyal's intentions, especially when her best friend, Dorothy, hints that Loyal is not who he seems. There's no way the golden boy of their close-knit Amish community could be interested in Ella, long the wallflower, hidden away caring for her ailing parents.

A truly beloved writer of Christian romantic fiction, Shelley Shepard Gray, author of the popular Sisters of the Heart series, once again joins the ranks of Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter, and Cindy Woodsmall as she celebrates the beauty and simplicity of the Amish community. A story of faith, dedication, and deep, heartfelt emotion, The Protector is the second book in her acclaimed Families of Honor inspirational series—a moving and beautiful story of young Amish woman forced to turn over the family farm after her parents’ death to a man who secretly desires to share it with her…as her husband.
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.
