Olivia Newport’s novels twist through time to find where faith and passions meet. Her husband and two twentysomething children provide welcome distraction from the people stomping through her head on their way into her books. She chases joy in stunning Colorado at the foot of the Rockies, where daylilies grow as tall as she is.
The ending had me completely shocked and slightly distressed. I thought about this book for days after finishing it. This book is one to read and remember.

MippyNorthern UtahAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Characters You Can 'Feel'October 3, 2014MippyNorthern UtahAge: 35-44Gender: femaleThis is a wonderful Amish story. I very much enjoyed that the author wrote so you could 'feel' what the characters were feeling. I could almost 'feel' their struggles, sadness, hopes, desires and triumphs. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I'd give it 4.5 stars (if it were possible to display that). A truly enjoyable story and I very much was entertained and engrossed in the story while reading how life unfolded for Abbie Weaver and the other characters.

She wrote about a time and place that I have not read before. I did not know that any Amish people had lived in Colarado. I was never sure in the story who Abbie was going to marry. These settlers had a lot of decisions to make while living in Colarado. I received this book from Barbour Publishing for a fair and honest opinion.
DaliSB, INAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful!September 13, 2014DaliSB, INAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Abbie Weaver, ever the optimist and encourager, is always looking out for the needs of others. She's ready to help and encourage even when drought, hail, coyotes, and poor crops persist. Her Amish community hasn't been able to gather for worship in a very long time, which is just one of the things that Abby longs for. She wants the community to stay together and hopes that all will change for the better, and soon. But as she continues to work toward encouraging others and hoping for things to change for the better, it seems as if such may not be the case, and everything she'd hoped for just might not come to pass.
Olivia Newport beautifully unfolds this story of love, faith, determination, and hope. Her descriptions of the Colorado landscapes, with all of its beauty and disasters are detailed, breathtaking, and vivid. She makes you feel as if you are in the story feeling what the characters feel and experiencing what they go through. She also captures the time period and occurrences with amazing accuracy. But most of all, she captures the heart of what can happen when you persist in love, faith, determination, and hope.
I received a copy of the book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
