Product Description

Charlotte is on a mission to discover just what happened to her only brother - and she isn't above playing dress ups and telling a few lies to do so. Calling herself Mary and slipping on Amish dress, Charlotte will do whatever it takes to gain the trust of anyone who might know why Ethan had to die. Unless she gets found out first.

But when Charlotte befriends a quiet Amish man named Isaac Miller, she begins to rethink her motives. And, with a little help from a friend back home, she might discover love comes packaged in ways she had never imagined.

Caring for his sick father and frustrated mother for three long years, dating hasn't been high on the list of Isaac's priorities. But he does believe Hannah King, a woman still grieving the loss of her fiancee, is the woman he is meant to spend the rest of his life with. But when Hannah's family plays host to a woman named Mary, their new cousin shakes things up for all of them.

Publisher's Description

Charlotte came to Amish country to find answers. What she never expected to find was peace.

Charlotte Dolinsky is not above playing dress-up and telling a few lies to find out what happened to her only brother. In fact, that is exactly what she’s come to Lancaster County to do. Now, calling herself Mary and slipping on a kapp, Charlotte will lie her way into the confidence of anyone who knows why Ethan had to die. Unless she gets found out first.

But when Charlotte befriends a quiet Amish man named Isaac Miller, she begins to rethink her motives. And with a little help from a friend back home, Charlotte might find out that love comes packaged in ways she couldn’t have foreseen.

Isaac’s been caring for his cancer-stricken father and sympathizing with his frustrated mother for three difficult years. And that means he hasn’t been dating. He believes Hannah King is the woman for him, but Hannah is still grieving the loss of her fiancé, and Isaac has all he can handle on the farm. When Hannah’s family plays host to a woman named Mary, their new cousin shakes things up for all of them.

As Charlotte digs deeper into the mystery of Ethan’s death, she finds more than she’d bargained for in the community he once called home. But will she ever learn the truth? And what will the community—and her new family—do if they learn the truth about her?

    The first book of Amish Secrets series introduces the reader to Charlotte who poses as an Amish woman to learn the cause of her brother's death while living in the Lancaster County Amish community. Sometimes humorous incidents occur as Charlotte (Mary) accumulates numerous lies in order to accomplish her task. During her journey, she meets with God and begins a relationship with Him.

    I thought the pacing of this book was a little uneven, but my reading it "out of order" (after the second book in the series) may have contributed to that. I had a difficult time liking Charlotte, since her character was so deceitful and wavering for most of the book. The brother that she loved and missed so much didn't sound like a great catch, either. But how wonderful that God's grace can restore every childhood wound! I wish the newfound faith of these siblings was shown to be more evangelical - it seemed built on emotion and (literally) signs in the clouds. The friendship between "cousins" Mary and Hannah was interesting but doomed from the start. Glad to know that Charlotte and Hannah could restart their relationship on their common love for Lena and Ethan, once they offered each other forgiveness.

    Not my favorite book or series, but certainly written from an interesting and unique perspective.

    The Promise of Hope during the Great Depression.

    Hope in the Land, written by Olivia Newport, is a wonderful book involving the Amish and how they thrive during the Great Depression. The story also involves an English family and their experiences too! Gloria Grabill is an Amish wife and mother of a large family. She also runs a chicken and egg business plus works the fields. When a government agent shows up unexpectedly to conduct an interview she invites him to live in the barn and take meals with the family while he is in Lancaster County.

    Minvera Swain is a neighbor who Gloria has known since she was a young girl in school. When Minvera pulls a prank on Gloria plus jokes about her prayer cap Gloria decides to avoid Minvera. Well 40 years later Gloria still feels Minvera looks down her nose at her. When a situation arises for Minvera and she reaches out to Gloria for help, how will Gloria deal with this? What does Gloria do to make sure Minvera learns a valuable lesson? You might be surprised.

    There are also a couple of romances that take place during the story. Who ends up together is a great story too! The road to love and happiness is not straight, and the twist and turns may cause you to wonder if it will work out.

    I did not receive a complimentary copy of Hope in the Land but I enjoyed this book right from the beginning and wanted to offer my honest review. I also rated this book with 5 stars for an excellent read. The quality, value, and expectations of Hope in the Land I felt deserved a 5 rating too. I will be watching for more books by Olivia Newport in the future.

    This review was written for Her Brother's Keeper - eBook.
    It was a very different kind of story, and I enjoyed it very much. I don't know how realistic is is - but then it IS fiction, right? I can't see someone getting away with what Charlotte did, but it made for interesting reading and there was some funny parts too. I liked it and think you might too.

    I have read all of Beth Wisemans other Amish books and they continue to be some of my favorites. That was not the case with this story. Dont get me wrong, it was very well-written and a had a creative premise that intrigued me. I simply did not connect with the characters and was not very invested in the story. I was reading this book for review. Otherwise, I would have probably stopped reading fairly early on.

    Charlotte (aka Mary) was not a likeable character to me. Her lies and behavior make complete sense in the story, and she learns and grows so much from beginning to end emotionally and spiritually. But, I couldnt connect with her. I thought Isaac, Hannah, and even Ryan were great characters. I enjoyed the sections of the book that they were in.

    The fact that Charlotte is undercover to discover the facts behind her brothers death made the book a sad read for me. Fictional storylines that include death do not usually bother me, but it did in this case. It may be because the death in the book had similarities to a real life situation that still saddens me to this day.

    Beth Wiseman has written many good books that I love and I will definitely be reading more of her stories.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
