Firestorm is Laura Hiltons best accomplishment to date! I became so deeply involved with Gabes life that I found myself in tears several times. Penned with such raw and primal depth and sensitivity, I melted emotionally. My heart ached as one tragedy transcended to another. Amish fiction at its very best!

Firestorm is a great story about faith and trust! It was interesting to read about the Amish in a little-known settlement area. As always, Laura Hilton does a wonderful job bringing her characters to life. I was easily swept away in Gabe and Bridgets story and couldnt put the book down! I strongly recommend Firestorm to anyone who loves Amish or inspirational fiction.
If you haven't read the Amish genre because you think you cant relate to them, Im sorry to tell you that you are wrong. The Amish are just like ushuman beings who go through life trials that include temptation, birth, loss, death, grief, marriage, teasing, financial struggle, and health issues, as well as natural disasters like floods, fires, and storms, and so much more. Laura V. Hilton writes an action-packed book that keeps you on the edge of your seat! The characters come alive in scenes that seem to place you right there in the moment. Emotions, thoughts and dialogue all pull the reader in with each turn of the page. I know I wanted more of Gabe and Bridgets story. I can't wait for book two in the Amish of Mackinac County series.

Another captivating and emotional read by Laura V. Hilton with Firestorm. I always look forward to reading a Laura Hilton book and this one didnt disappoint. Firestorm is the first in the series set in Mackinac County, Michigan. This action-packed story is filled with strong characters, vividly descriptive scenes, and dialogue that kept this reader from putting it down. Readers will appreciate the depth, wisdom, and Gods unfailing love and greatness, even during the devastating times that Laura interlaces into her plotalong with Amish proverbs and biblical Scriptures.
Laura V. Hilton tackles another Amish firemans story. Action gets as hot romantically as the local fires and rescues this man races daringly toward. Its an Amish romantic/suspense novel that feeds the flames of burning emotions.

I love how Laura Hilton shares about the research that goes into her books, because she makes the settings seem more authentic, which, in turn, helps bring the characters to life. This story took its sweet time drawing me in, like a good family friend. I found that I could relate to the characters when it seemed they just couldnt catch a break, which seemed to mirror my week. Sure they are just characters in a book, but they could be real people working toward a goal as they overcome roadblocks and detours along the way. Fathers providing and doing what they feel is best for their families, but then realizing something is missing. Young adults thinking they have it all figured out, but then discovering that they missed a step. I am jealous that they get to figure out these issues and resolve them, but then I also hope we get to visit them again to see how they incorporate these lessons into their next big roadblocks.
