While a sequel to Lydia's Hope, this reads wonderfully well as a standalone. Perry does a fantastic job of meshing story lines from the first book with this one and a new-to-the-series reader won't have any trouble jumping right into Susanna's story. And what a story it is!
A powerful and inspiring account of sisters separated at birth finding their way to relationship in adulthood. Susanna is shocked to discover that she has two sisters. Hurt and confused that her parents kept the devastating lie right to their deaths. Still reeling from the loss of her mother, she's thrust headlong into a battery of emotional turmoil as she struggles to get her bearings. Sparring with a 'helpful' Amish widower just adds to the chaos circling around her. And then, for good measure, Perry throws in a few dire circumstances beyond anyone's control to keep this plot fast-paced and utterly captivating.
