Two daughters of the notorious Cardano family tiptoe into a forbidden room...and disappear forever...or so it seems. Years later, Detective Rollin Wells, a cop itching to bring down local Mafia kingpins, finds himself in a bloodbath...and his young partner dead.
After a miraculous escape, Wells hides in a hay-filled Amish barn and is discovered by young Katie Lehman, a young mother who stirs memories he's tried for years to forget. As God leads Rollin into a showdown with the mob, Katie faces a personal crisis: should she marry the Amish man ardently courting her...or follow her heart?
Melanie Dobson deftly weaves a compelling story that lends insight into the early workings of the Cleveland mob AND the Amish society. I LOVED turning each page to see what would happen next...and how Melanie would extricate her loveable characters from deadly situations.

I really enjoyed this book. When I ordered it I thought about the old Western with John Wayne called "The Angel and the Badman". Didn't come close. You can tell alot of research went into the book. It was difficult to put down. I really enjoyed the book and the characters. Ã¢â¢Â
This was a very good Christian mystery. Once I got into it, it was hard to lay aside. After reading the Prologue, I almost returned the book to the store because it was so ---- non interesting. The first chapter was not much better. HOWEVER, once the story began unfolding, it was a great read! I will recommend it to my friends and keep it on my bookshelf.
This book was hard to get into and was tough to read but after I finally got into the book it turned out to be really good, This book you have to find a quiet place to read because it has alot going on in it. It has alot of history in it but I enjoyed reading it.
