But handsome and smitten Seth Wyse stumbles upon a way to help her and they marry to keep Grace's autistic son safe from his ill-intentioned uncle.

Graces beauty almost cost her everything. This new start is all she has left.
When Grace Beiler was only a girl, she was married off to an older Amish man in order to save her familys farm. Years later, she finds herself newly widowed and a mother to a young son. She has finally fled her sad past and plans to settle into a quiet life in Pennsylvania.
As soon as she arrives, she captures the attention of Seth Wyse, the most eligible bachelor in Pine Creek. Seth is candid about his feelings for her, and for her son Abel, but Grace is determined to protect her heart. Her determination falters when her brother-in-law reveals the troubling contents of her late husbands will.
Seth offers Grace his hand in marriage, and thus a means of escape. But despite his having saved her from another loveless marriage, Grace is slow to trust her new husband. And as the months wear on, Seth wonders if he has made a mistake. But God is quietly at work in their hearts, and Seth and Grace soon discover that threads of grace bind them together in a tapestry rich in hope and love.

Grace Raber married at a young age to an older Amish man, Silas Beiler, to save her family's farm. Now, years later, she is widowed with a very young autistic son, Abel and has moved from Ohio to Pennsylvania in hopes to start a new life. Her new neighbor, Seth Wyse is drawn to Grace and Able and hopes she will come to love him too. Unforeseen news from Grace's past comes knocking at her door and Seth offers to marry her to protect her and Abel. Can Grace trust her new husband, or will he be abusive like her first husband?
I loved this book. I love the way Seth gently loves Grace and Abel, giving them hope that there is healing after abuse. God's grace and love is woven within the story with a surprising outcome.

CarrieVirginiaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another Stunning Amish Romance from Kelly Long!August 13, 2013CarrieVirginiaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Loved this book by Kelly Long. Grace experienced an awful marriage. Now a widow she and her autistic son have resettled in another community. When her past catches up with her she ends up married to Seth. He's an amazing hero and protects her when catastrophe threatens. Kelly Long's characters have perseverance and hope "in spades," something that I love! I listened to this book on audio. There is an element in the story that I've never seen in Kelly Long's books and although it was somewhat distracting at times it did not diminish my appreciation for the overall story and characterization. Don't miss this story!

weatherlover1U.P MiAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Loved it!July 25, 2013weatherlover1U.P MiAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I have so far really enjoyed this series and was looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed. I was a little surprised to see that the story-line included another marriage before love idea but it was very enjoyable.
What I liked: This book was well written and enjoyable. I liked how the touchy subject of spousal abuse was handled. I have read quite a few books dealing with this idea and this one is one of the best I have read. It just felt real. Grace had to deal with the pain of her past as well as fear for her future and I was cheering her on wanting her to find true love and happiness. Her son was also a great character even with his issues he was fun to read about and how he interacted and helped the story play out made this book great. I also liked Seth and how he had his own insecurities and how both Grace and her son helped him just as much as he helped them.
What I did not like: As much as I liked the book I did have a few issues with how fast they got together and how Seth seemed kind of pushy to get the relationship to progress. The part about the Will and the requirements felt a little unbelievable which is why my rating was a little lower.
Over all this was a very enjoyable book and I felt it wrapped up the series nicely. I highly recommend that you go back and read the first and second book before reading this one. I would definitely add this series to your reading list!
