Just as she's settling into her new life caring for Jonathan's children, Katie receives a threatening note from her past, someone who befriended Katie during her Rumspringa, her running around years. Those years were a dark time for Katie. She dressed English, lied to her parents, and experimented with many activities forbidden in the Amish way of life. After one tumultuous night, Katie realized how far she'd strayed from her values. Scared by the person she'd become, she ran back home and vowed to cut all ties with the outside world.

For a split second, Katie feels certain she's about to receive everything she's ever wanted. . .
Twenty-year-old Katie Brenneman has always quietly fancied Jonathan Lundy. So when the brokenhearted widower asks her to help him take care of his two young girls, Katie knows it will be a trying time—yet she cannot pass up a golden opportunity to get to know this man better.
Just as she's settling into her new life, a message arrives from Katie's past, threatening to expose her darkest secrets. During her Rumspringa, her running-around years, she experimented with activities forbidden in the Amish way of life. Frightened by how far she'd strayed from her values, Katie ran back home, vowing to cut all ties with the outside world. Now her transgressions are coming back to haunt her, just as Jonathan seems willing to welcome her into his heart.
Will the past destroy Katie's chances for love? Or will Katie allow herself to accept God's love, forgive her past, and receive everything she's ever wanted?

Paige4 Stars Out Of 5September 10, 2009PaigeThis was great, but for me not as good as Hidden. For me it didn't have enough of Anna and Henry in it. But overall a great read.
pam5 Stars Out Of 5May 24, 2009pamThis is another great book by Shelley Shepard Gray. When Katie and Holly meet up again for the first time and Katie learns about Brandon I cried this scene was so touching. I also love that Jonathan and his kids fall in love with Katie. I can't wait to read the third book about Anna and Katie's friend Winnie.(Jonathan's sister.)
Sylvia Shelton5 Stars Out Of 5May 20, 2009Sylvia SheltonBoth this and "Hidden", the first in the series, is well written, holds interest, makes you yearn for that simpler but busy lifestyle, and the fellowship.
