Faithful to Laura by Kathleen Fuller
Laura Stutzman leaves her Kentucky community for Middlefield, Ohio, with one purpose: to find Mark King, the man who pledged his love to her, then left. She can’t move on with her life until he explains why.
Sawyer Thompson wasn't born Amish, but has lived in their community for years. Now he must commit to the Amish church or return to the Yankee world. Having suffered loss at a young age, he understands Laura’s anger, but is determined to follow God’s will and forgive. As their friendship grows, Laura begins to let her guard down.
But new information surfaces about Sawyer’s past and threatens the couple’s budding relationship. Both Laura and Sawyer will need to release the anger in their hearts and forgive the people who’ve harmed them. As Laura struggles to trust God, can Sawyer remain faithful to Laura?
Enter Sawyer Thompson, his Dad owns a Woodworking Shop, and needs someone to run the office. He comes to Laura's Grandmother's house and offers the job to Emma. Emma has way to much on her hands to do, and declines. Before he leaves Laura asks him for the job.
There is so much going on in this story. Will Laura be able to make peace with herself and God for all that has happened to her. Will Sawyer decide to stay Amish and join the Church? Will Emma and Adam finally end up together?
I loved this visit, and all the folks I've come to enjoy being with. Catch up on the ongoing stories, or if this is your first visit in Middlefield...enjoy yourself.
