With her heart – and her loyalty – on the line, can she let true love in her life?
Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive ‘resident’ status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides! Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai, Montana to give comfort to her father after her mother’s death.
She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother’s most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational ‘tell-all’ book about the Amish. Lydia soon finds herself falling in love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future as an Amish bride. Will the pain of her childhood—and her potential betrayal of her community—keep her from committing her whole heart?

About The Author
What a wonderful read, the second book in the Seven Brides for Seven Brother's series...and equally as good!!
Pull up a chair and get comfy for a return visit to Kootenai, Montana. We reunite with some old friends, and make new and lasting friendships. Here we celebrate life, and morn death with loving friends and neighbors.
We meet Lydia Wyse on the road to her parents home, she is now English, and coming home to Wake her Mem. She is working now at editing books, and has left the Amish way of life. The peace she encounters in the valley here thrills her, and she stops to take a few picture....totally not an Amish thing. She has an encounter, and really not a pleasant one with Gideon Hooley. He was patiently trying to win the attention of a horse. A wild fellow named Blue, when they are disturbed by Lydia.
From this meeting though, a few sparks fly. Will Lydia be able to return to the Amish? Will Gideon be able to let go of the secret that has been haunting him, and move on with his life?
There is also the ever present feeling that Lydia has about her birth, will she accept what her birth Mem did? She was brought up in a loving Amish home, with parents that adored her. A lot of her questions are answered in her Mem's Promise Box.
Be ready for a wonderful, heartwarming book, and all of your questions get answered. I loved that the story is followed right to the end! No cliff hangers here, PTL. Enjoy!
