Listening to Love (An Amish Journey #2) by Beth Wiseman
He’s Amish. She’s Englisch. They are best friends, despite what the gossips say. But could the rumor mill know more than they do?
Englischer Natalie Collins looks forward to Friday night suppers at Levi and Mary Shetler’s house every week: delicious food, wonderful conversation with her Amish friends, and, best of all, the presence of Levi’s older brother Lucas. Natalie and Lucas have become best friends despite their different backgrounds. They share a love of books, and he is teaching her about God in a way that she can understand.
But the closer they become, the more opinions everyone seems to have. Levi and Mary, Lucas’s family, and even Natalie’s mother—whose own life is a mess at the moment—have concerns about their relationship. Why can’t everyone understand that it’s possible to just be friends? Besides, they couldn’t be together even if they wanted to be. Lucas would never leave the Amish faith, and Natalie is Englisch and pursuing a degree in veterinary medicine.
But when a terrifying accident happens, Natalie and Lucas are forced to confront their true feelings and decide if they can stay true to themselves and each other.
The second novel in the Amish Journeys series by bestselling author Beth Wiseman explores the compromises and sacrifices it takes to truly listen to love.

I was really enjoying this story, and being back with old friends, that I had previously been involved in.
Two of the characters Natalie, and Lucas are the main focus of this story, and the author has us torn as to what direction their lives will/should take. Then, don’t get two comfortable, the story seems to explode in more than one direction.
This read will keep your attention, and never saw most of it coming, my mind had been going in a completely different direction.
Don’t miss this one, you won’t be disappointed!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
