Ruby Weaver's curly red hair isn't the only thing that sets her apart from her Amish community in 1863. Twenty-eight and single, Ruby doesn't believe a woman needs to be married in order to be happy. Her ailing friend Lovinia Fischer, however, has other ideas and wants Ruby to promise to marry her husband after she dies. Never imagining she'd have to fulfill that vow, Ruby agrees. And she's not the only one. Lovinia has extracted a similar promise from her husband, Gideon.
With both Ruby and Gideon
reluctant to keep their promises, a compromise must be reached. Ruby
will spend her days with Gideon's family--helping to raise the children
and keep the house--but her nights will be spent at her sister's
neighboring house. But this arrangement raises eyebrows in their
conservative Amish community, and it soon becomes clear that Ruby must
make a decision--marry Gideon or turn her back on her friend, the
children she's grown to love . . . and their father.
About The Author
This Amish story takes place during the Civil War, and this community in
Ohio is touched in way you won’t see coming, and will they be able to
stay to their beliefs and still survive?
The author has given us a
strong woman to follow, and at 28 she is bucking the trend, but holding
to her own beliefs, and yet being a woman of faith.
We also have an Amish man who has suffered and survived, but is still being tested, and we meet him at one of his lowest points.
We see how these people and watch how these two people are thrown together by a promise each has made.
the second book that I have read in this series, and you will be
updated, but you might want to go back and read the first, and there is
another coming, and hopefully some more answers!
I have enjoyed reading about these early Amish settlers!
I received this book Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
