Turning Home (Tompkins Mill #1) by Janice Kay Johnson
In this tender Amish romance, an Amish man who is returning
to his community and faith is drawn to a young woman who is still reeling from past wounds.
When Luke Bowman returns to the Amish faith after years of being away from home, he does so with absolute conviction. Those feelings are shaken when he meets Julia Durant, a non-Amish woman who works at his family's furniture-making business. Despite his instincts, Luke is drawn to Julia, and although Julia is still recovering from a brutal assault when she was a college student, she is drawn to Luke as well.
As Luke and Julia grow closer, and their fragile friendship grows stronger, Luke wants to be with Julia, but the reason he came home--his faith--is now the thing keeping them apart. Luke and Julia will have to decide whether their relationship can survive this divide, and whether the home Luke has made in the Amish faith is one that's fit for two.
About The Author
What an awesome book, I was drawn in and the author didn't let me go. There are several stories surrounding the main plot, just like real life.
A horrible attack was terrifying and controlling her life, Julia Durant, moves closer to her brother, and takes a new job working for an Amish furniture making business.
We also meet Luke a man who walked one path, away from his faith, and is now back and staying on the straight and narrow. Yes, he is attracted to this struggling woman, but he cannot jeopardize what he has worked so hard to return to.
This story has a bit of everything, and it felt so real to me. I could see Julia struggling to belong, wanting a real relationship with God, and friends. She was searching for a deeper faith, and dealing with her trauma.
Luke is also struggling with a lie he told, and they mount up, but we get to see why, and I had to agree with him. There is a solution, but you need to keep turning those pages for answers.
I am really looking forward to the next book in this series, a new author for me, but one I will now follow!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Berkley Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
