Tess Baker thought she had the perfect everything—until her best friend,
and (now ex) husband, betrayed her, leaving her with nothing, except
her career as an investigative reporter. In her work for a leading
magazine, Tess can lose herself in whatever story she’s chasing. So
she’s devastated when her next assignment is far from the exciting
location or action-packed quest she anticipated.
Thanks to a recent misstep, Tess is handed a bus ticket to Pennsylvania—to Amish country. The story? Write about living in the past in a modern-day world. Determined to prove herself by coming up with something juicier than a run-of-the-mill human-interest piece, Tess makes her way through this strange place, digging for dirt . . .
Yet no matter where she turns, scandal eludes her. Instead, Tess encounters kindness and grace, even striking up unexpected friendships with women who bear a wisdom and capacity for forgiveness she can’t imagine. It’s only when she meets eighty-something Miss Lottie, beloved by the community even after decades away, that Tess realizes she may have hit upon the story she was looking for. But can she betray the people who have opened their arms—and their hearts—for the sake of a scoop?
About The Author
How does a magazine reporter end up living like an Amish woman? Well, Tess was not a happy camper, but soon she is being absorbed in everyday life. Along the way we are reinterduced to characters from past books, and more than enough information is given, so you won't be lost, but they were all great reads, I loved being updated on their lives.
Can this young bitter woman, whom has suffered the ultimate betrayal, learn the cornerstone of having faith? Forgiveness is not easy, but these people show her Grace and acceptance, and our Tess has a major decision to make!
This is a beautiful story, and I loved that we are gifted with an epilogue!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
