Publisher Comments:

Love alone isn’t enough to overcome some obstacles.

 

Lena Kauffman is a young Old Order Amish schoolteacher who has dealt all her life with attention raised by a noticeable birthmark on her cheek. Having learned to move past the stares and whispers, Lena channels her zest for living into her love of teaching. But tensions mount as she is challenged to work with a rebellious young man and deal with several crises at the schoolhouse that threaten her other students. Her lack of submission and use of ideas that don’t line up with the Old Ways strengthen the school board’s case as they begin to believe that Lena is behind all the trouble.

One member of the school board, Grey Graber, feels trapped by his own stifling circumstances. His wife, Elsie, has shut him out of her life, and he doesn’t know how long he can continue to live as if nothing is wrong. As the two finally come to a place of working toward a better marriage, tragedy befalls their family.

Lena and Grey have been life-long friends, but their relationship begins to crumble amidst unsettling deceptions, propelling each of them to finally face their own secrets. Can they both find a way past their losses and discover the strength to build a new bridge?

Casey Herringshaw, February 18, 2011 (view all comments by Casey Herringshaw)
The metaphor of this story if what grabs me every time I read this book and this is the second time I have done so. The symbol of the “bridge” between two of the characters always makes me take a moment and savor the power of it.
There are several of such moments in this book, I wish I could share them all, but you’ll have to read the book to find them. Suffice it is to say I stop, dwell on the words, their rhythm and impact.
I love how Cindy’s books move with a very easy quality. There aren’t a lot of hundred dollar words, but she paints a picture of life in an Amish community that could very easily be any other community amongst you and I.
All the plots in this book make it an interesting read, but never a confusing one. Lena, Grey, Cara, Deborah, Jonathon, they all are painted with depth and precision and I am looking forward to book three getting here in a few months. It promises a fabulous conclusion. I would suggest reading this series in order.
I think above all the story is a prevailing one. It speaks to the heart with the characters and the words that make them dance across the page.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
