That's the first danger of this series. The second is these darn hard-working Amish women! Right in the middle of reading this book and sipping my wine, I started feeling guilty because I hadn't cleaned my kitchen yet and here these ladies are scrubbing floors, gardening, sewing, etc. So I got up and cleaned the kitchen.
Hopefully, if the series is long enough, my entire house will be clean.
All in all, I loved the story...although it was very subdued and sad most of the way through. I'm extremely happy that I finished this one today, and the final book was released yesterday. I just downloaded it and can continue right on with the story. I have already guessed that Heather is Lettie's 'lost' daughter, but it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. Will Lettie recognize her as such when she and Grace come to fetch her?
A wife and mother harbors a secret for about 25 years. She leaves her husband and children to discover more about the outcome of the transgression. Her parents eventually know the why of the unexplained departure.
The wife is missed by the whole family. The oldest daughter desires to find her mother and bring her home. The mother has met with an old beau. Still, she searches for something else. She travels to a second town and recognizes women from home.
The daughter asks a young Englisher woman to take her to the town where the mother has been seen. The young Englisher is battling her own situation and has recently found out she was adopted from an Amish family.
