My rating: 5 of 5 stars
From the moment avery crashed her car in Gideon’s field I had high hopes that this would be an amazing book…and I gotta say Amy didn’t disappoint!
I loved it when they started calling her Annie instead of Avery(and I gotta say I forgot her first name was Avery by the second book) I loved watching him slowly start living again as his grief stopped taking over his life and I loved watching Annie learn what she could from Katie Rose and Mary Elizabeth and even Gideon’s mom. Be prepared to cry…on more than one occasian.
Your in for a great ride with this series…be on the look out for my review on book 2 Katie’s choice
Gideon Fisher wants one thing out of life — to be left alone. This is not the Amish way, but he’s devastated after the death of his wife and son to the point of losing his faith. He buys a farm on the outskirts of the district and pulls away from his community. But when a freak spring snowstorm brings a beautiful Englisher to his farm, what choice does Gideon have but to let her in?
Dallas socialite Avery Ann Hamilton is intrigued by the Amish farmer who pulls her out of the snow and into his austere lifestyle. Poor little rich girl, Avery has just gone through (yet another) bad breakup. Every man she meets only wants her for her father’s money. All she has ever wanted is to be loved for herself. Avery soon discovers the Oklahoma Amish country is the perfect place to hide out and heal her broken heart.
But she finds a peace in those back roads that she’s never felt before. Now her life has purpose and meaning as she connects with God and those around her. And there’s something more as she begins to care for this man who needs both love and forgiveness.
Gideon never wanted to live again much less fall in love, but Avery finds her way into his heart, showing him the beauty of life and God’s greatness. Yet as the feelings between Avery and Gideon grow, can they overcome their dissimilar lifestyles, or will their sheer differences pull them apart?
I’m honestly not sure I need to put this here but I received this book as part of my welcome package for Amy’s street team
