About The Book:
Beautiful and winsome, Betsy Zook never questioned her family's rigid expectations, nor those of devoted Hans--but then she never had to. Not until the night she's taken captive in a surprise Indian raid. Facing brutality and hardship, Betsy finds herself torn between her pious upbringing and the feelings she's developing for a native man who encourages her to see God in all circumstances.
Greatly anguished by Betsy's captivity, Hans turns to Tessa Bauer for comfort. She responds eagerly, overlooking troubling signs of Hans's hunger for revenge. But if Betsy is ever restored to the Amish, will things between Hans and Tessa have gone too far?
Inspired by true events, this deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of prerevolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.

First I will say this is book three, and the conclusion, in the Amish Beginnings series, however it does well as a stand alone book. It helps to read the first two books in the series, but you won't be completely lost if you have not.
With strong storylines and characters you will be intrigued with each word read. I loved all the characters and the multiple story lines that come into play make it a great reading experience. A fascinating read to be sure. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
