Summary

Quiet and soft-spoken, Kate Zook is the responsible eldest daughter in an Amish family and prides herself on fulfilling her role. Then, one fateful snowy night, she uncharacteristically speaks her mind - and unwittingly plays a part in a horrible accident.

Wracked by guilt over her role in the tragedy that left her brother David injured, Kate devotes herself to his care, going so far as to take on his chores in the fields. Even so, her brother’s resentment toward her grows, and David torments Kate, making her increasingly isolated life even more difficult.

Though Kate’s parents have emotionally withdrawn, someone outside the home takes an interest in Kate and notes her clear grief. Samuel, a local boy, has recently returned from a wild rumschpringe - the Amish term for exploring the wider world - and recommitted to his community. Intrigued by Kate’s gentle yet loyal ways, he begins to fall in love with her. But tensions rise as he refuses to put up with David’s rage. As Kate’s heart begins to stir and cry out for happiness, she must rely on faith to find forgiveness or risk losing out on love.

Touching story!

This was the second audio book by Sarah Price that I listened to and she just gets better and better. This story moved me in so many ways and I loved the way Sarah weaves in the Christian faith into her stories. This one was so sweet! I loved Samuel and Kate and would like to see a future story about Kate's brother David (maybe there already is one?). I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a story full of depth and emotion.

Enjoyed this story of an Amish young lady who had problem with an alcohol related buggy accident.. Kate felt responsible and was unable to give up the guilt she felt.

Just okay

I just couldn't give this book 5 stars because David blamed Kate for his accident and more. It was just ridiculous because she actually believed it and nobody would stand up to David and tell him that he and he alone is responsible for his actions.
I am in a wheelchair and I can tell you that it gives you no right to be mean and belittle people. Also, people don't need to be afraid to speak up and let that person know their behaving badly. Even though we have a disability we're still human and it's okay to call us out.

Very sweet love story

Writing and narration are both very good. This should be a lifetime movie. I enjoyed the storyline and the ending though predictable was still very nice.
