Faith faces an impossible situation: Should she do the right thing and bring heartache to nearly everyone she knows or deny her true self and always wonder . . . what if?
Sixteen-year-old Faith has worked full-time in her parents’ restaurant since she finished eighth grade. She loves her Amish community—and the romantic attentions of her longtime friend, Gideon.
When her sister seems to be getting too friendly with Englischers, and her parents are in a buggy accident, Faith wants to escape into her dream of joining the church and getting married.
But then a local newspaper runs a story about a child named Adriana who was kidnapped fifteen years earlier, and everything Faith has held true comes into question.
Suddenly the community Faith has known her whole life seems unreal. Can she even trust her own family? And how will she ever find home again if she no longer belongs in the world she knows best?


My Thoughts!

I’ve recently found a new love for Amish reads, but this is unlike any other I’ve read! This is book 1 in the Amish Mercies series and offers well developed, complex characters. I love that it’s well written and draws readers in to the edge of their seats with unexpected twists and turns. This book isn’t as predictable as I expected it to be and the characters are unique and cheer worthy. Faith was my absolute favorite and I couldn’t help but to cheer for Gideon. Each character had a purpose and they were all unique. I love the dual story line that switched back and forth seamlessly.  Reid did an amazing job with this read and I highly recommend it to others!
