Welcome back to Wells Landing, Oklahoma, the tranquil Amish community where still waters run deep and a brave young woman sets out to discover her faith, her family, and herself…
Lorie Kauffman is grief-stricken when her father passes away unexpectedly. But her heartache quickly turns to bewilderment when she discovers he’d been leading two lives—one of simplicity and hard work in Wells Landing, and one fraught with painful ordeals in Tulsa. As she starts digging into her family’s past, Lorie finds herself torn between the Amish world and the Englisch world—and she’s no longer certain where she belongs…
Lorie knows that if she leaves Wells Landing, she may never be able to return. But what if her destiny lies in the outside world—the world her father knew so well? Change is never easy, but with a bit of courage and the help of a handsome and kind-hearted Englischer, she just may find the peace, acceptance, and love she’s been longing for… (less)
Lorie's Heart (A Wells Landing Romance)
Perhaps if I had read any of the other books by this author, I might have been prepared for this book. Without doing so I have no clue whether or not this author writes her other books about breaking ones faith for love. A very romantic notion.
I felt that this book was written more for the YA market and I have to wonder if that is the author's style or if this is in truth, a fact.
The characters seemed really immature (even for an Amish person) and the constant introspection, lying and sneaking around by Lorie got a little annoying after a while. It led to me skimming a lot of this novel just to see what happened to her father. And that was a big let down. Perhaps the author should have allowed us more time with Lorie's other Grandmother and other relatives?
I don't know -everything just cam to easily to Lorie and I would have been as unhappy if this had been a non-Amish romance.
