When Hannah dares to love across the boundaries of tradition, will she lose everything?
Despite being raised in a traditional Old Order Amish family, seventeen-year-old Hannah Lapp desires to break with custom, forgo baptism into the faith, and marry outside the cloistered community. She’s been in love with Mennonite Paul Waddell for three years, and before returning to college for his senior year, Paul asks Hannah to be his wife. Hannah accepts, aware that her marriage will change her relationship with her family forever.
On the evening of their engagement, tragedy strikes and in one unwelcome encounter, all that Hannah has known and believed is destroyed. As she finds herself entangled in questions that the Old Ways of her people cannot answer, Hannah faces the possibility of losing her place in her family, in her community– and in the heart of the man she loves.
When the Heart Cries is book one in the Sisters of the Quilt series.
This was a charming book set in a rural Amish community. The characters were incredible. I felt like I was transported to this Amish community right along with her characters.
The author went to a lot of trouble to make sure that everything was exactly perfect and she accomplished her feat.
This book was so refreshing. You find too many romance novels nowadays that rely too heavily on sex. It was so nice to enjoy a romance for the story and characters instead.
