The Hope of Refuge

by Cindy Woodsmall

I really enjoy reading books about the Amish culture. Even though this is a work of fiction it still gives the reader an idea about how the Amish live.
In this book Cindy Woodsmall writes about a young mom, Cara, and her daughter, Lori. Cara was raised in foster care since she was about 8 and her mother died in a car accident Cara is scared because she is running from a stalker. She remembers when she was a young girl, before her mom passed away, her mom took her to visit some Amish friends. She decides to take her daughter to the Amish where she hopes someone will help them. Little does she know how that decision will change their lives forever.
Ephraim is a young Amish man, who has yet to find a wife. He remembers Cara from when she was a girl and came to visit. He wants to help her reconnect with her Amish relatives, but the tight knit community is very upset that Ephraim is letting the girl and her daughter stay in his home.
Are Ephraim and Cara falling in love? If so, will he leave the Amish faith in order to marry her? Will she convert to the faith with all of the strange customs? To answer these questions you will just have to read the book for yourself. I highly recommend this good, clean read! Here is what ABC news has to say, ABC . Purchase your copy today at Random House.
