    • Abstract:
      Summary: "In the wake of his estranged wife's murder, widower Michael Forster returns to the Amish community he'd left as a teen. He wants a fresh start for himself and his daughter, Allie, away from those who still believe he's guilty. In River Haven, a quieter life seems possible. If only Allie's Amish schoolteacher, Catherine Brandt, was easier to ignore. A problem solver by nature, Cathy can tell Allie's withdrawn demeanor isn't due to shyness. But getting through to Allie also means breaching her father's hardened defenses. What starts as persistence soon grows into an attraction neither Cathy nor Michael saw coming. When the past suddenly threatens both his daughter and the woman he loves, Michael must risk everything to save them"

LJ Reviews 2019 June

Suspected of but not charged with the murder of his estranged Englischer wife, Diana, Michael Forster takes his young daughter, Allie, and leaves Harrisburg, PA, to return to the Amish community where he was born, hoping for a better life for both of them. For Michael, Allie's happiness is key, and when she bonds with kind, optimistic teacher Cathy Brandt, Michael can't help but be attracted to her, as well. But not everyone welcomes them back, including some of Diana's Englischer high school friends. Then a private investigator shows up, and the Harrisburg police take a renewed interest in the case. Michael knows he'll never be free of suspicion until the real killer is caught—a killer who might just be targeting everyone he loves in order to keep that secret safe. VERDICT Caring, decency, and family solidarity underpin this frightening but ultimately heartwarming tale of hate, retribution, and evil that is made all the more chilling by the peaceful, nonviolent setting. Perry (Shattered Silence) divides her time between rural Pennsylvania and South Carolina.
