New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray begins a new series -- The Amish of Hart County -- with this suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who moves to a new town to escape a threatening stalker.
After a stalker goes too far, Hannah Hilty and her family are forced to leave the Amish community where she grew up. Now they're getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky. But Hannah has become afraid of trusting anyone -- even Isaac Troyer, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she'll ever return to the easygoing woman she once was.
For Isaac, the beautiful girl he teasingly called "The Recluse" confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he's misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God's gifts and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there's always more to someone than meets the eye.
Compelling. Chilling. Inspiring.
Shelley Shepard Gray knows how to dig deep into the hearts of her characters, exposing weaknesses and strengths in equal measure as she forces them along a complex path of self-discovery.
Her Secret reveals the raw grittiness of every day people. Yes, this is an Amish story -- but not the typical kind. The Hilty family is as naturally dysfunctional as any Englisch equivalent. Each family member faces common challenges in unique ways. None of them do it perfectly. There were times I wanted to box ears and rattle teeth. And just as often I wanted to hug them tight and whisper comforting platitudes. It's the kind of story that seeps into your bones until you become a part of it.
Thriller-style suspense tempered by tender romance promises a page-turner of a read.
