The first book of The Amish of Summer Grove series is one of the most intriguing ones I’ve read of hers. Arianna Brenneman is the twin of Abram and one of the ten children of Isaac and Lovina. The boy she hoped to marry, Quill, ran off with her best friend, Frieda. She is finally moving on and has a new beau, Rudy, when Quill reappears.
Quill appears to be linked to the night crawler, a person who sneaks in and assists the Amish who wish to leave the community. However, there are more pressing secrets that come to light that changes everything Arianna believes.
This novel does deviate somewhat from her usual ones in that it is focused more on the family and less on the Amish community. I enjoyed Ties that Bind and I iam now sitting on pins and needles waiting for her to release book two.
I received this book free from Water Brook Publishers for an honest review.
