with familiar characters from book one so if you love series books make sure you read WHERE SECRETS SLEEP first Author Marta Perry is especially good at explaining all the characters and their relationship so even if it has been a while since you read book one you ll easily slip back into this worldWe met Amish spinster Sarah Bitler in WHERE SECRETS SLEEP as the co owner of the uilt shop in Blackburn House Near thirty Sarah has resigned herself to being deemed a maidal and focuses on her business instead of worrying about never having a family of her own Having been once in love with her childhood friend Aaron King who married someone else Sarah is grateful for the business she shares with Allison Standish An Amish woman without a man or a family to care for in her community can face difficulty It s harder to provide for yourself when being Amish relies on the family unityWhen Sarah witnesses a fire at an elderly neighbor s property that is suspected to have been started by an

corporation Aaron is a volunteer firefighter along with his father and brother He is concerned with Sarah s involvement as a witness When unexplained events threaten Sarah and their community will Aaron discover he s smitten with the strong woman Sarah has become or fear suspicions against him will harm her reputationI have such a good time reading Marta Perry s Amish stories She brings these communities to life and I learn something new about the Amish each time I read one of her books I really enjoy how the Englisch and the Amish work together respectfully both professionally and personally Their differences can cause obstacles so I enjoy reading how the Amish keep their faith strong within constant temptationAaron and Sarah are a sweet couple having been friends as children and rediscover each other as adults after the death of Aaron s first wife Their families see the perfection of their union before Sarah or Aaron figure out their feelings for one another so it s fun to witness the matchmaking maneuvers the grandmothers and friends put to taskThere are several suspense plotlines running through the book that keep the community frantically trying to resolve them Allison and Sarah become amateur sleuths to help an elderly neighbor They also plan a uilt show and the uilt history contained within this plot should be fun for any uilter I just happened to go to a uilt show the weekend I was reading this book so I found this part of the story especially appealing and authenticMarta Perry creates sweet love stories within the realism of the world we live in while incorporating a simpler way of life It s a great combination where faith is in the background but doesn t overwhelm the story Common sense and kindness prevails when the characters are faced with adversity but it is never so sweet that it becomes unrealistic If you ve read Amish stories before and have been disappointed I think you ll find this author s style refreshingMarta Perry writes a modern story that s not focused on religion as much as it is motivated by the lifestyle of all who live a country life Ms Perry s talent creates a relatable story for those who might not be familiar with the Amish way of life I enjoy the situations that demand that the Amish walk a fine line between their beliefs and what the Englisch expect them to do to stay within the law or to operate their business It s a cultural shock that many of us might not understand prior to reading a well written novel by Marta Perry that focuses on these sensibilities Ms Perry has a uniue talent for keeping it real while being respectful of the people she writes about These feel good stories with a bit of suspense are perfect escapism that s wholesome and intriguing at the same timeReview by Dorine courtesy
