Summary
In a struggling Amish settlement on the harsh Colorado plain in 1914, Abbie Weaver fights for the life of the church she cherishes. But the loss the community feels most deeply is the lack of a minister. Visiting bishops have stopped coming--a mystery that demands explanation. Abbie's friend Willem is fiercely determined, and although Abbie loves Willem, his choices put a wedge between them. When Abbie discovers the root of the unspoken spiritual divide that runs through the settlement, she finds herself questioning her own father's faith. Will a collision of loves and values cost her Willem forever?

Review
As an Amish settlement struggles to survive on the stark Colorado plain, Abbie Weaver stubbornly refuses to leave even as friends return east. It's not life in the wild that disturbs Abbie, it's the lack of spiritual guidance. But when Abbie falls for a man who's determined to leave the church, she must decide whether to stay strong in her faith and lose the one she loves, or go with him and sever her connection to God. VERDICT In this series opener, Newport ("Hidden Falls" series) introduces a little-known slice of Amish history in the early days of the Western frontier. Her characters are humanely formed, and her depiction of their struggles to survive in a harsh environment is very convincing. Recommended for fans of Wanda E. Brunstetter and those interested in Amish history and historical romances.
