Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. But as destiny would have it, she has fallen in love with an Amish man.
Now she’s 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child’s Amish father—Matthew Lapp—will do the right thing and marry her. She knows Matthew plans to leave his Colorado settlement for a life in the Englisch world. But that plan never included a baby.
When Matthew walks away from her and their unborn child, she has nowhere to turn. Her unlikely friendship with Levi offers some comfort—yet they have so little in common. This wasn’t the plan she had for her life, and she has never felt so alone. She doesn’t want to be pregnant. Doesn’t want to be Amish. Doesn’t want to trust God.
God has plans beyond what her mind can imagine . . . loving plans to show a lost young woman that His love never fails but endures forever.

This is Beth Wiseman's third book in the Land of Canaan series. I was pulled in from the very first page. I absolutely could not put this book down. I fell in love with sweet Danielle and Levi. I was so happy for them and the new family that they made together. Levi helps Danielle to change her life for the better. I really loved to see how Danielle comes to know the Lord in this book. It was such a blessing to read when Danielle starts praying. It was truly a very heart-warming story; something we all desperately need in this dark world. You will love to read this story about an Amish boy who leaves his Amish life and family and does what is right! You are really going to love the ending!
Beth has another book coming out in April of 2013 called The House that Love Built and I just can't wait for it! She is a great author!
