Synopsis:

The Epic Story of an Amish Community in Peril
Ravaged by disease, preyed upon by ruthless bandits, the Bender family's second year in Mexico has taken a grievous turn. Faced with impossible choices, the expatriate Amish discover, more than ever before, what it means to live by faith and not by sight
But it's Miriam who must make the hardest choice as her heart takes her on a new and dangerous course. Domingo. "He is gentle," his sister said, "until someone he loves is threatened." Is Miriam that someone?
"Cualnezqui," he often calls her--the Nahuatl word for Beautiful one. The chiseled native has proven himself a man of principle, grace and power, yet is he the pearl of great price for whom Miriam would sacrifice everything, or is he merely a friend? Tormented by conflicting emotions, she's haunted by vivid dreams: Dressed in the coarse cotton pants and shirt of a peasant, she stands on the precipice of a sun-washed ridge searching desperately for Domingo. Domingo the fierce. Domingo the protector.
Domingo the forbidden.

My thoughts:

As I read through this book I actually felt like I was part of the story. The book kept me interested from start to finish. I love learning about the Amish culture so I think that is another reason I took to this book. Plus, I have never hear of Amish living in Mexico, another culture I love learning about.

You will find that this story is very easy to follow and moved along at a nice pace. This is the second book in the series, which I did not get to read the first, however, I do not think it effected the story at all for me. I look forward to reading more in this series to see how the story will continue.

Disclosure: A book was provided in order for me to conduct this review. This is 100% my opinion.
