Enjoyable! 'Buried Secrets' - Harvest of Hope 2 - by Barbara Cameron
About the book:
Family secrets could get in the way of a second chance at love
After her husband dies, Rose longs to be near her family—especially her twin sister, Lillian—so she packs up her young son and leaves their life in Ohio to move back to Paradise, Pennsylvania.
Luke Miller is ready to settle down in Paradise. He soon forms a partnership with Rose to help farm her land. He finds that he’s enjoying the company of the quiet, modest widow and she may be just the woman he’s been waiting for. But is Rose hiding a secret beneath her reserved exterior—one that could keep her from having a future with Luke?
And Rose isn’t the only one concealing something. Luke has a secret of his own, and it could threaten their partnership—and their chance at love.
I really enjoyed this story about a sweet widow and her adorable son finding a second chance at happiness and love. Rose was a wonderful, caring person, still grieving the loss of her husband. Luke was an upstanding guy, very helpful, even in the kitchen! They both had a strong faith. They learned the value of truthfulness and not keeping secrets. There was quite a bit of humor in the story from Rose's son as he says and does things that are just so cute and funny. He was my favorite character. There's also some suspense as he gets into danger more than once. An interesting cardinal made an appearance at significant moments sometimes, very mysterious. A little bit of romance rounded out the story. This worked very well as a stand-alone; no need to read the series in order. I would highly recommend it if you like Amish stories.
I received a copy of this book from Gilead Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
