Faithful To Laura
A Middlefield Family Novel book 2
by Kathleen Fuller
-From the Back Cover-
Laura's Amish faith requires her to forgive,
but she can only think of revenge.
Laura Stutzman leaves her Kentucky community for Middlefield, Ohio, with one purpose: to find Mark King, the man who pledged his love to her, then left. She can't move on with her life until he explains why.
Sawyer Thompson wasn't born Amish, but has lived in their community for years. Now he must commit to the Amish church or return to the Yankee world. Having suffered loss at a young age, he understands Laura's anger, but is determined to follow God's will and forgive. As their friendship grows, Laura begins to let her guard down.
But new information surfaces about Sawyer's past and threatens the couple's budding relationship. Both Laura and Sawyer will need to release the anger in their hearts and forgive the people who've harmed them. As Laura struggles to trust God, can Sawyer remain faithful to Laura?
I will say that I did have a hard time with the first 1/3 or so of the book. I figured out that Faithful To Laura is the 2nd book in a series, so I had no clue about the characters' back-stories etc. It was kind of like coming in halfway through the movie. I was able to figure out a lot of the story but I am going to be looking for the 1st book in the series so I can get myself caught up.
This book is all about forgiveness and not holding onto things. Most of the characters have one reason or another that they either have to forgive or be forgiven. When it came down to it, the characters each had figure out on their own to go to the One they should have in the first place.
This Book earned a 3.5 Bark rating.
This book was won in a giveaway and I am in no way obligated to review this book. I am doing so for my own and your enjoyment.
At times things seemed to moved a little fast, specifically relationships, but the story really was well written. I felt the betrayal, anger and pain with Laura and Sawyer. And I really wanted to see Mark King get his just deserts, and thus justice for Laura.
A good Amish story from a good author, and an important lesson for all of us, Yankee (Englischer) and Amish alike.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives Faithful To Laura a 3.5 Bark rating.
