A Wells Landing Romance book 5
by Amy Lillard
In Wells Landing, Oklahoma’s warm and welcoming Amish community, there’s always hope for a new beginning—and a second chance…
Five tumultuous years have changed Titus Lambert in every way. Back then, Titus was preparing to marry his longtime sweetheart, Mandy Yoder. Then came the unthinkable—a tragic car wreck that left Titus serving time for vehicular manslaughter.
Titus isn’t sure he belongs in this peaceful place anymore, but he must make amends. When he goes to visit the Kings, whose son, Alvin, died that terrible night, he’s shocked to see that their farm has fallen into disrepair. Alvin’s sister, Abbie, resents Titus’s reappearance, but there’s no denying she needs his help. Honest toil—and their evolving friendship—slowly help his soul to heal. But with his feelings for Mandy still strong, Titus must choose between two very different futures, and find the strength and faith to claim the surprising gift of a fresh start.
Can he really come home again?
This Book received a 4 Bark rating.
Titus Returns not only took on some tough stuff, like grief and depression, but it also was a good example of how the Amish really are just people like everyone else. They don't have some pie-in-the-sky faith that keeps life's problems and pain at bay and that allows them to magically forgive everything. They struggle through heartache like the English do, sometimes falling back on prayer and sometimes less effective means. Titus Returns was a little more serious in tone but it was a book that I could hardly put down. I really wanted to know what would happen next. Would Mandy make the right decision, could Abbie let go of her pain, could Titus forge through his problems?
Titus Returns is another great story in an interesting and very good series. I look forward to Amy Lillard's next trip to Wells Landing...
