Faithful to Laura

Book description:  "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 is a Yankee who spent his teen years in an Amish home. Now an adult, he has to make a decision—go back to the life he knew as a child or join the church. 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.

New information about Sawyer’s past threatens the couple’s budding relationship. Both Laura and Sawyer will need to release the anger they’re storing in their hearts and forgive the people who’ve harmed them. As Laura struggles to trust God, will Sawyer do whatever it takes to remain faithful to Laura?"

My review:  This book started out very confusing.  Faithful to Laura is the second book in the Middlefield Family series, and I think if I read read the first book in this series it wouldn't have been so bad.  There are a lot of characters to keep straight, and if I knew their stories it would have made reading this book a lot easier.  I enjoyed the story, and there were several surprises that kept things interesting.  I wouldn't mind reading the first book in the series if I come across it, but I don't think I will make a special effort to find it.  I enjoyed Faithful to Laura, but it was one that I could take or leave.  I received a complimentary e-copy from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze Blogger program in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
