Rebecca is an Amish woman whose pained past compels her to leave everything to become a nurse---abandoning her family and community. Caleb is an Amish man who is counting down the days until hunting season. At a crossroads in his own life, the excitement of hunting game is all he looks forward to. All the while he wonders what to do with the rest of his life. Even though he likes the Amish lifestyle, what good is an Amish man without faith in God?
An unexpected meeting pushes them together, and they embark with friends on a two-week-long wilderness wagon journey. Hardship tears down the flimsy walls of protection they've placed around their hearts, and as their friendship grows they open up to each other and eventually reveal their deepest secrets.
While on the outside they appear to be traditional Amish people, inside they both know they are anything but that. Will their secrets pull them together or draw them apart? And will their faith in God grow? There is a bridge to cross at the end of the journey. Will true love take them across?
After reading the first two books in this series, I knew that this book would be a good read. I wasn't disappointed in the least.
I enjoyed the story of faith throughout the book. Rebecca and Caleb were being called to be something other than what they were raised to be and were listening to that calling.
This book was full of adventure and went by very quickly.
One pet peeve: Caleb is described in the book as blonde and the cover has him with brown hair. I don't know why that bothers me, but it does!
This was a wonderful series and I highly recommend it.
