Summer of Secrets...

A novel by Charlotte Hubbard

Publisher's Note: In the bestselling tradition of Beverly Lewis and Jan Karon, Hubbard presents a beautifully drawn new series, which follows the charming residents of Willow Ridge and the conflicts involving the old Amish ways in a modern world, and the temptations of leaving this plain heritage behind. Original.


Mandi's Review: Summer of Secrets by Charlotte Hubbard is a refreshing change from your ordinary romance. Set in a quaint Amish community in Missouri, Rachel Lantz is looking forward to her new life and marriage with Micah, her high school sweetheart. However, the sturdy foundation on which she has built her life begins to fall apart when a stranger unexpectedly turns up in town claiming to be Rachel's long-lost sister. The author has done a wonderful job creating a story based around strong family values and Christian morals. The characters are very well-rounded, and I loved Rachel's strength and courage as she faces her new trials. At times the plot moved a little slow, but this is a book I would recommend to anyone, and I'll definitely look forward to reading more by this author.  I give Summer of Secrets 4 out of 5 stars and congratulate Hubbard on a job well done.
