“This promising series debut from Fuller is edgier than most Amish novels, dealing
with
difficult
and dark issues and featuring well-drawn characters who are tougher
than
the
usual gentle souls found in this genre. Recommended for Amish fiction fans
who
might
like a different flavor.”

“Sadie and Aden's love is both sweet and hard-won, and Aden's patience is touching
as he wrestles not only with Sadie's dilemma, but his own abusive past. Birch Creek
is weighed down by the Troyer family's dark secrets, and readers will be interested
to see how secondary characters' lives unfold as the series continues.”
