Review: Shielding the Amish Witness by Mary Alford

This story was almost non-stop action. It seemed as if the bad guy was unstoppable and just kept coming at Eli and Faith the entire time. He was a scary villain.

Faith had an Amish background but had lived many years in the English world when her father and mother left their community. I liked that she had been friends with Eli when they were younger. It helped their connection form quickly in this book.

Eli was haunted by the death of his wife and unborn child. He carried so much guilt and sadness around because he had been unable to keep them safe. I loved seeing him get a second chance at love with Faith.

This high-action novel was full of dangerous situations, the beginnings of a romance, and a villain who was determined to kill anyone who got in his way.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Seeking refuge in Amish country

puts everyone she loves in danger.

On the run after discovering her brother-in-law was behind her husband’s murder, Faith Cooper can think of only one safe place—her Amish grandmother’s home. But when danger follows Faith to the quiet Amish community, her childhood friend Eli Shetler is her only protection. And their survival depends on outlasting a relentless killer…one who has nothing left to lose.

Mary Alford grew up in a small Texas town famous for, well not much of anything really. Being the baby of the family and quite a bit younger than her two brothers and her sister, Mary had plenty of time to entertain herself. Making up stories seemed to come naturally to her.

As a teen, Mary discovered Phyllis Whitney and Victoria Holt and knew instinctively that was what she wanted to do with her over-active imagination.
