This was such a good story! Miriam was so good at what she did, which was help people recuperate and do whatever therapy and exercises they needed to do. The way she responded not only to Matt, but also to his sister, showed that she had a good understanding of helping both the physical and emotional needs of her patients.
Matthew started out the novel with a lot of anger and self pity. The way he was behaving was actually very understandable due to the grief and guilt he was suffering from. But it was so nice to see when he began awakening from the stupor he had been in and started to actually work to heal as much as he could.
The emotions felt very authentic all throughout the story and this was a book that was hard to set down. It is part of a series, yet I had no trouble reading it as a stand alone novel.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Marta Perry realized she wanted to be a writer at age eight, when she read her first Nancy Drew novel. Most girls reached the end of that book wanting to be Nancy. Marta wanted to be the person who created the story.
Marta PerryThe dream lay hidden for years while she pursued other career goals, but eventually it re-surfaced, and she began to write, beginning with short children’s stories for Sunday school take-home papers. After seeing hundreds of her short stories published in a variety of magazines, Marta finally started work on the novel she’d always wanted to write. Fifty-some published novels later, she still feels the same excitement when she begins a new book.
A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania and her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots led Marta to the books she writes now about the Amish. The Pleasant Valley Amish series from Berkley Books are longer, more complex emotional stories with Amish main characters, while the Amish Suspense series from HQN Books are more adventure-filled books set in Pennsylvania Amish country. She also continues to write for Love Inspired Books.
Marta lives with her husband in a century-old farmhouse in the Pennsylvania countryside, but spends winters at their vacation home in South Carolina. When she’s not writing, she’s active in the life of her church and enjoys traveling and spending time with her three children and six beautiful grandchildren.
