Meredith Stoltzfus is trying to piece her life back together, while in a hospital miles away, a young man is fighting for his life and remains in a coma. . . . Weeks away from the baby being born, Meredith has never been so scared. She aches for Luke and knows her baby will need his father. She’s nearly out of money; can she somehow manage to provide for herself and her baby—alone?

Never, never give up hope.

I have to admit, I’m fully entrenched in The Discovery series by Wanda Brunstetter. I feel like I know Meredith and Luke almost as well as my good friends. The writing flows and I’ve been sucked into this series.

Meredith is finally getting some backbone and it’s refreshing. I realize part of the Amish culture is to defer to the male of the household and Meredith’s situation does pose a challenge to this system. I liked how she’s having to deal with her issues and find solutions for herself. For that reason, I really enjoyed this book.

One thing that was a little meddlesome was Jonah. I like him. I do. But it seemed almost too convenient for him to appear when he does. I like the back story between him and Meredith and could see where that story arc might go. At the same time, I didn’t want it to. I’m a softie for Luke.

There are still a lot of characters in this series and I can see where Ms Brunstetter could make them all off-shoot stories. I’d be interested in finding out what happens with Laurie.

All in all, this is a good book and has some definite twists and turns I didn’t see coming. Grab it for a nice afternoon read.
