My Thoughts 

I loved returning to the town of Promise amongst the Amish and their way of life and visiting with old friends. This book is the story of Cassie Weaver, a baker and Martin Beiler a beekeeper that have been friends since childhood but separated for a while. Cassie has been sweet on Martin since they were younger and she's the only one that has truly understood him. 

This was such a sweet story and I loved how the author has made the lead character someone who is in the spectrum. I don't think I have read any stories where the lead has Autism and is being portrayed in a very positive way. I know she has written about this topic before in a previous book and she truly does a fantastic job.

Overall I really enjoyed this story, it was full of sweet romance and faith. If you enjoy reading Amish you need to ass Amy to your list of need to read authors!

I received a copy of this book for review. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
