I want to read the first book in this series because I enjoyed this one so much. You don’t need to read them in order or at least I didn’t. Thomas and Dorcas were great characters. They were both a little wild in their teen years but then something happened to make them grow up. They reconnected in their mid twenties and learn they still have feelings for each other but they can’t do anything about it until they both resolve some problems. I really loved this book. I received a copy of this book from edelweiss for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a five out of five stars.
A second chance at love blooms in the quaint Amish community of Promise Glen, from national bestselling author Marta Perry.
Dorcas Beiler’s reckless teenage years are far behind her. She’s serious and responsible now, and the good people of Promise Glen trust her with the education of their children. But when her first love returns after years of exile from the community, her past comes rushing back. Thomas is the only one who knows her secret, and despite his careless charm and teasing manner, she refuses to let her guard down.
Thomas Fisher has plans. Plans to start a construction company and prove himself a success to all those who doubted him, and plans to find the woman he left behind. His chance comes when he lands the opportunity to rebuild the stable and shed at the community school. He won’t be paid for his time, but he’ll be able to showcase his abilities…and spend time with Dorcas.
Scenting love in the air, Dorcas’s young pupils make excuses to bring them together. As old feelings stir, Dorcas and Thomas wonder whether their first love might also be their last
