Leah doesn’t understand the Amish customs and beliefs, but she still looks forward to Rebekah’s teenaged sister and brother’s visits. Romantic sparks fly between Leah and brother Ethan. Then a mysterious “night nurse” whom only Leah and Rebekah can see appears to console the girls. Leah will need the support of all her friends when the doctor finally makes his diagnosis.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 2/3/2014

    " A book with serious themes- cancer, death, love, a little spirituality and the Amish community. "

    " I like the story, but the writing is annoying at time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/27/2014

    " I don't remember the details from this novel but, it really broke my heart to read it. All the novels of Lurlene McDaniel deal with somesort of cancer or other disease and this one is no different. I absolutely love the almost forbidden romance between a modern age girl and an Omish boy, brought together for their illnesses, well, the Omish boy's sister's illness. It really is hard to read the last book but, it really is great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita | 1/14/2014

    " I did not know what to expect from this book - boy was I surprised! What a heartwarming story - it caught me right from the start and kept me riveted throughout the trilogy. It could easily have been one book, since the story is really a continuation throughout - I really do not know why the author broke it up into 3 separate parts. Anyway, any story involving the Amish always intrigues me, and this one was no exception. The relationship between the Amish and the English in general is fascinating, but, of course, it was the love story that really got to me. I kept pulling for the relationship to work, even though their worlds were so far apart. This was a beautifully written story that brought tears to my eyes quite often. I did not want it to end - I wish there was a sequel! This author writes primarily for younger readers, but I found the theme to be universal - faith will get you through anything. Even if you do not believe in guardian angels, this story will have you second guessing. A quick, enjoyable, interesting book that I highly recommend for any age. "

    " I read this some years ago and i loved all three books. it was about the amish and how there way of life is so much diffrent than ours but also how your culture can affect your relationship. "
