Can two young people survive the suspicions of their friends and neighbors when tragedy strikes a close-knit Amish community?

Perry Borntrager had been missing for months from the quiet Amish community of Crittenden, Kentucky, when his body is discovered at the bottom of an abandoned well. The first death from mysterious circumstances in more than two decades brings the scrutiny of the outside world: A police detective arrives to help the local sheriff with the investigation. His questioning begins with Lydia Plank, Perry’s former girlfriend, and Perry’s best friend, the Englischer Walker Anderson.

Lydia and Walker know they didn’t have anything to do with Perry’s death, but they both hold secrets about his final days. Do they dare open up about the kind of man Perry had become? In the oppressive shadow of these dark times, they discover strength in a most unlikely companionship: one that offers solace, understanding, and the promise of something more.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 2/18/2014

    " Enjoyed this book. Biggest complaint is that it didn't resolve enough in book one (yeah I knew there were two other books in the series...but still I thought we'd know more about what happened to Perry by the end). Still enjoyed the other side stories (main ones I guess) between the Englisher and Amish people. "

    " This book just didn't flow for me. The ending was disappointing. It was abrupt. On the other hand, the idea behind the storyline was good. Murder in a small town and an Amish man murdered to boot. A "mixed" couple! I'm more anxious to see what happens with them than the murder. "

    " I have read every book Shelley Shepard Gray has written, so I was so excited for this one. I ended up really liking this book too, although it is not my favorite of hers. I love reading books written about Kentucky since I live there. I really enjoyed the characters and how the reader felt like they lived right in the small town. Really glad the next one comes out so soon since the book really leaves you hanging even with the bonus material my book included! "

    " I thought it was pretty good. I was disappointed with how little the secrets really were with Lydia and Walker but perhaps I will discover there are more in the next two books. "
