Why did I read this?  Because I have read the other books in the series and enjoyed them.  In the interest of full disclosure Leslie is a friend of ours and has made Ruth Ann and I characters in another book.

This is the darkest Amish book I have ever read.  Zane, an Englischer who has convert to Amish is getting ready to marry Lila when her buggy is rear ended and she suffers major injuries.  Zane’s Army buddy Trevor comes to visit and wreaks havoc in one Amish family.  So to quote Warren Zevon, the story involves Lawyers, Guns and Money, minus the money.  Leslie makes the characters so compelling that you want to slap some of them, comfort some and learn from some.  The growth of a couple of the characters have gone through in this series is amazing.
