Susan Wiggs writes about family, community, love, and tackles real life issues in the process.

Years earlier, Caleb had left the Amish way of life to attend community college and chase his dreams. He works hard on his farm and enjoys life with his niece and nephew and seldom thinks about his life outside of the

This book is just beautiful and inspirational and sad. Caleb lives in a small, strict Amish community in Middle Grove. He lives with his father, Hannah, his niece and Jonah, his nephew. The author often has Caleb tell about some great tragedy in the first several chapters and that keep me reading. Asa, Caleb's father was abusive. Caleb's mom left when him and his brother, John where very young. His brother and sister-in-law died, which is why Hannah and Jonah liv

I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway, and I'm so glad I did.

Caleb Stolz and Dr. Reese Powell meet when she is a resident and his nephew has a life-changing accident. What follows is an intricately woven story about an Amish family and Reese's long-planned career path to follow her parents into pediatric surgery and working in their practice. Their two worlds collide, but where do they go from here?

No spoilers here, but I think this is one of Wiggs' best.
I love Susan Wigg's books and this was no exception. Her characters are so realistic I feel like I know them all. Caleb and Reese are from two very different lives- his family is Amish, Reese is a doctor who's parents are high powered physicians who have plans for her life. When a terrible accident occurs while she is working, Caleb and Reese's lives are thrown together. This one kept me turning the pages as fast as I could to see where Wiggs was taking me.

I really enjoyed this novel. It was just what I needed. I so loved the niece and nephew and my heart just ached for them. I only had to knock it down a point because I just felt that ending was rushed. I guess I just wished it was a couple hundred pages longer. I sometimes think authors just start a wonderful book and they follow where the story takes them, then they look at the page count and go, "Oh shite! I gotta cut this short!!!" That is exactly what I felt with this novel. I don't mind lon ...more

I will preface this by saying Susan Wiggs is one of my favorite authors. I have many.

Good story about Amish and English and how their worlds combine. Caleb is caring for his niece and nephew after their parents were murdered. His brother requests they be brought up 'plain'. Caleb was wanting to stay in the English world, but did as his brother requested.

Caleb's nephew has a horrific accident and is taken to a hospital to save his life. Enter lovely woman doctor (Reese) who helps care for the nep

I was sucked into this story from page 1.
Reese, a 4th year medical student, and Caleb, an Amish farmer, meet in the ER when Caleb's nephew becomes the victim of a catastrophic accident. They are both keenly aware that any kind of relationship between them is impossible given their lifestyles and commitments. That awareness doesn't stop their budding attraction. The story becomes very emotional as the similarities and differences of their lives are revealed. I had a hard time putting this book d

I was so pleased to receive this advance copy. A fascinating, well-written book. (As are all her books). I started reading it on Friday evening and woke up at 3:00 a.m. to finish -- it was that good.
The storyline is well-crafted by itself, and it gives a fascinating inside look at the difficulty of certain Amish individuals being forced to reconcile their beliefs against the advantages of embracing some of "English" technology advantages. She creates characters that live and breath on the page.
