On My Nightstand - Arms of Love by Kelly Long
Lena Yoder and Adam Wyse knew they were meant for each other, but life interferes with their plans. The Amish face constant pressure from both the Patriots and the Tories. Adam is torn between honoring his pacifist Amish roots and fighting for freedom.
When Adam distances himself from his true love, she is forced to seek help from his older brother, Isaac. The impossibilities of her situation weigh heavily upon her, and she knows only God can turn it around.
This story started off at a slow pace, and I almost gave up on it. Oh, but I'm so glad I hung in there. The character development, especially of Adam Wyse, was superlative and the ending satisfying.
I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads. Enjoy!
