Jilted by her fiancé, Amanda Pearson gives up on romance and turns to her Quaker faith for reassurance. She becomes determined to follow the Rev. and Mrs. Spalding into the western wilderness to minister to the Nez Percé Indians.
But a three-thousand-mile journey in 1837 is fraught with danger for anyone, and soon Amanda finds herself recovering from near death in a trapper's cabin. His Indian wife becomes Amanda's first convert--and friend. But the trapper and his intriguing half-Indian friend want nothing to do with Christians.
Buck McFadden has received nothing but pain from white men who claim Christ as their lord. He wants only to be left to his solitary life, but he can't seem to walk away from Amanda.
Amanda fears she'll never reach the mission in the Lapwai Valley. This journey has become life-changing for her--and those she meets--and the choices she must make are almost unbearable.
I adore Wanda Brunstetter. She’s super friendly and engaging on social media and just such a dear.
I’ve read most of Wanda’s Amish fiction and I’ve never been disappointed with her books. I had never read anything about Quakers before but I was excited to give this book a try. I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed the book. It was well written and I’d read more Anabaptist or Quaker fiction that is written by this author.
This is a beautiful love story that emerges from the ashes—actually, there are three love stories. Beautifully written and like real life—filled with heartache and joy.
I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it to friends of historical and Christian fiction
