About the book . . . 

Naomi knows she should be excited about her upcoming wedding but she remains unmoved. Not only are her feelings for her fiance lackluster but she believes he may see her more as a servant than a partner. And he’s so controlling. Is it too late to back out of the marriage? While praying for God’s guidance, Naomi takes a break from her duties as a quilter and travels with her grandmother to Pinecraft, Florida. Along the way Naomi finds herself becoming attracted to Nick, their Englisch driver and friend, and the two begin to fall in love. The journey soon becomes one in which Naomi explores her most secret dream for love. But can she veer off the “safe” path she’d envisioned for her life to marry Nick?

Reader Review . . . 

Naomi has mixed feelings regarding her upcoming marriage to John.  His controlling ways have her backing away from the relationship.  When her grandmother needs a traveling companion to Florida, Naomi volunteers to go along, but she never planned on a mutual attraction developing between her and their Englisch driver.

Barbara Cameron has written an Amish fiction novel with a new twist:  domestic abuse.  As much as we would like to believe that they live in an idyllic paradise, they have problems just as everyone else does.  This is a topic that needs to be addressed in general Christian fiction more often, so finding it in this genre was definitely a breath of fresh air.  It was handled sensitively, giving the reader real information in a fictional format.  Very nicely done.  I will be looking for Ms. Cameron's novels at my local bookstore.
