Her Secret {Shelley Shepard Gray}

her secret shelley shepard gray
After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she’s getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky…if only she wasn’t too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone—even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she'll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.

For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called “The Recluse” confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he's misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God’s gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there’s always more to someone than meets the eye.

Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.

My Thoughts:
I have immediately fallen in love with this new series from my favorite Amish author. As soon as we began meeting the members of the Hilty family, I knew I was hooked.

Hannah and her family have moved to Hart County to run from the stalker terrorizing Hannah's life. Or have they? Hannah feels completely responsible for her family's misery, and my heart went out to her. She is terrified to go outside and finds herself trapped in her house with a family who acts like they don't like her at all.

Hannah finally finds a friend in Isaac Troyer, and this story really took off for me. I loved watching Hannah and Isaac become friends and the way he included her in all the activities of Hart County. As Hannah's secret begins to be revealed to her new friends, her family's secrets soon become known to Hannas as well. Hannah realizes things may not have been exactly as she believes and her entire world changes.

I found this book very entertaining and a great start to this new series. I am looking forward to the remainder of this series and encourage you to pick it up as well if you enjoy Amish Fiction.
