  Library Journal Review

Caleb Stoltz has never been baptized into the Amish church; but he lives an Amish lifestyle because he promised to raise his orphaned 16-year-old niece and 11-year-old nephew in the faith. When Jonah loses an arm in a shredder in a terrible accident, Caleb Caleb chooses between allowing his nephew to bleed to death and being airlifted to Philadelphia, where Caleb encounters and is attracted to medical student Reese Powell, who is on rotation in the emergency room. Adding to Caleb's problems is the disapproval of his community toward Jonah's robotic arm, which is viewed as "too modern." Reese also has her own troubles as she fights her parents' desire for her to become a pediatric surgeon and must select a residency placement. Verdict While there may be some crossover appeal to readers of inspirational Amish fiction, Wiggs's latest novel does not paint an idealized portrait of the Amish community. Instead, it explores family relationships, including abuse and unwed pregnancies, cultural differences, and the need to live one's own life. Recommended for readers of contemporary romance.-Margaret Bentley, Shiawassee Dist. Lib., Owosso, MI © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

  Booklist Review

The moment Caleb Stoltz shows up in the emergency room of the Philadelphia hospital where she's working as a medical student, Reese Powell knows there is something different about him. Reese is instantly impressed by the fact that Caleb ignored the religious objections of others in his Amish community to rush his young nephew Jonah, who had been involved in a life-threatening farm accident, to the hospital. Now, watching Caleb offer the unconditional love and support Jonah needs as he deals with the changes in his life forces Reese to rethink some of the decisions she's making about her own future. A future Reese is beginning to think more and more may be linked to Caleb. From the book's gut-wrenching opening to its superbly satisfying conclusion, readers will once again find themselves under best-selling, RITA award-winning Wiggs' (Map of the Heart, 2017) literary spell as she gracefully spins easily relatable yet realistically complex characters and an evocatively written and emotionally charged plot into pure literary gold.--Charles, John Copyright 2018 Booklist
