I highly recommend An Honest Love. This title is a gripping tale of love and emotion. Definite page turner, as you feel the emotions felt by the characters and will leave you wanting more.
Fuller did a phenomenal job writing this tale, educating you on the Amish Community as well as opening with a magnificent plot.
