About the Book:

Five tumultuous years have changed Titus Lambert in every way. Back then, Titus was preparing to marry his longtime sweetheart, Mandy Yoder. Then came the unthinkable a tragic car wreck that left Titus serving time for vehicular manslaughter.
Titus isn t sure he belongs in this peaceful place anymore, but he must make amends. When he goes to visit the Kings, whose son, Alvin, died that terrible night, he s shocked to see that their farm has fallen into disrepair. Alvin s sister, Abbie, resents Titus s reappearance, but there s no denying she needs his help. Honest toil and their evolving friendship slowly help his soul to heal. But with his feelings for Mandy still strong, Titus must choose between two very different futures, and find the strength and faith to claim the surprising gift of a fresh start.
Praise for Amy Lillard
An inspirational story of romance, faith, and trust will appeal to fans of Wanda Brunstetter and Beverly Lewis.
Well, one thing is for sure life is never dull in Wells Landing. It has some many nooks and crannies to capture your attention and focus that you will never be bored. Here we are again drawn into Mrs. Amy Lillard's very touching series entitled, the Wells Landing series. In Oklahoma, there is much work to be done.
At every turn you will find ranchers, farmers, and even bankers. But what I love the most is the Amish folk. And don't ever think for a minute that they have a dull life based on the fact that their lives seem so utterly simple--because that is simply not true. And Amy Lillard can prove it.
Poor Titus! I felt such pity for this character. He had to serve time for a car wreck that took the life of someone in his community and after his time was served he decides to face his demons so to speak and it seemed hard for everyone involved.
Titus is trying to do whats right by everyone and fix past pain and soon finds himself with feelings he isn't sure how to deal with. Titus is learning that we all get a fresh, clean start and I think it is overwhelming to say the least.
His heart for all intents and purposes has belonged to Mandy Yoder all these years but then the promise of someone and something new creeps up and now he must choose.
Amy writes a feast for us to behold this holiday season. Titus Returns is a great coming home sort of novel. It is a quick read that I finished in one day and it will leave you longing for the next book in the series. Great read all the way around!
