Litfuse Review: Her Secret by:Shelley Shepard Gray
About the Book:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray begins a new series—The Amish of Hart County—with this suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker.
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.
The love of a new series goes without saying especially if the author is Shelley Shepard Gray. She is phenomenal and she has many excellent books as well as fans that will back me up on that statement. The reason I think that she writes so well is that she leaves no stone unturned. You can see this in her latest, Her Secret. Her Secret is a little different. I can say now that the cover did not appeal to me but it did make me think for a split second that I was reading non fiction.
This story of Hannah Hilty and her family will scare the daylights out of you. Poor Hannah is now a petrified young girl afraid to turn a corner much less anything else. She has a stalker that is unwilling to give up so her family do what they can to make their little girl safe. Hannah has a lot going on with her as the reader learns more about her and the Troyer family will play a roll in their lives but how?
Great writing and it will leave you spellbound!
