The Return - A Book Review
I have always been a huge fan of historical fiction and this book is inspired by true events. There is a section in the back of the book that includes what's true about the story. I always love when and Author includes these details! Not only is this an enjoyable fiction read you will learn a lot while reading it.
The story is set in Pennsylvania in the 1700's, pre-revolution. Betsy Zook never questioned her family's rigid expectations nor those of devoted Hans-but then she never had to. Not until the night she's taken captive in a surprise Indian raid. Facing brutality and hardship, Betsy finds herself torn between her pious upbringing and the feeling she's developing for a native man who encourages her to see God in all circumstances.
Greatly anguished by Betsy's captivity, Hans turns to Tessa Bauer for comfort. She responds eagerly, overlooking troubling signs of Han's hunger for revenge. But if Betsy is ever restored to the Amish, will things between Hans and Tessa have gone too far?
Even though this is book three of this series it makes a great stand alone book. You will not want to put it down. It will grab you from the first page and keep you enthralled all the way to the end. There is lots of adventure and a little suspense. The romance is sweet and pure. Such a fulfilling book!
