Love Bears All Things by Beth Wiseman

Love Bears All Things (Amish Secrets, #2)
ISBN: 9780529118721
Publisher's Synopsis:
Charlo­tte Dolinsky needs time to recover after breaking up with her boyfriend, Ryan. But when a surprise visitor shows up on her doorstep in Texas, she’s forced to put aside her own worries to help her Amish friends in Lancaster County. Soon she is entangled in a web of deception—and this time, she isn’t the only one keeping secrets.

Daniel Byler struggles each day in his Amish community to heal from his fiancée’s betrayal. When he discovers that a member of his family is in danger of being shunned, his pain turns to fear. His only way to help is by partnering with Charlo­tte, a woman he barely knows who has already deceived them all before.

Charlo­tte begins building a friendship with Daniel that she’ll need to lean on when more surprises surface from her past and she once again finds herself torn between two worlds. Will Charlotte’s friends in the Amish community be able to show her the power of redemption and lead her home? And can she help young Jacob realize that God offers second chances at happiness when she isn’t even sure herself?

"I will not cry. I will not cry. I will not cry."
MrsK's Review:
Charlotte's "visions" are getting more haunting. Unsure of what these images are trying to tell her, Charlotte knows that she is loosing grip on daily life. Could the stress of a break-up and then her brother's suicide be the "trigger" that is setting off these visions, the headaches, and the chest pains?

When Jacob leaves Lancaster County and arrives at Charlotte's doorstep, her communication with Hannah is rekindled. A friendship will always be a vehicle towards inner strength, that is if Charlotte will accept the invite to come and re-start her life in Lancaster. Is it possible to be forgiven?

Daniel is a man of strong principles. When Charlotte first came to Lancaster in search of answers, Daniel like Hannah wanted to help her. Once her deception became apparent, he knew she was not someone to trust. With her return, others might be willing to forgive but for him, her deception was his reason to stand convicted against her entering his life. If getting her brother's house readied for sale would get her further from Lancaster, then he would do what he could.

Shame, will cause much hurt. For Charlotte shame will bring an avenue for healing. For Jacob, shame will bring choices that could lead him home. And for Daniel, shame will open a door for discovering forgiveness and love.

"Never say never..."
MrsK
"Home. Charlotte wondered where her home was going to be."
Another great story in the series!
