About the Book:

Anna must find the courage to tell Lukas the truth. Will he find the courage to forgive her?
Anna was one betrayed by someone she loved deeply. In an attempt to never be hurt again, she and her mother relocated to Middlefield, Ohio. It was the ideal place for Anna’s broken heart to mend. In Middlefield, Anna withdrew from risk, placing all her attention on managing the new gift shop she and her mom bought.
When Lukas introuces himself, Anna can’t resist her attraction to him. Though she finds herself falling in love, she’s hiding a piece of her past in fear that their future will be destroyed if she tells him the truth.
But love can’t be built on lies and the past comes rushing back to Anna in an irreversible way. Now Lukas must decide how he will react to Anna’s betrayal. As they cling to their belief in an honest love, they realize it’s a path they must walk together even as it leads to unexpected places.

My Review:
Back to my favorite kind of story! Kathleen Fuller’s An Honest Love, is book 2 in her Hearts of Middlefield series and I loved it every bit as much as book 1, A Man of His Word. Tender and sweet, loving and filled with God and humor, this story reaches out to you from the very beginning.

One of the many thing I loved about this particular story is, not only do we get glimpses of characters from book 1 mixed with new fresh ones, Kathleen tells both Anna and Lukas’ story AND also young Elisabeth and Aaron’s story. Kathleen does this,however, in a way that keeps the reader surrounded by these wonderful characters without being jumpy or confusing. When an author can write like that, they are truly seasoned with God’s gift. 

Woven between the lines, once again, is a wonderful message of forgiveness and leaning on God and His mercy. Added to everything is a dash of secrets and plenty of simpleness that grips my heart and makes me yearn for the quiet, peaceful lifestyle of simple things filled with my faith and God, just like the Amish. 

Highest praises, again, to Kathleen Fuller for this 5 star book. I can’t wait until the release of A Hand to Hold, book 3, releasing in September 2010!
