My last review for my friends at Litfuse Publicity Group is Shelley Shepard Gray's His Risk. We return again to the Amish of Hart Country and meet our main characters, Calvin Fisher and Alice Yoder. Calvin has fallen away from the Amish life and Alice remains as a nursery school teacher. Their paths cross when Calvin returns to the area because of family illness.
I enjoyed this book a lot, but found it grittier than most Amish novels I've read. The plot is quick moving and very topical and I would describe it more as a suspense novel, than a family or love story. I especially liked Calvin's story and found him a very interesting character that held my interest. If you're looking for a more "typical" Amish story this may not be for you, but if you are open to wider options, His Risk is well worth reading.
Again, my thanks to my friends at Litfuse for this opportunity and for many other reading opportunities I was able to share. For those that missed my post, Litfuse is closing its operation and this is the last book I will write about under their aegis. I'm very grateful to have been a part of the Litfuse reading community.
Though the weather doesn't feel especially spring-like the calendar is marching on and Passover begins tomorrow night. I will happily join my friends who are family and I am so looking forward to being all together, especially including little ones.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!
Please note: I was given a copy of His Risk in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts here are all mine.
