This is the second book in the Kauffman Amis Bakery Series. I just found out their is going to be a fourth book! Before I begine I have to tell you some words in this book is in Pennsylvania Dutch, the Amish language. (a German dialect) It has words like wife, twins, wonderful and good. Also, in all of the books they have recipes, for numerous desserts. This is also in the first book. You can learn things like how to make pound cake, coconut chews, apple ring fritters and funny cake pie. I thought that was interesting to add to a book. Alright, well this book takes the focus off of Rebecca and her neices. It focuses on Sarah Troyer a widow who is left alone to give birth to twins. During the story she finds out some very unsettling details about her dead husband Peter's past. When a stranger named Luke shows up to the little town of Bird-In-Hand her world is turned upside down and shes left questioning if she really knew her husband at all. I must say this is a love story! I found it a little annoying how many times the two people who are supposed to confess their love for eachother didnt! We only find out at the last few pages what happens between the two charectors. The whole book is filled with suspense and twists and turns that I dont want to give away because that would be a spoiler! You know this book is great because I was upset when it ended. I wanted to find out more about the charectors and their lifes after this book, Im interested to see how the next book plays out. The whole time i was reading this book, I was feeling so upset thinking about how its possible to lose your husband, give birth to twins, and find out troubling information about the person you thought you could trust with your life. This book definitly brings out emotions in you. Overall I would read this series! Mostly because its not about just one person. Its about a whole family's points of view.
