I have read all of Cindy's books & they are all good. This one kept you guessing until the end. I'm looking forward to her next book in this series. They are individual stories so you don't have to read them in order. She does a terrific job telling the story as well as giving us good facts about the Amish way of life.

Is There Really a Hope of Refuge?
Cindy Woodsmall has the unique ability to quickly grab your attention, emotions, and curiosity to whisk you into a wondrous world of her making. This is not your typical Amish story. Her main character Cara is a hard working waitress, a single mom who addicted to cigarettes and always looking over her shoulder to flee from a violent stalker. Cara does her best to survive in New York and care for her young daughter Lori, who is her world.
What I love about Cindy?s books is the fact that she talks about universal truths and lies some believe? things that we all struggle with from time to time?such as feeling abandoned, or a desperate need to be loved and be a part of a community so we can live our life to the fullest. Cara wants answers about her past so that she can figure out which path to take in the future.
Cindy has an uncanny way of letting you feel like you?re a fly on the wall and sensing that nothings being altered because you?re hanging around! She allows you to capture every detail of the drama unfolding in her story, up-close and personal. Ada, an Amish woman, says to Cara (who can?t figure out why anyone would want to be Amish), ?We all submit to something. Athletes submit to the rules of their game. Lawyers and judges submit to the laws. The highest court in the land submits to the Constitution?.The Amish choose to submit to the Ordnung in order to be strong against desires that want no boundaries.?
Cindy lifts the veil and allows you to peak into the Amish way of life. The Hope of Refuge is the beginning of an amazing tale, with believable characters you?d like to meet. I can?t wait to sit down to read Cindy?s next book, and find out where these special characters end up. The author leaves you with a satisfying ending and a desire to know what happens next. Thanks, Cindy for taking us on another exciting adventure in and out of the Amish community.
