In New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray's latest novel in the suspenseful Amish of Hart County series, an EMT falls for a woman with ties to an Amish community where people are dying similar, suspicious deaths . . .

Sadie Detweiler never imagined she'd move to Kentucky, yet here she is: a pregnant, unmarried Amish girl banished by unforgiving parents to live with kin she barely knows. The men are gruff and her cousins are secretive. Worst of all, elderly matriarch Verba becomes mysteriously ill shortly after Sadie moves in. When EMT Noah Freeman arrives, Sadie immediately notices he's unlike any other Amish man she's met. Noah is warm and confident, and has an easy way with practically everyone in the community, both Amish and English. Though Sadie is drawn to him, she has little hope he will reciprocate her feelings once he learns she's with child.

Noah can't understand how a girl as sweet and lovely as Sadie ended up sleeping on a cot in Verba Stauffer's kitchen. He also senses Sadie is terrified of something. Concerned, he checks up on her. Eventually they strike up a friendship and soon their attraction is undeniable. When Verba later dies at the hospital and her death is followed by two others, Noah's boss wants him to dig around the Amish community for clues. He agrees--for Sadie's sake--because only the truth will keep Sadie safe and by his side.

A raw and emotional look at the Amish who have flaws instead of painting them in a perfect light. It deals with an unexpected pregnancy and a lie that sets off a series of events that sends Sadie away. The course has many twists and turns and your heart is broken for her. It is a story of overcoming fear, forgiveness, finding love in unexpected places, and running the race that God has set before us. I love the Amish Proverb, “Do what you can with what you have where you are.” Sadie does just that...she makes the best of a difficult situation and does whatever is required to protect her unborn child. This is a book of Hope and draws you in with its characterization and a story that grabs you from the first line. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. I received a complimentary copy from the author. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

Shelley Shepherd Gray often writes about the Amish but she doesn't portray them as perfect people with no faults or problems. Her characters are like most of us. We try, we falter and we sometimes fail but through God's love and grace, we can be forgiven. Sadie Detweiler is Amish but she is no different than many other young women who have trusted in the wrong person and then found themselves facing an unplanned pregnancy alone. Sadie is forced to leave her Ohio home and go to live with relatives she barely knows in Hart County, Kentucky and she immediately becomes a part of circumstances that are both mysterious and perhaps life-threatening. Noah Freeman is a young Amish man working as an EMT and he intuitively recognizes her need for friendship and understanding. He steps in to help her and his strength and his kindness support her as she tries to make a life for her unborn child. This book deals with deceit and manipulation, the illegal production of moonshine, some unexplained deaths and the consequences of breaking the law. I found the title Her Fear very appropriate because there are many kinds of fear woven into this story and they affect several of the characters. Fear of disobedience, fear of discovery, fear of failure, fear of being unable to provide for a child and fear of being alone and never finding happiness. Through it all, however, there is the presence of hope and a reminder that forgiveness is possible and that God will prevail. Shelley Shepherd Gray possesses a wonderful talent of creating characters who are fallible but never beyond redemption and situations that seem hopeless but never irreparable. I heartily recommend this fifth book of The Amish of Hart County series. I received a complimentary copy from the author and publisher but I wasn't obligated to write a favorable review. These are my honest thoughts.
