Shelley Shepard Gray has to be my favorite writer in the Amish genre. She has managed to take a classic story locations and spin it with a modern feel. It is not your mother's books but a fresh approach to the tight knit communities that we've grown to love. His Guilt is no different. This book doesn't shy away from real problems and issues facing not only the amish people but our communities as well. Tackling subjects like domestic abuse, alcohol and even emotional longing is tough but Gray weaves these things is effortlessly. This book was a bit of a page turner as it has the added benefit of mystery. I love that and I honestly read it in about two days which is unheard of with all these boys running around and it being summertime! I always enjoy Shelley Shepard Gray's books and this one was perhaps one of my all time favorites!
A suspenseful tale of an Amish man who will risk all to protect the woman he loves.
Mark Fisher has returned home to Hart County, determined to put the past behind him. Two years ago, after being wrongly accused of assault, he left the Amish community, though never forgot his home. When the one person who had helped him through his rough times asks for help, Mark returns. But it is pretty Waneta Cain who makes him want to stay...
Neeta is one of the few people in Hart County who doesn't believe Mark is guilty of hurting anyone. However, his worldliness and tough exterior do make her uneasy. As she begins to see the real man behind all the gossip and prejudice, she wonders if he is the man for her.
Just when Mark starts to believe a new life is possible, a close friend of Neeta's is attacked. Once again, everyone in the community seems to believe he is guilty. But what hurts most is Neeta's sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt, a woman who is close to both Neeta and himself, Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find him before Neeta becomes his next victim?
