About the Book:
A groundbreaking series takes Amish readers where they’ve never gone before . . . Colorado. Emily Detweiler’s family abruptly moved to Colorado after tragedy struck in Ohio. But Emily can’t get far enough to escape what happened there.
David Stoltzfus is not happy when his family relocates from Pennsylvania to Colorado. Nevermind that they haven’t told him why. David struggles not only with this unwelcome move, but also with the fear that a health condition could keep him from living his life in full.
Emily and David each come to terms with a past that follows them, testing their faith and resolve. Will they overcome adversity and step onto the path God has chosen for them?

I LOVED this novel! Beth Wiseman’s writing is STUNNING and quickly captures me everytime. While I’ve read her novellas in An Amish Christmas, An Amish Gathering, and An Amish Love, I have been anxiously awaiting a new series from her. I read her series, Daughters of the Promise, and fell in love instantly. I just can’t ever get enough Beth Wiseman novels! I was in for a real treat, though, when I started reading this sweet read. I got to visit with long time friends, Samuel, Lillian and David Stoltzfus, whom I met when reading Plain Perfect!
Sweet David and Emily’s characters were wonderful. My heart was instantly captured by them. Both of them, though, had issues to deal with from the past that they needed to overcome. Reading their stories and watching them grow in their faith together, as they sought Him with all their hearts, was a heart warming, and eye opening, experience.
Beth Wiseman did a great job at using that message- seeking Him with all their hearts- for not only Emily and David, but also sweet Katie Ann and even the cranky ol’ Martha’s character! I was completely fascinated with the way it all blended so well, yet left Emily and David the center of the story.
This is at the top of my Amish novel recommendations list. Hands down, it’s a 5 star novel and a perfect start to the Land of Canaan series. While I was sad to see the story end, I’m happily, anxiously awaiting the release of the second Land of Canaan novel!
