Hope of Refuge

The Hope of Refuge by Cindy Woodsmall


Raised in foster care and now the widowed mother of a little girl, Cara Moore struggles against poverty, fear, and a relentless stalker. When a trail of memories leads Cara and Lori out of New York City toward an Amish community, she follows every lead, eager for answers and a fresh start. She discovers that long-held secrets about her family history ripple beneath the surface of Dry Lake, Pennsylvania, and it’s no place for an outsider. But one Amish man, Ephraim Mast, dares to fulfill the command he believes that he received from God–“Be me to her”– despite how it threatens his way of life.

This book is a sweet story that draws you in. I loved getting a glimpse into an Amish community. The author does a great job of tying together several subplots and creating real, engaging characters. This is a relaxing book, perfect for lazy summer days. I have a copy to give away, so please send me an email if you are interested.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review. You can find places to purchase the book by visiting

I read this one awhile back. I agree this book does draw you in. I really enjoy reading about the Amish~ even if it is fiction!
