A MAN OF HIS WORD by Kathleen Fuller

Moriah has just married Levi Miller and thinks life could not be better. She lives in her husband's family home, with Levi's father and his twin brother Gabriel in the "dawdi haus" next door. But within a few short months Moriah begins to question Levi's lack of interest in her. Then one day she finds herself abandoned by Levi with just a short note telling her he is leaving the faith and her. What Moriah doesn't know is that the twin brother, Gabe, has always loved her and his heart is broken and angry when he sees what his brother has done to Moriah. But in the Amish faith Moriah must remain a married woman, with no divorce being possible, and a baby on the way.

This story was handled well. The emotions of Gabe for his brother's wife was a difficult subject to deal with but the author handled the situation very well. Gabe was a very noble and considerate person and took care of Moriah the best he could without conveying his true feelings. Moriah had alot to handle in her young life, but she never became bitter, but always held out hope and forgiveness. I look forward to reading book two in this series.
