The Protective One

The tragic and untimely death of an old friend has made Elizabeth Anne rethink not only her priorities but her courtship with David, her longtime neighbor and suitor. Though he’s Mennonite like herself and has her parents’ approval, she feels that a spark is missing. Desperate for a change, she breaks things off—wondering if, perhaps, she’s the one who’s missing a spark.

When her family becomes upset with her decision, E.A. turns to her friends for support. One of them is Will, a man with a good heart who has always been there for her. As the two bond over their shared struggle to navigate a future that everyone else seems to have figured out, they are surprised to realize that they have feelings for each other.

But E.A.’s world takes a sudden turn when she realizes that she’s not the only one struggling—Marta, one of her sewing students, is in desperate need of protection. With the aid of Will and several other friends, Elizabeth Anne begins a journey that is more difficult and rewarding than she could have ever that ultimately enables her to find everything she’s been searching for.

In this latest installment in the Walnut Creek series that “both delights and surprises” (Leslie Gould, bestselling author), Shelley Shepard Gray pens a powerful and poignant tale of friendship, courage, and love.

My Review

If you are a fan of Amish stories than you need to check out author, Shelley Shepard Gray. I have read several books by this author and really enjoyed them all. This new book is no exception. This book can  be read as a stand alone novel. You don't have to read these books in chronological order. However after reading this book, you will want to go back and read the prior novels or try another series by this author.

Elizabeth Anne aka E.A. was so kind. She showed it with Marta. Thus the reason I was so happy to see her find love with Will. I can't really comment on E.A.'s prior boyfriend and how I felt about him as he was briefly mentioned in the beginning of this book and than not really after that. As Will and E.A. learned; sometimes love can sneak up on you when you least expect it.
