When she moves to Amish country to find peace and healing, Madeleine finds a special community-and a special man-who pull her out of her solitude and into a new life.
Moving to Pennsylvania wasn't in Madeleine's original plans. She should still be in California and should have married her pilot fiancé a year ago-but death has a way of changing everything. Now the former Air Force flight nurse is living alone in Paradise, Pennsylvania, and working as a maid at the Lancaster Grand Hotel. She isn't exactly a widow . . . but she sure feels like one.
Saul Beiler isn't exactly a widower . . . but his wife is long gone. His eleven-year-old daughter, Emma, doesn't know that her mother fled the Amish community-and married another man-but she does know that her dat is lonely, and that a pretty young maedel just moved in next door. Madeleine's numb heart begins to thaw as she spends more time with the innocent and ever optimistic Emma. The stronger her friendship grows with the young girl, the more intrigued Madeleine grows about the humble, strong man raising her on his own.
But even as a strange attraction pulls Saul and Madeleine across a stark cultural divide, they-and everybody around them-have to wonder: What could they possibly have in common besides heartache Will love allow Madeleine to finally find the home she's been dreaming of all along.
Homeless and runaway teens are becoming a huge part of the underground population in the U.S. According to research, "The National Runaway Switchboard estimates that on any given night there are approximately 1.3 million homeless youths living on the streets, in abandoned buildings, with friends or with strangers." (Homeless and Runaway Youth, 2013, NCSL) Some of these children runaway from violent and unstable home environments thinking that things will be better when they are on their own. Many of these children and teens leave home and find themselves in situations far more dangerous than their home life. In fact, some of them never make it home again or must endure unthinkable pain at the hands of predators. This is the reality for Jessica, Quintika, Justin, and Tommy. Each of them runaway from home with intentions of being successful on their own. They each have big dreams and high hopes that their lives will be better when they get away from their parents and their rules. However, they all quickly find out that the grass is rarely greener on the other side as they come face-to-face with Abaddon, The Devil. Now they must find the strength to defeat the devil, escape hell, and heal their Tortured Souls..... A Long Way from HOME!!!
