In this third series title (after The Waiting and The Choice), Bess Reihl is spending the summer helping her grandmother Bertha work Rose Hill Farm. Lainey O'Toole is on her way to culinary school when her car breaks down in the Amish community of Stoney Ridge, the very town where she made a fateful choice 15 years before. Now she will have to face her past as the separate worlds of both these women collide.
Verdict: This pleasant tale of love and forgiveness has a homespun feel that will attract readers who like character-driven stories with a relaxed pace. And, of course, bonnet fiction is always popular; fans of Marta Perry will snap this one up.

Fifteen years ago, Lainey O'Toole made a split-second decision. She couldn't have known that her choice would impact so many. Now in her mid-twenties, she is poised to go to culinary school when her car breaks down in Stoney Ridge, the very Amish town in which her long-reaching decision was made, forcing her to face the shadowed past.
Bess Reihl is less than thrilled to be spending the summer at Rose Hill Farm with her large and intimidating grandmother, Bertha. It quickly becomes clear that she is there to work the farm--and work hard. The labor is made slightly more tolerable by the time it affords Bess to spend with the handsome hired hand, Billy Lapp. But he only has eyes for a flirty and curvaceous older girl.
Lainey's and Bess's worlds are about to collide and the secrets that come to light will shock them both.
Beautifully written, The Search is a skillfully woven story that takes readers through unexpected twists and turns on the long country road toward truth. Fans both old and new will find themselves immersed in this heartwarming--and surprising--tale of young love, forgiveness, and coming to grips with the past.
