Faithful to Laura by Kathleen Fuller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Faithful to Laura is book two in the 'A Middlefield Family Novel' series and picks up where 'Treasuring Emma' left off. In this book we meet Laura, a young woman, injured and left disfigured at the hands of the man she loved. Very bitter over the scars that mark her face twist her spirit, she longs for revenge and plans to do whatever it takes so that it will be hers. A that the Amish do not believe in and goes against everything she has been taught.
Sawyer is a young man who was adopted by a young Amish couple after the death of his biological parents. He has spent half of his life among the "English" and the rest among the Amish. He is undecided where his path will lead him. Whether he should remain Amish or go back to the English world.
When he meets Laura he is intrigued and he sees her for who she is and not for the scars that she is so conscious of. He struggles to reach her through her doubts and insecurities and to show her that he isn't like the monster who hurt her. Having been a victim of abuse in the past, he understands Laura more than she knows and he is determine to win her trust.
Just as Laura begins to open up to him, an unexpected guest arrives from New York and complicates Sawyer's decision on whether to commit to the Amish faith, and to Laura. His decision seems to hinge on this one person and his family fear that they may lose him. A final act of desperation threatens to tear Sawyer away from his Amish life and all the progress he had made with Laura seems to have been lost.
From that moment on, Laura has to make a decision for herself. Does she seek revenge? Does she let Sawyer go? Does she go home and explain herself to her parents and ask for their forgiveness? Most importantly, will she learn to let go of the past and trust God?
This book touched on forgiveness, healing and trusting God to bring good out of any situation. The characters were well fleshed out and story seemed to flow at fast but enjoyable pace.
