Her Brother's Keeper by Beth Wiseman

Charlotte's heart has been hardened by personal tragedy, but now she has the chance to find peace in a place she didn't expect.

Charlotte Dolinsky arrives in Lancaster County with brand new Amish digs and a renewed purpose. It doesn't take her long to fit into the close Amish community. She might not know how to cook, sew, tend a garden, or milk a cow, but she knows how to lie. And she is a woman on a mission – to wreak havoc on the Plain people and seek revenge for the death of her only brother. But a quiet stranger throws a kink in her plan not long after she arrives. As she delves deeper and deeper into what makes this handsome Amish man tick, she begins to wonder about her intentions and the direction her life is taking.

At twenty-four, Isaac Miller is still unmarried and doesn't see his status changing anytime soon. The Lord has blessed him with above-average physical attributes, but his awkward shyness keeps him from pursuing a relationship with anyone. When Charlotte – or "Charlie" as she calls herself – arrives in Paradise, she steals his heart, and he longs to be a different man.

Can Charlie get past the resentment she feels and open her heart? What happens when Isaac comes out of his shell, drawing attention from all the available women in the area? Will Charlie be able to hold onto him? And will he still want her when he learns the truth?

Beth Wiseman sets up her newest novel, Her Brother’s Keeper, with an interesting premise: in order to discover the truth behind her brother’s death, Charlotte Dolinsky visits Lancaster County, pretending to be Amish. Yet, in the process of hiding her identity, she discovers faith, family and friendship that will leave her changed. With the addition of intriguing mystery and sweet, believable romance to these encouraging discoveries, Her Brother’s Keeper offers a great read for fans of Amish fiction. I certainly enjoyed it and now look forward to Wiseman’s next book in her Amish Secrets series.

  1. the discussion in the books, leans toward 'is suicide going against Gods' plan' my opinion is that this is a form of emotional illness; and I believe
    God would not condemn our mentally disabled and to me suicide is mental illness; that just couldn't be dealt with. Our Lord knows the struggles his children deal with; I don't think it's an illness to be held accountable to.
