On Order



Rose Martin, fearless young nurse, cares for the critically injured. But when a car bomb explosion kills her cancer patient -- rich widow and beloved mentor Sophie Hostetter -- Rose faces a difficult question: Who could have done this? Was it Peter, Sophie's financial risk -- taking son? Rose escapes into the arms of Jake, a man struggling with his past and his Amish heritage, yet decisions come hard in matters of love and forgiveness. Can the living find God's forgiveness for themselves and justice for the dead?

Library Journal Review

The explosion threw nurse/EMT Rose Martin to the ground. As she sat up, she stared in horror at the burning remains of the car carrying her most recent patient. In the ensuing investigation, Rose becomes the target of the bomber and seeks shelter with an Amish family by rooming upstairs from Jake, the eldest, non-Amish son. As Rose's feelings for Jake deepen, she fights not only a monster who wants her dead but also Jake's lack of faith and his belief that his wheelchair prevents him from being the man she deserves. If the setting in Pennsylvania and the definitions of some Amish terms are not clear until late in the book, these are minor concerns next to the development of Rose and Jake's relationship.
