His Guilt Cover
This book is Amish Fiction & #HisGuilt is a bit of a thriller with a maniac on the loose who keeps assaulting the Amish women. Who is he, why is he doing it and when will he strike again makes the novel a page-turner. His Guilt is the second book of Amish Fiction in the series of The Amish of Hart County by Shelley but I did not feel I missed anything since I have not read book one.

This is the story of Mark and Waneta who find each other again as they end up working together. Mark who has faced ridicule and shunned by all since he was under suspicion for the assault comes under the radar yet again after a fresh attack but this time he has Waneta to support him and fight for him.

So effortlessly does their liking and friendship blossom into love that it feels like the perfect thing. Waneta is a colleague as both work in the same Nursery and get plenty of time to be together. Her parents also accept and invite Mark supporting him openly when many choose to shun him. The two of them rediscover themselves and each other, making friends along the way.

The suspense of who is the real culprit keeps everyone on their tenterhooks but soon all is revealed and the town can rest easy.  His Guilt is a good read for all, especially who like a bit of substance in their romance since it had layers with friends who fight their own battles, a brother who is looking for a second chance and parents who support their children and those who cause so much pain to theirs.

I am a big, big fan of Shelley Shepard Gray and her Amish Fiction. I just love her books and the stories she weaves, see reviews of A Daughter’s Dream, A WEDDING AT ORANGE BLOSSOM INN, The Promise Of Palm Grove and the story collection Among The Fair Magnolias to know more. Her stories of the Amish people transport me to a place that is so different yet similar to ours. All cultures have similar ideals and values as do the Amish, she helps us see the goodness around us Simple, strong people with so much goodness and kindness makes it a breeze to read her books. I am reading another book by Shelley already. 🙂

His Guilt CoverAbout the book: 

A suspenseful tale of an Amish man who will risk all to protect the woman he loves.
Mark Fisher has returned home to Hart County, determined to put the past behind him. Two years ago, after being wrongly accused of assault, he left the Amish community, though never forgot his home. When the one person who had helped him through his rough times asks for help, Mark returns. But it is pretty Waneta Cain who makes him want to stay…
Neeta is one of the few people in Hart County who doesn’t believe Mark is guilty of hurting anyone. However, his worldliness and tough exterior do make her uneasy. As she begins to see the real man behind all the gossip and prejudice, she wonders if he is the man for her.
Just when Mark starts to believe a new life is possible, a close friend of Neeta’s is attacked. Once again, everyone in the community seems to believe he is guilty. But what hurts most is Neeta’s sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt, a woman who is close to both Neeta and himself, Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find him before Neeta becomes his next victim?

    I have never read Amish fiction but like you said I love to read stories set in other cultures – that’s the best way to get a better understanding of them. The thriller angle seems interesting too.
