Today I am reviewing Her Brother’s Keeper, the first book in the Amish Secrets series by Beth Wiseman.
Here is a brief synopsis:
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?

Wow! What an amazing book!
I can honestly say I didn’t really expect — well, what I got. From the very first words I read – to the last page of the book… I couldn’t put it down. It was SO GOOD!
Please don’t get me wrong; Beth Wiseman has been a favorite author of mine for several years, but this time she blew me away! This story will grab hold of you and you’ll be caught up in it – until the very end.
Charlotte Dolinsky is determined to discover what happened to her brother (her only brother). She travels to Lancaster County, and she is prepared to do whatever it takes, even living a lie – to get the facts.
Okay, I’m trying to not spoil the story for you… so it’s going to be difficult to write about, but believe me, you won’t want to miss out on this story!
For the first time, I had no idea who I wanted to be my favorite character. Usually it’s pretty easy to root for someone, but Beth made it very difficult – and I loved that it wasn’t an easy choice, but you’ll be glad you took time to read it – believe me!
God bless you!
