Today I am reviewing His Guilt, the second book in The Amish of Hart County series by Shelley Shepard Gray.
Here is a brief synopsis:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray delivers the next novel in her Amish of Hart County series—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?
His Guilt introduces the Fisher boys… Mark and Calvin come from the worst sort of home, so it’s no surprise that they leave Hart County to explore the English world. Mark returns two years later and goes to work for his friend Henry Lehmann. But it’s sweet, innocent Waneta Cain who touches his heart. But Neeta doesn’t trust Mark. . .
When Mark is suspected of attacking someone, people in the community continue to doubt his innocence. Should he stay even when neighbors are pushing him to go? I know just what I would tell him to do. . .
