Mending Fences by Suzanna Woods Fisher The Deacon's Family Series Book 1

This contemporary Amish story was very good reading.  Luke Schrock is recovering after 3 times in rehab.  Living with Amos and Fern he becomes a useful hand on the farm.  However, he has obligations to fulfill.  That is to apologize to each and every person that he hurt or in someway did something to which he should not have done.  The list is long... And then he is to find out how what he did to them affected them and how he can rectify that for them.  He lives on the same farm as Izzy, also recovering and under the care of Amos and Fern.  There are some underlying story lines that will keep you totally engaged.

The storyline is very interesting and a good story of repentance, forgiveness, human feelings and issues in people's lives to overcome and deal with.

Luke is a very likeable character despite his flaws. Izzy too!  I was completely immersed!  I hope it's not too long of a wait for book 2!  It was a wonderful book!  You will want to read this one!

I received an ebook copy from NetGalley.  All thoughts are my own.
