Will returning to their Amish roots renew their faith in each other?
Isaac and David never thought they’d go back to the Amish world. But when Isaac’s younger brother is stricken with cancer, they don’t hesitate to return. Their relationship is on the rocks after insecurity and fear drove a wedge between them in San Francisco, and David is determined to make things right. Yet if they thought navigating “English” life was confusing, being back in Zebulon is even more complicated.
Their families are desperate to bring them back into the fold, and pressure from the community builds. Isaac and David yearn for a future together, but each day it becomes harder to hide the truth about who they really are. They’re caught between two worlds, and if they’re not careful it could tear them further apart.
Can Isaac and David make their way back to each other—and find a place to call home?
This is the final chapter in a trilogy of forbidden Amish love.
When last we left our poor Amish boys, Isaac was back in Zebulon and David was more than a little broken. The English world had taken its toll on David and their relationship. We were left wondering how they wouldn’t find each other again with Isaac back in the clutches of his highly conservative religious family and community.
The reason Isaac is back in Zebulon is the dire state of his brother’s health. Nothing short of that would make him return, but he has to return, or they will never be free of the demons of their past. Of course, David joins him there in short order.
Maybe I have read too many books (is that possible), but A Way Home played out exactly as I thought it would. All the suspense that was generated by each little step added interest, but not as much as I think was intended. Each conflict was tied up in a pretty bow and life moved forward. Demons are exercised, and Isaac and David are stronger than ever.
While I don’t know that we would be able to believe the happily ever after in any other way, the short timeline for the epiphanies (not to mention the cancer treatment for Nathan) was a little disappointing for this reader. The quick way the Clark incident was put behind our heroes also seemed a bit disingenuous.
The circular arguments of the parent’s and community did begin to grate on my nerves a bit, but seeing each argument bolster Isaac and/or David’s resolve was satisfying.
All that said, A Way Home is a much-needed conclusion to Isaac and David’s story. If you have made it this far in their journey, you will no doubt want to pick up this (assumed) final installment on their road to freedom.
