A Simple Faith by Rosalind Lauer
A Simple Faith by Rosalind Lauer is a welcome trip back to Halfway Pennsylvania. We were first welcomed to Halfway and the King family in a Simple Winter. Although the King family makes a cameo this story features nursing student Haley Donovan and psychologist Dylan Monroe. On her way home from the hospital Haley witness an accident between an SUV and a van full of Amish. Elsie Lapp and Ruben Zook were passengers on the van. A Simple Faith is the story of how Englishers and Amish deal with the aftermath of the accident.
Rosalind Lauer brings to life the people of Halfway and draws one into their lives. The people are very real and I found myself laughing and crying along with them. I love the vivid descriptions of each persons trauma, whether physical or mental and the revelation of unrelated trauma in other people. I am looking forward to reading A Simple Hope, the next book in the Lancaster Crossroads saga.
