Book Review and Giveaway - His Guilt


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?

Shelley Shepard Gray is one of my favorite authors and this book is one of her best! I was drawn into the story from page one and it held my attention to the very end!

I really like Neeta because she has such a sweet heart and is always trying to find the best in everyone. She looks past the façade into what might be troubling others and this is evident when she tries to see past the hard shell of Mark and reaches out to him as a friend.

Mark returns to the community of Hart County and there is suspicion against him when women start being attacked. Gossip is running rampage and it takes on a life of it's own. This story really focuses on what happens when people gossip and others believe the gossip. It ruins lives and creates sin issues for those involved in the gossiping.

I really like the suspense in this novel. The author is always good at creating this kind of story that grabs you right away. I love the complex characters and how we see the changes in their lives. Although this is definitely an Amish tale, it's very complex and the mystery makes it a page turner.

I love this book and highly recommend it. It's a wonderful story and the characters will stay with you. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
