Barbara Cameron in her new book, “Return To Paradise book coverReturn To Paradise” Book One in The Coming Home series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Lavina Zook.

From the back cover:  Sometimes coming home is harder than it should be…

Twelve months ago, David Stoltzfus left the Amish community in Paradise, Pennsylvania—and encouraged his siblings to follow—after their father became overly stern and even abusive with them. Escaping to a new life in the Englisch world was the only way to keep one another safe. But it was not without sacrifice. When David left his father’s house and community, he also left behind Lavina Zook, the woman he planned to wed.

Lavina hasn’t forgiven David for abandoning her, but when David’s father is diagnosed with cancer, she believes she might be the only one to lure him back to make peace . . . before it’s too late. Still, forgiveness isn’t easy. Even if she can get David to return, she’s not sure he will forgive his father. And she’s not sure she can forgive David, either.

Ms. Cameron has given us a very interesting story that draws you in to it from the beginning and it does not let you go. This is all about abandonment. It is all about forgiveness. This story shows us love in action, love displayed. When Lavina says she loves David she does more than speak with her mouth, she puts it into practice. Did I mention there is also a romance?  Lavina and David are really great characters that we fall in love with and feel as though they are friends that we do not want to leave when the book is finished. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
