About "Her Secret":

A suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker

After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she's getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky...if only she wasn't too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone-even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she'll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.

For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called "The Recluse" confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he's misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God's gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there's always more to someone than meets the eye.

Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.

My thoughts:

Shelley takes the reader on a young woman's emotional journey as she struggles to get her life back after a stalker has made her life miserable. This novel deals with stalking which is a subject that I don't know much about. I feel that I have a little better understanding of why people find it difficult to trust others after feeling violated. Reading this story made me do some reflecting about my distrust towards people. I can see now how I have isolated myself in my home in order to keep people at a distance. I am taking steps to break out of my comfort zone and making the effort to include others back into my life. 

It turns out that Hannah is not the only one with a secret, all the family members are hiding something.  Eventually the family learns that communicating and forgiveness is what their family has been needing in order to heal. Purchase a copy on Amazon.
