Rebecca's RoseBook - 2012
Rebecca Miller's mother is confined to bed, so the nineteen year-old must run the household, manage the family farm, and care for her younger siblings. Although she feels trapped at times, she is determined to fulfill a promise she made to her best friend before the girl died. Then Rebecca meets a boy with uncommon good looks and a mischievous glint in his eye who just might help her keep her vow. Levi Cooper was born in Apple Lake and schooled in the Amish way of life until he was seven years old. After his father died in an accident, Levi's mother married an Englischer and was consequently shunned by her Amish relatives. Forced to leave the Plain community, Levi grows up as an Englischer, scarcely thinking about the life he used to live. Haunted by painful memories on the path to self-destruction, Levi meets an Amish girl who is looking for adventure. Rebecca's growing attachment to Levi could lead to the loss of everything she holds dear. Will the secret he keeps separate them forever?
