Faithful to Laura: A Middlefield Family Novel, by Kathleen Fuller, is the second in the Middlefield Family Series. It continues the story of Adam and Emma, from the first book, Treasuring Emma, as well as introducing the story of Sawyer and Laura. The two accounts are interwoven, just as our lives are interwoven in any community we live within.
Emma continues to struggle with trusting Adam enough to marry him, but eventually agrees. Meanwhile, Adam must reveal events from his past that he does not want to come between them after their marriage. Laura is haunted by Mark King’s attack and the scars it left on her face. She is focused on seeking revenge for his misdeeds. Sawyer finds himself falling in love with Laura, but is thrown into confusion when his wealthy grandmother shows up claiming she knew nothing of his existence until three days prior.
I enjoyed this story. The characters seemed very real as I read about them. I could relate to their reactions to various situations, as I have reacted to similar situations in my life. I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys Amish fiction, but I would definitely read the first book before picking this one up.
