The Hope of Refuge
by New York Times bestselling author
Cindy Woodsmall

Raised in foster care and now a widowed single parent, New Yorker Cara Moore struggles against poverty, fear, and a relentless stalker. When a trail of memories leads Cara and her daughter, Lori, away from the city toward an Amish community, she follows every lead, eager for answers to mysteries from her past and a fresh start. She quickly discovers that Dry Lake, Pennsylvania, is no place for an outsider. But one Amish man, Ephraim Mast, dares to fulfill the command he believes that he received from God-”Be me to her”- despite how it threatens his way of life.

“Cindy Woodsmall’s The Hope of Refuge takes the reader on an emotional journey into the heart of Amish country and the heart of a very human heroine. A compelling novel of love lost and found with realistic characters from two very different worlds which become, beautifully, one.”
–Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of Deep Down

”. . . Cindy Woodsmall’s novels are in a class by themselves. Great stories about characters that will live on in your memory long after you shelve the book. The Hope of Refuge is one of my top picks for 2009. Novel Reviews and I highly recommend it— a 5-star read. It has a permanent place in my personal library.”

Safety. Serenity. That's all Jack Matthews wants, and what he seeks in Lost Falls, Montana. A quiet retreat is just what his orphaned nephew, Max needs. But when sirens in the night leave Max screaming, Jack is faced with a harsh truth. They're not safe--not him, not Max, and especially not his lovely inn keeper, Erin. What is she hiding? What does the shadowy figure stalking her want?
