Her Brother's Keeper1


Her Brother’s Keeper is Book One of Amish Secrets Series by Beth Wiseman.

About the Book

Charlotte Dolinsky is not above playing dress-up and telling a few lies to find out what happened to her only brother. In fact, that is exactly what she’s come to Lancaster County to do. Now, calling herself Mary and slipping on a kapp, Charlotte will lie her way into the confidence of anyone who knows why Ethan had to die. Unless she gets found out first.

But when Charlotte befriends a quiet Amish man named Isaac Miller, she begins to rethink her motives. And with a little help from a friend back home, Charlotte might find out that love comes packaged in ways she couldn’t have foreseen.

Isaac’s been caring for his cancer-stricken father and sympathizing with his frustrated mother for three difficult years. And that means he hasn’t been dating. He believes Hannah King is the woman for him, but Hannah is still grieving the loss of her fiancé, and Isaac has all he can handle on the farm. When Hannah’s family plays host to a woman named Mary, their new cousin shakes things up for all of them.

As Charlotte digs deeper into the mystery of Ethan’s death, she finds more than she’d bargained for in the community he once called home. But will she ever learn the truth? And what will the community—and her new family—do if they learn the truth about her?

My Thoughts

Charlotte Dolinsky changes her name to Mary and pretends to be an Amish when she visits Lancaster County. She feels her reasons for doing so are justifiable.

Charlotte’s brother, Ethan had come to Lancaster County as a construction worker. While there, he met and fell in love with an Amish girl named Hannah King. Shortly after Hannah and Ethan’s engagement, the unthinkable happens, for no obvious or apparent reason Ethan commits suicide.

Charlotte doesn’t care who she hurts in her quest for the truth, but as she gets to know the King family, she begins to wonder if there is more to the story than meets the eye.

Beth Wiseman has written an interesting book about a young lady’s mission to find the real reason for and to avenge her brother’s death.

I enjoyed the book, however, I recently lost my brother (though not by suicide, but very unexpectedly), so the subject matter was hard for me to dissociate from.

I have read other books by Beth Wiseman and greatly enjoyed them.
