Lida Reinhart deeply resents John Sexton, the Southerner her Amish community calls "The English," who has brought tragedy to her family and secretly works as a "sojourner" on the Underground Railroad. Ambushed by bounty hunters, Sexton and her brother Ephraim are shot. Now she is forced by Amish standards of courtesy to care for the wounded man she blames for her brother's death at the same time she tries desperately to deny their growing, if antagonistic, attraction to each other. Although of more than passing interest because of the Amish setting, Wimberly's (You Must Remember This, Silhouette, 1996) story is almost anticlimactic after a dramatic start with the intrigue of the Underground Railroad. Once the characters are married, the historical interest evaporates.
