This is the last in a 3 book series. All are great reading but I would suggest you try to read them in order to be able to see where each character comes into the stories. Each book tells a spell binding tell of how the Amish handle hate from the outside world. Once you start one of these books you will not want to put it down till the end. Karen Harper has a vivid imagination, you will not be able to figure out the ending till the end comes.
A lightweight but atmospheric suspense story of an Amish woman haunted by a plot that brings her into conflict with the "English" world outside her little community. The story gets a little convoluted and unbelievable toward the end, but the heroine is well-written, and the suspense keeps you turning the pages.
Dark Harvest transports readers back to the peaceful Amish community in rural Maplecreek, Ohio. Young spinster schoolteacher Leah Kurtz becomes involved in a conflict between her horse-and-buggy culture and futuristic genetic research after she agrees to adopt the infant daughter of a friend dying from one of the hereditary diseases that plague the Plain People (in real life as well as in fiction). Vicious graffiti targeting "English" outsider Mark Morelli, a doctor researching disease cures, sets a sinister mood that grows darker when his ultra-responsible, teenage Amish assistant mysteriously vanishes. After someone switches Leah's adopted baby in the cradle for another infant, Leah and Mark team up to investigate a series of unsolved disappearances that may lead back to Leah's former fiancé, who abandoned her at the altar years earlier. With its tantalizing buildup and well-developed characters, which ensure that the burgeoning romance between Leah and Mark is as potent as the book's suspense, this offering is certain to earn Harper high marks.
Story of an girl who goes to wake her adopted daughter and knows there is a problem. This is an Amish community and adds to the problem. Great reading and suspense.
I enjoyed this one so much, as it gave a glimpse into the life of the Amish, including the peculiar illnesses that plauge this community. Add baby snatching, genetic research, and love interest to the mix and you have a romantic, medical thriller you can't put down until the last page is read.
