Item description for The Crossroad (Amish Country Crossroads #2) by Beverly Lewis...
Overview New York journalist Philip Bradley returns to Lancaster County haunted by the memory of a soft-spoken widow he met there, but winning her heart is just the first step in long journey that will require him to surrender his own culture.
Publishers Description In this tender novel and its sequel, two people from different worlds discover a long-kept secret--and forbidden love. Rachel Yoder has resigned herself to life as an Amish widow. Though painfully shy, she and her young daughter help her parents run a bed-and-breakfast in Lancaster County. Philip Bradley, a New York journalist on assignment, comes to stay at the Yoder's B&B. When he finds an old postcard written in Pennsylvania Dutch, he enlists Rachel's help in uncovering its mysteries. When Philip and Rachel are drawn to one another, her Amish community's rules seem destined to keep them apart.
Community Description After the dramatic conclusion to his discovery of a long-lost postcard, journalist Philip Bradley simply cannot forget the Amish people he met while on assignment in Pennsylvania, particularly Rachel Yoder and her young daughter, Annie. Rachel s cheerful outlook, in spite of her blindness, and her appealing, uncomplicated lifestyle beckon Philip amid the high-paced existence of his New York career.
Philip's newfound knowledge of the true reason for Rachel's loss of sight spurs him on to uncover what he can about the possibility for a cure. In Lancaster County, Rachel has her own ideas about the way her vision might be restored, and it doesn't include the local healer and his black box. Now, Rachel firmly believes the God she serves is the only One who can grant her sight, but as the memories of the trauma she suffered begin to resurface, Rachel questions whether she can bear the agonizing road to recovery.
