Marta Perry's Restless Hearts ~ Reviewed

Restless Hearts
By Marta Perry
Published by Steeple Hill
ISBN-10: 0373874243

A search for her roots brought midwife Fiona Flanagan to Pennsylvania Dutch country—and made her wonder whether she should turn back. The area's mixture of Amish and English culture confused her, and her first encounter with local police chief Ted Rittenhouse didn't help. he'd thought she was breaking into her own office!

Despite the misunderstanding, Fiona could see that Ted's tough-as-nails exterior hid a kind soul—one caught between two worlds, seeking a place to belong. She felt the same, but trusting him with her heart would require the biggest step of faith she had ever taken.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story kept moving along, each storyline developing strongly and with clear resolution of all the problems. I could identify with the heroine and look forward to more books about her. I enjoy reading fiction about PA Dutch and have read other stories with this theme. The medical part also held my interest.
