Gayle Roper's A Secret Identity ~ Reviewed
A Secret Identity, Amish Farm Trilogy Series #2
By: Gayle Roper
Number of Pages: 304
Vendor: Harvest House Publishers
Publication Date: 2010
Readers will be delighted as popular author Gayle Roper continues her contemporary Amish series (that began with A Stranger’s Wish) with book two in The Amish Farm series, A Secret Identity.
Cara Bentley is raised by her grandfather to appreciate family. When she discovers—quite by accident—that he was adopted, her whole perspective changes. If he wasn’t a Bentley, who was he? If she isn’t a Bentley, who is she? She determines to find her “real” family.
Ending up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she takes a room at the Zook family farm. When she seeks the help of attorney Todd Reasoner, the search for the truth begins in earnest.
But as mysterious accidents begin to happen, Cara suspects her attempt to find out the truth is not welcome—and neither is she.
A Secret Identity involves a young writer named Cara Bentley who finds out that her grandfather was adopted. In her search for her real family, she finds herself in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where she not only finds more leads on her family, but she finds the possibility of love in her new lawyer, Todd Reasoner.
It took me a couple of chapters to get into this book, but once I did, I had a hard time putting it down. The book was written from Cara’s point of view. I really liked this for a change, as it’s fun to know what the character is thinking at all times. It almost puts you in her place. There was a bit of suspense throughout the book as well, which kept me on the edge of my seat. .
This book was a great read, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves Christian fiction!
