Blog Tour: Between You and Me by Susan Wiggs

Author: Susan Wiggs
Publisher: William Morrow
Date of publication: June 2018

Caught between two worlds, Caleb Stoltz is bound by a deathbed promise to raise his orphaned niece and nephew in Middle Grove, where life revolves around family, farm, faith—and long-held suspicions about outsiders. When disaster strikes, Caleb is thrust into an urban environment of high-tech medicine and the relentless rush of modern life.

Dr. Reese Powell is poised to join the medical dynasty of her wealthy, successful parents. Bold, assertive, and quick-thinking, she lives for the addictive rush of saving lives. When a shocking accident brings Caleb Stoltz into her life, Reese is forced to deal with a situation that challenges everything she thinks she knows—and ultimately emboldens her to question her most powerful beliefs.

Then one impulsive act brings about a clash of cultures in a tug-of-war that plays out in a courtroom, challenging the very nature of justice and reverberating through generations, straining the fragile threads of faith and family.

I had a few reservations about reading Between You & Me.  Stories involving the Amish are not usually ones that I gravitate to.  However, I am a fan of this author, so I put my trust in her.  I'm glad I did.  The story involves Caleb and Reese what happens when their two worlds collide.  I was sucked right into the story and really enjoyed it.

The story was a little tough to get through at times because it deals with some heavy issues.  However, the book leaves you with a lot of hope.  One  thing I loved was the author's portrayal of Reese's experience as a brand new doctor.  She was, at times, unsure of herself yet determined to make a difference.  The clash between the "English" word and the Amish was very frustrating.  I understood Reeses's struggle with giving her patient's the care they need without compromising their beliefs.  

The other thing that I loved about the story was the slow build of  the romance between Caleb and Reese.  I adored them together.  Following their journey from friendship to love was a real treat. I loved Caleb and his honesty.  I was really rooting for Caleb to take the path he chose.  I highly recommend this one.  I have a feeling it's going to make my top 10 of the year.
