Shelley Shepard Gray is a prolific writer of Amish fiction. I have read many of her books and am amazed that she can concoct so many new stories. What a great mind!
Her novel, “His Guilt” is one that I appreciated very much. Not only did she tell an engrossing tale, but there was a message to readers in this book. Judging other people can have lasting repercussions, especially if the person is wrong and just assumes facts not in evidence.
Mark Fisher has returned to his hometown after a couple of years away. He was questioned in the bludgeoning death of a young girl and found innocent. However, the community was still leery of him. His upbringing was less than desirable which also caused suspicion. Neeta Cain works with Mark at a nursery and at first is as leery as everyone else. It is her parents who help her see that Mark is a good man. However, two more young girls are attacked and suspicion falls again on Mark. The people who count are sure of his innocence, and that means a lot to Mark.
I received a complimentary print copy of this book from LitFuse.com.
