Publisher's Summary

How much would you be willing to sacrifice for the one you love? Lillianna Zook and Thomas Girod had been friends throughout most of their Amish childhood, but they part ways when Lillianna's family moves to a district in another state. She fears their friendship has been lost forever until a chance encounter brings them in contact once again. Lillianna learns that Thomas needs money - a lot of it - and it's a matter of life and death. Lillianna is willing to do anything she can to help Thomas, so when an opportunity arises where she can make a lot of money in a short time, she doesn't hesitate. But will her sacrifice be worth the trials this new opportunity presents?

Just ok

Not my favorite by this author. Story was not fleshed out enough and was not the kind of Amish fiction I typically enjoy

Warning! Rape scenes, could not finish listening.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Writing was very poor from the beginning. Lil hasn't seen Thomas in what, a decade or something, since they were children, and they happen to run into each other and say they love each other and want to get married. That's just stupid, they don't even know each other, and this was AFTER he said he didn't believe in God. Then there is the rape scene with her new boss. Disgusting and pathetic and depressing, could not listen any further. Will try to get a refund.

Has A Secret of the Heart turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes, most definitely.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lisa Larsen’s performances?

No. Even the narration was poor. Very disappointed.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not the part that I listened to, they only mention God but don't walk it. Maybe it got better further on in the book, but I didn't listen after the rape scene, which gave too much detail and was completely unnecessary.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointing. I've liked other books by this author and was excited to see another one, but I will listen to no more. Will try to get a refund. May even cancel my membership with audible, there isn't much else good to listen to evidently.
