Publisher's Summary

Twenty-year-old Ariana Brenneman loves her family and the Old Ways. She has two aspirations: open a café in historic Summer Grove to help support her family's ever-expanding brood and keep any other Amish from being lured into the Englisch life by Quill Schlabach. Five years ago Quill and her dear friend, Frieda, ran off together, and Ariana still carries the wounds of that betrayal. When she unexpectedly encounters him, she soon realizes he has plans to help someone else she loves leave the Amish.
Despite how things look, Quill's goal has always been to protect Ariana from anything that may hurt her, including the reasons he left. After returning to Summer Grove on another matter, he unearths secrets about Ariana and her family that she is unaware of. His love and loyalty to her beckons him to try to win her trust and help her find a way to buy the café - because when she learns the truth that connects her and a stranger named Skylar Nash, Quill knows it may upend her life forever.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ties That Bind?

The last scene with Arianna in the cafe and leaving with Nicholas and Brandi. She finds peace in seeing that she can be God's instrument of grace for them.

Which character – as performed by Stina Nielsen – was your favorite?

Stina did a wonderful job on all of the characters, but Arianna is my favorite. I will be looking for more books narrated by her.

I loved this book!

Cindy Woodsmall just has a way of touching every human emotion with her books and Ties That Bind is no exception. I didn't want to stop listening! The few times I had to take a break, I was almost mad because I wanted to know what would happen next. The narrator does an excellent job capturing the heart of each character. You won't be disappointed!
