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.

Deeply moving and unforgettable, Between You and Me is an emotionally complex story of love and loss, family and friendship, and the arduous road to discovering the heart’s true path.

Wow. What an emotional ride.

First, I will tell you the romance is subtle and the sex is fade to black, but the heart of this book is everything.

Susan Wiggs brings a story of faith, love, community, and understanding within the Amish culture, while also revealing the flip side which can sometimes be unwavering, challenging, cruel, and merciless in thought and beliefs.

Between You and Me is a fantastic way to spend a summer afternoon. My heart was broken and put back together several times. It's a sad story, yet filled with hope. It also gives outsiders a better understanding of the Amish culture and belief system. I found myself becoming so frustrated about this group of people who can be simultaneously so kind yet so cruel.

Powerful and sweet are the best words I can use to describe this novel.
