The Captive Heart by Dale Cramer

"The Captive Heart" by Dale Cramer is another 5 star book. It is the second book in The Daughters of Caleb Bender series. More families comes to Paradise Valley and the daughters of Caleb Bender are having more babies and even Rachel and Jake Weaver are planing to marry and yes even Miriam is engaged but then illness comes and threatens death to little Amos and Ada. So Rachel and Aaron Bender take them to the dr. in Agua Nueva and they get well only to run into the bandits on the way home and Aaron is harmed and Rachel is kidnapped and Ada knows enough to depend on God to get little Amos home to Mary, His mother. Jake and Domingo goes to save Rachel and runs into their own trouble with the bandit. I love the fact that Miriam and Kyra rescued Domingo and bring him home.  This book keeps you reading and you think the worse has happened only to find out it hasn't. The ending is Great but is surprising! I can't wait to read the next book Though Mountains Fall to get some questions answered like what happened to the lead bandit El Pantera and if Miriam is banned. I think even if you didn't like reading Amish fiction this series would keep you reading it. Even through it is fiction it is based on a real chapter in Dale's ancestors' lives. And when I was reading Dale Cramer's blog I found out Levi's Will is about this same family a generation later so I will be reading this book also.
