His Guilt

his guilt
By Shelley Shepard Gray

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray delivers the next novel in her Amish of Hart County series—a suspenseful tale of an Amish man who will risk all to protect the woman he loves.

Mark Fisher has returned home to Hart County, determined to put the past behind him. Two years ago, after being wrongly accused of assault, he left the Amish community, though never forgot his home. When the one person who had helped him through his rough times asks for help, Mark returns. But it is pretty Waneta Cain who makes him want to stay. . . .

Neeta is one of the few people in Hart County who doesn’t believe Mark is guilty of hurting anyone. However, his worldliness and tough exterior do make her uneasy. As she begins to see the real man behind all the gossip and prejudice, she wonders if he is the man for her.

Just when Mark starts to believe a new life is possible, a close friend of Neeta’s is attacked. Once again, everyone in the community seems to believe he is guilty. But what hurts most is Neeta’s sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt, a woman who is close to both Neeta and himself, Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find him before Neeta becomes his next victim?


Mark Fisher left Horse Cave under a cloud of suspicion, but returned a couple years later to help out his friend. Now he was a new employee at his friend’s nursery.

Waneta Cain was also employed at Blooms and Berries,and was uneasy with Mark’s presence. In fact, most of the town was uneasy with his presence. Just the fact that Mark was brought in for questioning before leaving town caused a lot of assumptions of quilt as the perpetrator of a violent crime was never found.

As Waneta and Mark become friends and maybe a little more, the violent acts of another once again cast suspicion on Mark. Will Waneta remain steadfast in her friendship with Mark, or will she, too, become suspicious?
