WANTED by Shelley Shepard Gray (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Twenty-year-old Katie Brenneman has always fancied Jonathan Lundy. So when the heartbroken widower asks her to help him take care of his two young girls, Katie knows it will be tough—yet she cannot pass up an opportunity to get to know this man better.
Just as she’s settling into her new life, a message arrives from her past, threatening to expose her darkest secrets. During her “running-around years,” she experimented with activities forbidden in the Amish way of life. Frightened by how far she’d strayed, Katie ran back home, vowing to cut all ties with the outside world. Now her transgressions are coming back to haunt her, just as Jonathan seems willing to welcome her into his heart.
Will the past destroy Katie’s chances for love? Or will Katie allow herself to accept God’s love, forgive her past, and receive everything she’s ever wanted?
