Twenty-one-year-old Katie Detweiler loves to bake. When she’s hired at a local bed-and-breakfast to do just that, she’s excited, especially because the owner promises the shy young woman that she won’t have to leave the kitchen. But when her boss’s husband requires round-the-clock care, Katie is forced to wait on customers, too. Before long, a “customer” reveals himself to be a private investigator—and exposes a family secret that shakes her to the core.Twenty-two-year-old Abram Hilty has fled the drama of Shipshewana, Indiana, for Seymour, Missouri, where he’s staying with his cousin. His plan is to hide from a girl he no longer cares about—and more. Uncomfortable sharing his past and afraid of the consequences, he buries his troubles deep inside. When he meets Katie Detweiler, he is immediately attracted, but his pursuit of her is complicated by a past mistake he can’t undo.
As Katie wrestles with questions of identity, she also struggles to navigate her blossoming romance with Abram, in the face of opposition from a jealous friend. As their relationship becomes more serious, Abram realizes that he must come clean about his past—even if doing so will require him to keep his distance from Katie, for her own protection. It soon becomes clear that only the hand of God can bind them together for good.

Review:

There’s nothing like the innocence of awakening love, and Laura Hilton has charmingly captured the feeling in this Amish love story. Katie and Abram are believable characters with realistic problems, and their struggles engage the reader, keeping her turning pages well into the night. Laura has crafted yet another story I can highly recommend to anyone who craves the experience of Awakened Love.
—Robin Bayne, Author of ten novels and novellas, including Carroll Award winner The Artist’s Granddaughter

Laura Hilton has earned the right to be mentioned as a top author, and Awakened Love is proof. The story delivers a rich Amish backdrop, well-developed characters, suspense, action, and the thing that makes her an award-winning author in this genre: heart-pounding yet pure romance.
—Julie Arduini, Writer and speaker, juliearduini.com

Laura V. Hilton artfully weaves an Amish tapestry of love at first sight in this passionate vignette. As the threads of Awakened Love reveal untold family secrets, past indiscretions emerge, foreshadowing the future. Impressive, unpredictable, and breathtaking Amish fiction!
—Nancee Marchinowski, Book reviewer, http://perspectivesbynancee.blogspot.com/

Awakened Love is a love story and so much more. From stalkers to a secret adoption, Laura Hilton creates a tale that readers of Amish fiction will thoroughly enjoy.
—Beth Shriver, Author, Annie’s Truth and Grace Given

Laura V. Hilton has once again created a wonderfully engrossing story that clearly shows how forgiveness, acceptance, and faith can bring love to its fullest potential.
—Linda Maran, Author, Confronting the Bully of OCD

I tried reading Awakened Love a chapter or two at a time, so I could make it last. However, today, I just could not make myself stop. Laura had me so deep in the story, cheering for the couple and crying with Katie, that I had to know how it ended. Some of the books I have read lately have gotten to be a chore, but this one was not. I enjoyed it from the first lines to the last word. I hope we can visit Webster County again with Laura.
—Christine Simmons Bonner

In this a wonderful, character-driven tale full of uncertainties and doubts, Ms. Hilton takes the story of a plain young Amish girl who is unsure of herself and turns it into a wonderful romance. I always look forward to Laura’s books because I never know what is going to happen next.
