Daniel Schrock and Aiden Cermak have forged a life in the rural Montana foothills, but a shadow still lingers, made stronger when a letter arrives from Daniel's brother Mark inviting him to his Christmas wedding. Daniel fears returning home might force what he wants to avoid: telling his family about Aiden and facing the dreaded Amish shunning.
Despite the uncertainties, Daniel and Aiden head to Illinois, where frustration will not only endanger Daniel’s relationship with his family and the church community, but his bond with his boyfriend, who leaves Daniel with a choice: him or the Amish. Before Daniel can stop Aiden, he’s gone… and threats from the past resurface, crystallizing Daniel’s fears about a murderer still at large.
As he desperately searches for Aiden and the identity of the suspected killer, Daniel will have to decide if love is important enough to risk losing everything he knows. Will Daniel choose to keep his commitment to the Amish church or will he stand by the promise he made to Aiden that first night they made love?
Between Two Promises was both inspiring and heartbreaking. The author had my throat tightening with emotion for both Aiden and Daniel. Even without reading the first installment "Between Two Worlds," the story never made me feel like I was missing anything thanks to the author's subtle recaps. There were some environmental descriptions with a bit more detail than I, personally, would have liked. Some of the vocabulary for character descriptions were a bit repetitive as well, but otherwise a great story.
