The Gifted, by Ann H. Gabhart. Jessimine was brought to the shaker villiage years ago after her grandmother who was raising her passed away. She loves the only family she really knows, but has so much trouble staying out of trouble. She is just so drawn to the outside world and feels her "prince" is out there waiting for her. When her and a fellow sister find a man thrown from a horse and wounded it is there responsibility to bring him to their village to get care for him. Only Jessimine finds herself falling for this stranger who can't remember who he is. He draws her even more to the outside world, but once out there Jessimine isn't sure she can really handle it.
I love Ann H Gabhart's books! I have read other books by hear and love them all, this one is no exception. You know you have a talented writer in a book that draws you into the emotions and conflict of this young woman. It was a book I didn't want to put down, it captured my heart and kept it there! A definite must read!!.
