When Strangers Meet  

   
Author: BJ Hoff 

In her new colorful and captivating historical novel, When Strangers Meet, BJ Hoff returns to the town of Skingle Creek and again takes up the story of reader favorites from her Mountain Song Legacy series, Jonathan and Maggie Stuart. The Stuarts are almost immediately caught up in the lives of their new neighbors, a settlement of Old Order Amish, including Michael King, his wife, Deborah, and their family.

Another newcomer to the small Kentucky mining town is the company doctor, transplanted Irishman, Frank Kelly, whose primary reason for relocating was to search for his own healing and a measure of peace after the tragic loss of his wife. Soon, however, the physician finds himself struggling to manage a much larger and more complex medical practice than he'd anticipated. Complicating his new life is young missionary nurse Venice Montgomery, who agrees to serve as his much-needed assistant. Reluctantly drawn to the lovely Venice, Dr. Kelly is confronted with the critical choice of allowing another possible source of heartbreak to enter his life or once again uprooting himself to continue his pursuit for peace.

Will the old bridge that physically connects the new community of Amish strangers with the townspeople of Skingle Creek serve as a symbol of invitation—or division?

When Strangers Meet is a story of love, friendship, and faith—the story of a people from two starkly different cultures who endeavor to tear down the walls of suspicion and resentment that could easily divide them and instead replace those walls with a common faith in God that will ultimately unite them.
