Amanda Beiler, a young woman raised Amish, is determined to make her marriage to internationally beloved Cuban singer Alejandro Diaz work. Since they spend more time apart than together, she decides to join her superstar husband in the spotlight and accompany him on his South American tour.
Despite their deep love for each other, the pressures of maintaining Alejandro’s fame and the media’s constant hounding begin to take a toll on the young couple. When someone from his past makes a startling appearance during the tour, Amanda is forced to face not only the complexities of his hedonistic past—and the unexpected responsibilities that accompany it—but also her own desire to return to a simple life rooted in devotion to family and God. As Amanda’s needs start to conflict with Alejandro’s obligations, the couple must decide if their love is strong enough to save their new marriage.
Just as the previous books in this series do, this one picks up where Plain Again leaves off. Amanda has returned to her husband's side while he is on his South American tour. In love with Alejandro, Amanda wants nothing more than to become pregnant and start a family with him. But, as pregnancy eludes her, Alejandro's secret daughter comes back into his life when he discovers that the child's mother has died.
Amanda embraces the child and grows to love her. When she realizes that a life on tour is no place to raise a little girl, she takes the child back to the farm. Alejandro struggles to accept his daughter's place in his life, but he resents it and believes he is losing Amanda's love and affections.
Alejandro has never been my favorite character and I think he's incredibly selfish and self-centered. He has improved since the first book, but not enough. The story ends with somewhat of a cliff-hanger and you must read the fifth one to know what happens. Unfortunately, the fifth one hasn't been published yet and so we're all left hanging, which you know is a huge pet peeve of mine.
