ABOUT THE BOOK

From the beginning to the end, this book had me. I always love a good amish story but get a little stuck on the same authors. I've only read a couple of Shelley Shephard Gray's books and she is definitely moving up the ladder of favorite Amish authors.
I love how she made clear the struggles of being Amish, the struggles of wanting what the Englishers have. We all know even the Amish are only human with the same struggles anyone else has, lies, deceit, babies out of wedlock, losing spouses, desease... Shelley covers it all. The question is do the Amish handle those issues like I do? Do they turn to God of guidance? Do they give in to the temptations? You'll have to read this one to find out.
