Enjoyed this book very much as well as the other books, The Quilter's Daughter and The Bishop's Daughter in The Daughters of Lancaster County series. I seem to have developed a passion for Amish novels and I found these stories to be particularly touching. While living the Amish life is certainly not easy, nor without hardship, in the world today it is nice to immerse one's self in reading about the slower, more reverend pace of life, the Amish live. I have read many of Wanda's book and look forward to enjoying more in the future!
Since the first time I read a synopsis on this book I have been intrigued to read it. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the story line and thought that the characters were all very realistic. I particularly enjoyed reading about Naomi - the main character of this book. Her story was heart breaking, but her struggle was very encouraging.
It is a reality that bad things happen to all of us at some time or other - even those who love and serve the Lord. Even when you pray it does not automatically mean that God simply fixes everything. Sometimes we don't understand, and it can cause us to feel a variety of emotions that add to the whole struggle.
However, despite the struggles, life goes on. Naomi's pursuit of a future despite the past is a very inspiring one.
The author managed to get me so curious that I landed up reading the whole series. Well done, Wanda!
As usual Wanda Brunstetter has written an excellent book. She writes a well-connected story that seems like it is about real people. As one who grew up in Pennsylvania and have had plain friends, her books are well-researched and correct in their facts concerning the Amish community. I am sure the Amish community appreciates this accuracy. I have spent many happy hours reading Mrs Brunstetter's books and this one was no exception.
