This is A. from Texas:
I love this book. It is such a great book full of detail that the author spent a lot of time researching about the Amish. To bring a story from the Amish life and mix it with the outside life, it was put together so well.
It is hard for any parent to let their child experience things on their own, but with the Amish and their Rumspringa, I could imagine the feelings and emotions that go thru them. Hannah was a great mother to Jessica and it hurt that Jessica wouldn’t open up about the things happening while she was out. Later in the book, we find out the real reason Jessica COULDN’T tell her mom.
I am very happy that it turns out Thomas wasn’t as bad as he was. For a little while, I thought Thomas was in leagues with the bad guys but turns out, he was actually helping his niece and wanting to find out what happened with her. That isn’t what Amish naturally do so it was really good to see that he did care but couldn’t show it quite yet.
As for Elijah, I am glad his father finally respected and was proud of him for choosing to be a cop. Elijah wanted to be a cop after a childhood incident. To have God’s way make a full circle for him was truly heartwarming. Hannah was right to be in love with him.
Like the author, I, too love learning about the Amish and their ways. To have it come together definitely made this book one terrific read.
THANKS TO ALL THE READERS FOR THW WONDERFUL REVIEWS!!!! I AM SO GRATEFUL!
