The Guardian

Beverly Lewis is the trailblazer for Amish fiction.  I remember reading The Shunning years ago while discovering this new genre.  She set the standard for all others who endeavoured to write Amish fiction.

In this latest book, Jodi Winfield visits a local Amish community and rediscovers her own faith while learning about the Amish culture.  The story is also about Maryanna Esh, a young widow and mother of 4, who learns that she can love again.

The storyline is nice.  The setting is charming.  The people are delightful.  Even the food sounds delicious.  The middle of the book was tedious as the plot stagnated, but the ending was satisfying.  Overall, this was a good book.

Bethany House provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
