Over the years, I have read MANY Amish novels written by many different authors... some in different genres (suspense/mystery/romance/comdey/etc). While this is not the first book I've read by Laura V. Hilton... it is my favorite so far and it won't be the last!! I COULD NOT put the book down and go to sleep last night!! Seriously, I started the book early yesterday morning, and of course, had life to live between readings, but finished it at 1:15 this morning. It was THAT GOOD!
About the Book: (from Amazon.com)
About the Author:
Laura is an award winning author, a pastor's wife, married over twenty-five years and has five children. She homeschools, writes book reviews and books, Patchwork Dreams, A Harvest of Hearts and Promised to Another.
As I said at the beginning of this post, I really enjoyed this book. I read somewhere else that someone thought it was predictable.... and while there are parts you HOPE will turn out a certain way, Laura keeps it to where to you really don't KNOW that it'll turn out that way. If I had KNOWN whether or not it would work out, I would not have stayed awake until the wee hours of the morning to figure it out.
I think part of the reason I enjoyed this book so much is that it wasn't your average, normal Amish story, but it did have all the parts of a good Christian romance -- a handsome, SWEET guy, a likable girl and circumstances that seem daunting. It was the best Amish book I've read in a while!! I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
