    Annie is a software creature and her product is in jeopardy of being stolen and if she is not careful her life could also be in danger. While trying to flee from harm she hides in the back of a truck which ends up in Amish country. She ends up in the barn owned by Rufus’s family. Even though they don’t know her Rufus and his family help her out. She is hiding out for a while and tries to keep her software and herself safe. At first Annie find the Amish way of like hard with the lack of electricity and other modern convinces but the more time she spends with them the more she starts to feel at home and to question where she is going in life. Rufus knows to keep his distance from the pretty English lady but he finds himself caring for her. Can these two over come their social differences and find love? Will Annie keep her software and herself safe?

    I was not sure how I was going to like this book when I first read the description but it turned out to be a pretty good book.

    What I liked: This book had a little of everything. Romance, Suspense, Amish and even Historical. I liked both Annie and Rufus as well at Rufus’s sister Ruth. There was also a interesting side story dealing with past relatives back in the 1700-1800 hundreds. I thought all the different angles of this story flowed pretty well together.

    What I did not like: I thought the suspense part of the story was a little weak. I expected a little more suspense at the climax but there wasn’t much. I am also going to say the idea of someone like Annie turning Amish really does not seem likely. Of course it could happen but it seems quite unbelievable to me. As much as I liked the historical side of the story and it did fit okay into the whole storyline I kind of wish it has been a book itself. I liked the characters and wish we could have spent more time with them.

    Over all this was a good book and I enjoyed it. I am interested to see where the 2nd book goes. This book is different them some I have read and think others will enjoy it as well it has something for everyone.

    As I was writing this review I came across what the 2nd book is going to be about. It appears this is going to be a 3 part series on Annie and her struggle to turn Amish which makes this book more believable. Now I am really looking forward to the rest of the series!

    Accidentally Amish isn┬┐t a typical Amish book in that the main c

    Accidentally Amish isn’t a typical Amish book in that the main character, Annie Frieson, is not Amish. Also, this work is actually 2 parallel stories interwoven into one novel. In addition to the contemporary, romantic suspense of Annie, there is a second story about Annie’s ancestors, who came to America in 1737.

    The main story, about Annie, takes the reader quickly on a chase as Annie flees from her former boyfriend and lawyer, whom she no longer trusts. Annie’s frightful flight from the city terminates in an Amish barn far from her hectic life as a software developer. There she meets the Beiler family as her world and her heart collide with the world of the Amish.

    I enjoyed reading Accidentally Amish. I like the way the stories move right along. The characters are interesting and have unique personalities. I especially like the historical story about Jakob and Verona, who along with their five children, left Switzerland and came to American seeking religious freedom. The hardships they endured with resolution, for their faith, are difficult to imagine.

    A common theme running through both stories is how to live your faith, stay true to your God and then accept the results of those decisions. The author did a great job in addressing this question.

    I am not convinced that Annie’s decisions are totally realistic, so it will be interesting to see what happens in the book that follows.
