Katie Rose teaches at the local Amish school and is raising her brother's children after he lost his wife during childbirth. Katie has accepted that she will never be married because her beau left the Amish for the English world.
Can Zane learn what it's truly like to be Amish? Will Katie be happy with her life as a teacher and fill-in mother?
This would be a great book to start with if you are not familiar with the Amish, as the story gives a lot of information on their beliefs and way of life. There are some terrific spiritual lessons in this novel that made the storyline even better.
I give Katie's Choice 4-1/2 stars.

Thus begins his life awakening moments, refreshing warm memories of his Childhood. He grew up in a Hippie Commune with his parents. Although they died while he was still young, and he finished growing up with his Uncle in Chicago. He was brought up without knowing God, and now he is going to live with people who base their lives on God.
Just before he leaves he asks his girlfriend Monica to marry him, she hadn't given him an answer.
Arriving in Oklahoma he has no idea at all how Amish people live. I was pleasantly surprised at how well he seems to adapt. He of course, being a reporter is full of questions.
Katie Fisher has been hurt when her intended left her a few years ago. He wanted to go English. She now is the Amish School Teacher, and helps her brother with the care of his family. One thing you notice as soon as she meets Zane is sparks. We all know this cannot be, he is Agnostic and she loves the Lord. He is English and she is Amish.
I loved how the whole community comes together, and basically the acceptance of the English man, of course there is a reason behind him being there, which you will soon find out.
Enjoy this quick pace read in the Oklahoma Amish Community. I for one am so glad there is another book in this series.
I received this book through First Wild Card Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

This is a very sweet story. I didn't feel a ton of tension for most of the book, which I love to feel when I am reading, but it was a nice story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The author did have me wondering how was Zane going to come to the decision to leave the secular world and become Amish and how would he get out of his relationship with the woman he left behind before going out on assignment in Oklahoma?
A nice Genesis 5020 can be found in the book, with Zane being shot and then being assigned to this Amish story. I love how God uses those things that can make us miserable to bring us to His best for us.
Big surprises as the end that ramped up the tension for me and had me flipping the last hundred pages quickly to see how it would all work out.
Amy Lillard has created a beloved cast of characters that you will enjoy reading about, getting wrapped up in their story and make you wish to visit Amish country.
A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
