Once again, Beverly Lewis includes just enough of the big mystery to draw readers into book 2. WHEN WILL IT BE OUT? This book introduces the Zook family, Annie's own. For years now, Annie has had an outsider pen pal who, for reasons all her own, has now reached out to the simple life of the Amish. Louisa is a big part of this book, and gives advice to Annie that most readers may find out of character for an outsider. Both girls have a secret, Annie is drawn to a forbidden activity and Lou is running from an unbearable relationship. Spoiled and very rich, Lou's life is a complete opposite of Annie's, yet they become best of friends when finally they meet. Beverly has introduced several families who will no doubt play an important role in subsequent books, a family with an abusive Amish husband, and an outspoken relative's family who is Mennonite and seems to have tremendous influence on the community plus a new young man who I am just positive will be a huge part of book 2. I enjoyed this book and would have given it 5 stars had I not already consumed so many of Lewis' books and this one is just a tad bit less grabbing and consuming, still, I am going to be watching for book 2 in this series, Annie's People. Thank you Beverly.

UNCHALLENGING, SIMPLISTIC BOOK

This is an unchallenging, rather simplistic book, good enough to amuse but nothing more. The idea is there, the background is there, the knowledge is there and yet something rather bland comes out of it. It could've been better, more moving, more real. This story is ok...
This is an unchallenging, rather simplistic book, good enough to amuse but nothing more. The idea is there, the background is there, the knowledge is there and yet something rather bland comes out of it. It could've been better, more moving, more real. This story is okay if you don't expect much and don't care for layered characters.

    Too much jumping around

    I liked the book but I thought it jumped around too much from subject to subject, still I want more. I want to hurry and connect the peach seed with Zeke's missing brother and to see Annie and Ben fall in love.
