Great Book

I really like this book. It was a fast moving story that caught my attention right away, and once I started I couldn't put it down. Jenny is a very likable character, and a person that most woman can relate to. She has almost the perfect life that she has always wanted....
I really like this book. It was a fast moving story that caught my attention right away, and once I started I couldn't put it down. Jenny is a very likable character, and a person that most woman can relate to. She has almost the perfect life that she has always wanted. She is married to her childhood sweetheart, has 3 children and is almost completely adjusted to the Amish way of life. Jenny didn't grow up Amish but spent time with her Amish grandmother, this is how she meet Matthew the love of her life. But due to circumstance out of her control Jenny doesn't marry Matthew when they are young, instead she goes out into the world. After an accident Jenny goes home to her grandmother to recuperate. This is when she finds Matthew again, and they fall in love all over again. But Matthew had already been married, and had 3 children with his wife before she passed away. So while Jenny loves Matthews children as her own, they are Matthews and Amelias. This is brought front and center when Jenny learns that they could have been hers, if only someone didn't interfere with her life. This story of how Jenny learns of this, and how she learns to let go of the past, and to forgive those who made choices for her. She learns to really love what she has, as she almost looses it. This is a great story that shows you that it is important to value what you do have, don't go looking for what might have been accept that you are right where you are supposed to be. Trust in God to lead you where you need to be, he will provide for you and make sure that you are in the right spot at the right time.Because lets say that Matthew and Jenny did marry when they were younger, they might not be at the same place in their lives and marriage right now if that had happened.
DISCLAIMER: I was given a free copy of the book for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

Between all the kids using this as a chat room, the kids roleplaying and the plot spoilers, there is hardly any real reviews.

    A Repetitve Waste of Time and Money

    I've never written a review before, but I just had to write one on this book because it was so terrible. I had read the first 2 books and thought they were OK, easy reads, that were somewhat entertaining -- entertaining enough that I thought it was worthwhile to read this one, too.

    I was totally wrong. This book just repeated almost all of the events in the previous books. Then, for any new events (which were totally predictable), it had to repeat the characters feelings on those over and over.

    If the book hadn't been only about 160 pages (minus the preface, glossary, and questions), I wouldn't have bothered finishing it.

    Don't waste your money. It was FREE when I got it and even 99 cents wouldn't have been worth it.

    This is a sweet, wholesome Amish story, but I cannot believe how poor the writing is. The author gets the names of characters mixed up and seems to lose track in some scenes. She suddenly starts calling the little boy, Luke, by the name Joshua. And at one point Chris and Matthew are having coffee at the kitchen table when suddenly one of them "kicks a clod of dirt" as if they are walking through a field. Beautiful story, terrible writing.
