Overview

Charlotte Miller has been boarded up in her home for sixteen years because of a mysterious illness. To make things worse, the year is 1917, and alcohol has come to Bloomington, Indiana creating new problems for the Amish and Mennonites.
Six weeks after she learns that the disease is in remission, her mother and sister are killed, thus leaving her fending for herself.
Her alcoholic uncle is in full swing with his saloon buddies, and during hard times, many residents, even former Amish, consider alcohol as a way out.
However, a secret letter from the past shows that the women had started praying for alcohol to leave Bloomington on the day that it arrived. Could their prayers be answered?
Could an Amish candy man spark a new life for Charlotte, all while he deals with bitterness over family secrets of his own?

Too many errors to make reading enjoyable. Some continuity problems. Names of characters are mixed up. I have other books by this writer but could not finish because of errors. Needs a proofreader.

I couldn't even get past the first 20 pages!   I usually try to be tactful in my reviews however all I can say is DO NOT waste a second on this book!  I wouldn't even give this book one star if it wasn't required!!!!

The book is 97 pages and the hero, who has been locked in her home for sixteen years because of an illness, learns to garden, preserve the harvest, and have faith through hard times just the Amish do, and she cooks on a wood-burning stove, uses oil lamps, and knits beautiful homemade garments. I do not understand about the previous review, as it was way off on how this book read and on how many pages the book was, for it was 97 pages.

I love Amish fiction but this book was unreadable for me. It reads like a composition by a 4th grader. I could not finish it.

Though the story line is a cute one, there are so many errors that make it difficult to read. There are sentence structure errors. Conuity problems, where your in one place then in another. The characters personalitys change. Then it ends in a hurry. At times it feels like part of the story is missing. I did enjoy the story line and with a little editing it would be a special book.

While the book is quite amish it feels like my nine year old would write it better. It skipped and left things out causing some confusion. Gotta get me some Beverly Lewis now.

BAD BAD BAD! So poorly written that I think a child wrote it. Repeats itself over and over that she was ill and kept inside for sixteen years because her uncle put a hair growth solution on her when she was an infant. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

Not well written and contrary to tenants of the Amish faith. More research, more character building and editing would help

Got it for free. Would not have been happy if I paid for it. Very disjointed. 207 pages on Nook ST.

It was the worst amish book that i have ever read. It was only seventy pages but it was so bad it was hard to finish. The characters did not really act amish.

I agree with all the other reviews. Was stunned that this person had written other books. This read ore like it was writing by a child. Needs a proof writer. Very repetitive. Just a badly written book.

Horrible....story mixed up, characters are strange and change personality and pop up where they dont belong. Not really an amish story. A 9 year old could have written this better. Do not buy this.

Good storyline, but it apparently never got proofread- there were many mistakes

Started off slow. I found it unbelievable. Very juvenile. Is it an original idea? Twin sisters seperated ar birth? It's been done too many times.
