I really loved this part of this short series. I admire Allan's courage and tenacity throughout this part of the story. Not many people I know would make the sacrifices that he has... I can't wait to see what happens in part 3. I recommend this to anyone interested in the Amish way of life :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Allan moves his family into a new life. On the day of their arrival, their prized possessions are taken away and put into storage. They are left with the bare minimum. His teenage kids quickly discover what life is like in the Amish community. They rebel and refuse to participate. They don¿t want anything to do with the change. They can¿t see past how unfair their new living situation is.
Allan can only stay strong. He wants to save his family and his marriage. His family are more like strangers. They don¿t spend any time together.
Allan is chosen to be the new teacher at the schoolhouse and he is determined to be accepted by the Amish community, his family, and himself. Allan was in search of a completely change of his life and family.
I found this book to be a heart-warming story of family, bonding, understanding, and acceptance. Not only did Allan learn more about himself, but his entire family learned how to adapt.
