    Needs Work

    This series was the first I have downloaded so I am not sure if it is an eBook problem or the publisher's but these manuscripts needed to be better proof read and edited. Grammatical mistakes such as noun/verb agreement, tense, use of pronouns and sentence structure often interferred with the flow and readibility of the story line. The plots were simple and somewhat overly predictable but the underlying theme, typical in Amish-subject novels, was enjoyable and made for light, quick reading.
