    This book is classified as Young Adult Christian (Amish) Fiction

    This book is classified as Young Adult Christian (Amish) Fiction, but would easily be enjoyed by adults as well. It is a quick easy read that will keep you turning the pages as the story unfolds. The author begins each chapter with a scripture that becomes the theme of that chapter, which makes it ideal for teaching the relevance of scripture in our everyday lives. I especially like the way the truth of scripture is used within the story to stress that salvation is a gift through God’s grace alone, rather than anything we can merit on our own.
    Joanna is a young Amish girl who is the victim of abduction. Feeling alone and afraid, she tries the only thing she can think of to get away. But will her plan work?
    Being brought up in the Amish church, she knows that forgiveness is necessary, but can she find it in herself to forgive this man for this violation that continues to haunt her?
    Ever wonder what impact your actions have on other people? Joanna’s abductor has had a great impact on her life, but what impact will she have on his?
    Prayer, friendship, Bible study, forgiveness, courage and freedom are interwoven into the story line to develop the reader’s Christian character. I would highly recommend this book, and I look forward to the remaining books in the Amish Girls Series.
    My special thanks to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions stated within this review are mine, and no further compensation has been made to obtain a positive review.

    Another sweet story in the Amish Girls Series.  While this book

    Another sweet story in the Amish Girls Series.  While this book is part of a series, it is a delightful book that stands alone.  As always, author J.E.B. Spredeman has created a story that leaves the reader with a gentle, peaceful feeling.  The book is listed as a young adult/teen fiction book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. I enjoy Amish fiction and J.E.B. Spredemann is a master at creating stories that depict the Amish life and their faith.  I would recommend this book to others who enjoy this genre.  I have read other books by this author and really enjoy her simple, down to earth writing style.

    I was given this book to review and was very happy about it. It is a wonderful story for a young teen or tween about the power of prayer and family. It is not a long book but grabs your attention from the very first page.

    In today's world, with teen role models growing scarce, J. E. B.

    In today's world, with teen role models growing scarce, J. E. B. Spredemann has written an endearing tale of teenage girls who struggle with life among the Amish and Englisch world.   Joanna finds forgiveness in the first book in the Amish Girls Series.   I would highly recommend this book to teens and adults alike.    A local Mennonite woman leads Joanna and her family on a new and glorious past and readers will delight in finding the same path for themselves.
