    Wonderful Love Story

    Do not think twice about reading this book. I am so glad I read it! I can't wait to read it a second time. It was amazing how much I could relate to Jane. The love in this book is so pure- but it's more than just love- it's also about growing up. Very well written and absolutely enjoyable.

    Excellent book!

    Jane Abigail Reeves is Little Wild Flower. Raised as a city girl; in 1977, at the age of fifteen, her father moves Jane and her entire family to a farmhouse in the heart of a rural Amish community in Indiana as a respite for her alcoholic mother. Finding life on the farm more complicated than city life, Jane shuns herself from her family and neighbors, until she stumbles upon Elijah, the Amish boy next door. As she slowly ventures out of her comfort zone, she begins to mimic her family's acceptance of Amish living, and realizes it's a practical solution for squelching the dysfunction of her family's past. Can a hippie-chick like Jane find friendship with a sixteen-year-old Amish boy despite their cultural differences? Will their feelings for each other change as they grow up?

    My thoughts...

    This is such a refreshing read, I finished it in one afternoon and LOVED it! Immediately I went online and purchased Book Two.

    It's easy to get caught up in the lives of 15 yr old Jane and 17 yr old Elijah, from the moment she sets eyes on him she is hooked and wondering how he feels about her only to find out he has had his eye on her for weeks.

    Romance and drama are nicely wrapped up in this fast paced, well written, inspiring story that keeps you anxiously turning pages in anticipation of what happens next.

    Before moving to Amish country Jane's father set down some rules to live by once they arrive at their farm. The hardest for Jane and her sister, Nadine, is no courting before age 17. This was definitely a problem or was it? Elijah and Jane's love for each other is so strong Elijah makes his intentions clear to Jane's father without hesitation.

    Even though temptation comes their relationship remains pure which I love about this book. Their devotion to the Lord is exhilarating, the characters so likeable and real you will laugh with them and cry with them.

    I give it 5 stars.

    I received an e-copy of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
