Editorial Reviews

Charlie Courtland
Growing up in the midwest I loved the style and tone of the story and scenery. No purple prose or overly nostalgic desrciptions, but rather a simple and honest protrayal of daily life. Each character is original and thoughtfully developed. I wholeheartedly enjoyed this Amish tale and believed the contrast between the Plain and English,but also how it's possible to live together. The story is not overtly religious but focuses on the complexities of relationships and old fashion romance and values
