Editorial Reviews

Viki Ferrell - Fresh Fiction

Anna Schmidt takes us back to Pinecraft, Fl and her Women of Pinecraft series with this compelling novel set in this Mennonite community. It’s a story about love of family, dealing with death and anger and finding forgiveness. It’s about learning to seek forgiveness from others and to give forgiveness. In Tessa’s journal she questions what mercy is and asks if that is what forgiveness is really all about. Your heart will be blessed by this story. 
RT Book Review - Leslie L. McKee

Schmidt's descriptions are so real and raw that you can empathize with the character's emotions.
Eclectic Reading - Glenajo Shambeck

This book caused me to cry and hurt for the families as I read this realistic story about how such a devastating incident of typical teenage poor choices caused a tragedy. Christians belief that they must forgive, but it would definitely take a strong person to live through such a situation. I read this book in one sitting. I recommend this book for mostly women from teens to mature. Great read that touches the heart.

I just finished this 2nd book in series written by Anna Schmidt. It was written in a different style then 1st. In this one each chapter is told by a different main characters. Each chapter reflects how Geoff, Jeannie, Tessa, Lars, Emma, Sadie or Matt feel about situations that arise after a tragic accident leaves two families torn apart. It will.make you think about what truly are the most important things in life. God, Faith, Family and Forgiveness I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I'm excited to read what life lessons authur Anna Schmidt has instore me.

The story begins with two very close families, linked by the mothers who are sisters, on the day before school begins. Each family has a teen-aged daughter that will attend the same high school the next day. Though the mothers were raised in strict Mennonite families, they have different philosophies of raising their daughters and different choices on their lifestyles. When Sadie comes to pick up Tessa with her boyfriend, a moment of inattention causes Tessa’s death, and the resulting shock tears apart the families, marriages, and changes Sadie’s life forever. This book caused me to cry and hurt for the families as I read this realistic story about how such a devastating incident of typical teenage poor choices caused a tragedy. Christians belief that they must forgive, but it would definitely take a strong person to live through such a situation. I read this book in one sitting. I recommend this book for mostly women from teens to mature. Great read that touches the heart. Galley provided by NetGalley.
