Overview

Annie joined the Amish church based on prayerful conviction, not romantic dreams. And yet, she can’t deny she’d hoped to share her new, plain life with Rufus. Neither can she deny that his ways are nothing like the fast-paced culture she left behind—Rufus is obviously in no hurry. When he makes unexpected choices about his work, Annie wonders if he has lost interest in the love that sparked between them.

While arson threatens trust in the peaceful southwestern Colorado valley nestling Westcliffe, Annie resolves to keep a confused Amish teenage girl from decisions that could bring down her future. Ruth, Rufus’s sister, is Annie’s temporary roommate while she navigates the muddy waters of shifting family relationships, career choices, and an irresistible romance with the persistent Elijah.

Family history clearly shows it’s never been easy living a plain life in the English world. Will the changes and challenges Annie now faces as a young Amish woman test her newfound faith in good ways or bad? And how long will Rufus test her patience?

Editorial Reviews

LoveMy2Dogs - Tammy Graham

The story line of Annie and Rufus and their families is a very enjoyable one, even with the little twists in the book. Their faith is so strong that I am some time amazed at this and I am amazed at how trusting and forgiving their faith has taught them to be.
Reader's Favorite - Kristie Ingerto

I am a huge fan of Olivia Newport’s work as she has the ability to bring her characters to life, and not only are they enjoyable to read about, but they are so easy to relate to as well. Taken for English is an excellent addition to the Valley of Choice series, but I really encourage everyone to read the books in order as you might miss out on bits and pieces of the story and what has happened to get the characters to where they are at now.
All About Romance - Maggie Boyd

As always Ms. Newport does an excellent job of showing us the Amish way of life without disparaging our own. I really appreciate the way she showcases how the two worlds interact and how impossible it is for one not to be influenced by the other.

Meet the Author

Olivia Newport’s novels twist through time to find where faith and passions meet. Her husband and two twentysomething children provide welcome distraction from the people stomping through her head on their way into her books. She chases joy in stunning Colorado at the foot of the Rockies, where daylilies grow as tall as she is.
