    Great Amish Fiction Read! I wasn┬┐t even at the end of the fir


    Great Amish Fiction Read!


    I wasn’t even at the end of the first chapter of this book before my eyes welled up
    with tears.  I found this book to be filled with twists, turns, and surprises.  
    This book is so different from your normal Amish read and I liked it.

    I found the orphaned boys to be simply adorable, fun loving, pranking, boys.  
    They will quickly capture your heart.

    Raven has most assuredly been through a lifetime of hurts.  Will she learn to love
    and trust again?  Will she allow God back into her life?  More importantly can she
    forgive?

    It is amazing how loving, caring, people can change your life.  I loved how open
    and caring Jim and Marilyn were.  The love they have for children and adults alike
    is truly a gift from God.  

    The Yoder family will tug on your heartstrings too.  Such love and dedication they
    have for one another and others too.

    This book was enjoyable to read, tears and all.  If a book doesn’t make me cry,
    happy or sad tears, it isn’t a good book in my opinion.  I had lots of tears reading
    this one!

    This is the first book I have read by author Karen Anna Vogel.  I’m excited to say it
    won’t be the last.

    I highly recommend this great read!  It gets 5 stars from me!
