Overview

Winter has come to Elkhart County, Indiana, and it hasn't treated Amish farmer Abram Schrock well at all. His roof collapsed, his trusted mare Goody died, and his fiancée Mary has run away to Indianapolis. Abram is content to maintain his home and watch the endless snow, but when the community pools its money to buy Abram a new horse, what seems like a simple gift creates a tangled mess as Abram discovers an abandoned boy nearly frozen to death in his barn.

Knowing it's his Christian duty to offer charity, Abram rescues the boy, Owen. Unfortunately, while he wants to return to nursing his broken heart, Abram is forced to work together with the opinionated teacher, Katherine, to care for Owen. Will Abram find his path back to God and life, or will he break down for good?

Meanwhile, Mary finds that her <i>rumspringa</i> in Indianapolis is hardly the joy and relief she thought it would be. She's lonely, and the highlight of her day is her job in a fast-food restaurant. But then she meets a rich <i>Englischer</i> couple at a library book talk, and they quickly introduce her to a whole new world of ideas and opportunities. Will Mary be taken in by all the glitter, or will she stick with her Plain Amish values? Find out in this tense tale of Amish fiction.

I truly enjoyed the book, but found what I thought was some misinformation regarding the Amish. I have spent a lot of time with the Amish families in Ohio. Also, some typing errors need to be addressed. I look fotward to reading more books by this author. This is a book that I would be proud to recommend to anyone looking for a good Christian romance about the Amish.

It was a good book. Simply written.  It only has about 200 pages not the 400 thst it shows.
