When you find yourself between what you believe and what your being told to believe, there is bound to be confusion. Do you make your own desion or do you go with the crowd? A community should stick together right, only God knows that answer and what will be. I enjoyed this book very much, I could not put it down and i'm sure you won't be able to either.

Nellie Fisher and Caleb Yoder are the Amish version of Romeo and Juliet. But instead of their families being at literal war with each other, it's their conflicting views in religion that are driving the two apart. Nellie's family has come to accept Christ and are eager to learn more about the scriptures to the point of breaking away from the Old Order church. Meanwhile, Caleb's father forbids him to have anything to do with Nellie's family or new faith to the point of kicking his own daughter out of his house. The couple finds themselves sneaking around, seeing each other in secret. However the price of secrecy is taking a toll on Nellie and she starts to wonder if she might have to one day make a final decision with a painful choice. When you pick up a Beverly Lewis title, the reader should be aware that you are going to get lost in the story with characters you feel have become real. The Amish genre has become very popular in recent years, but Lewis has shown that she is the top name when it comes to this style of writing. It was a little tough at first to get back into the flow of the story. There are many characters with similar names so it is easy to get confused by the multiple story lines. Some of the other plots don't seem to fit in with the rest of the story. Rhoda and the automobile seem out of place, while the scenes involving the parental rights of the twins could be a whole other series in itself. These story lines help to make the community become more lively and familiar yet at the same time, it's easy for the reader to get distracted from Nellie and Caleb's story. Once again this book has really made me question about the belief of the Old Order Amish. It really seems like they are not Christians at all. If this is the case, then it is truly sad because they are denying themselves the true meaning of their faith. What good is it be living simple lives if they won't accept true salvation? Regardless, this book really makes one think about these sort of issues. This book is not a romance, it's instead a character study with lots of detail and historical fact weaved in. With a cliffhanger of an ending, one can hardly wait for the conclusion to this series. I know I'm definitely looking forward to it. Fans of Beverly Lewis will not be disappointed when reading this book.

This one is a heart-wrenching series. As Nellie Mae and the family try to deal with Suzy's death and the silent accusations of the Old Order Amish that Suzy was so wild that God punished her, and her family, because of her 'wildness' is even more than I could fathom. The ending, third book, is a real tear jerker! A must read!!!!

I enjoy reading about the gentle Amish because even in the secluded way they live their lives mirror many of the struggles of our modern society. What is different is the mind set, the heart, the way a problem is looked at from both a personal AND community wide angle. As a people they seem to try to look at the whole picture, and here Annie is so torn, so heartbroken as she clings to her beliefs. Should she venture out a bit, should she look "just beyond"? Is her own happiness worth that? What a delima! Your heart just breaks for her, your don't know what you want her to do. Ah, but the end is good, morning tea outside good. I read it twice.
