If you like historical fiction with no sex, this is a good one. It's a nice story & an easy read. Happy ending!!! Rated G!

I had never heard of the Amana Colonies until I read this book. I was amazed at how interesting their life was. I was just reading along on my NOOK and didn't even know that I was at the last page until I "turned" the page and the book had ended. What a great book!!

This was a pleasant book, without controversy or anger. Nothing intellectual will occur in this book, but it left me with a smile, on my face.

This is an excellent story about two very different people living in the amana colonies. Each chapter is from one of their points of view, first person. I really got into the characters; they seemed like real people. The next book is great as well.

I was very confused at the start of the story. The plot take forever to build. Not bad though.

I enjoyed this novel very much. It opened up a whole new people to me. Although my father and his family came from Iowa City, I had never heard of the families who lived at the Amanas. This author made them very charming and interesting. I will read more of her work.

This was a good story. I have read a book about amana before this one. It was about the families who came from new york to start the colony. So i understood when they talked of different homesteads. A good read.

A young girl coming of age book which is an Easy, enjoyable read infiltrated with references to God. The writing is decent and I would not have been disappointed if I had paid for the book.

It one thing to indoctrinate; and another to actually break one's spirit into submission! It was eye opening to read about how a young girl is draggedby her ear and made to conform to a society's norms. Keeping in mind that this is a work of fiction; the author still gives an insight into the culture. The religious stuff is overkill but I suppose if one writes about this cultural then the religion goes with it. If you are not religious, this will irk you. All the same, its a well written book and it keeps your attention.
