A wonderful Series. Keeps you so interested that you don't want to lay the book down until you find out what happens next.

I'm not one that goes for the 'Amish' books, because they usually don't interest me. But I read the back of the book, and decide i'd give it a try. Well, by the second page, I was drawn into the story. The main character Kristie Matthews is a very spunky and fun character. I enjoyed reading the story through her point of veiw. The setting was of course an Amish farm, which the author described beautifully. It felt as if I was truly there. The story was pretty good, but I could tell what the ending would be, but it was still great. There's romance, suspense, humor, emotion, and prayer. I enjoyed this book quite a lot. I hope you decide to read it and enjoy it. :)

I enjoy reading fiction about the Amish because I'm a bit envious of their simple life. But I've never really looked into the theology of the Amish until reading this book. Some of the theology in here made me stop to take a look. The story was engaging and easy to read. There were moments that I had to suspend my belief, but overall it was a pleasant read.

Gayle did a great job of grabbing my attention from page one. Her characters are loaded with vivid thoughts, dynamic personalities, and quirky faults. The setting, in an Amish community, is clearly described and easy to visualize. The storyline is a page turner, but I was able to anticipate the outcome. The book is focused on Kristie Matthew, a young artist and school teacher, who doesn't fit the family mold of lawyers. Moving to live on an Amish farm is filled with wonder, beauty and a lot of flack from others. Befriending an elderly man in need, leads Kriste through a series of unexpected events with dangerous consequences. Her faith and trust in God is refreshing and ever present in her thoughts. Emotionally addicting and a lot of fun!
