It's hard to believe this series is Shelley's first Amish writings. She is very accurate with her portrayal of the customs and their way of life. The story was very good and even though this is the second in the series, she blended the two books together beautifully. Great reading........on to book #3!!!!

Reading the first book of this series made me want to continue with this book and then the third book. The story of the Amish way of life and the characters involved was just a nice story.

This story picks up right where book #1 left off. It ties in all the characters very well! This book is about Katie Brenneman, who has "feelings" for widower Jonathan Lundy, but he doesn't seem to notice. When Jonathan's sister must travel to Indiana, Jonathan asks if Katie could come and stay with his 2 little girls and care for them while his sister is away. As all this is happening, Katie gets contacted from a friend from her past during her "rumspringa" days. She needs to deal with her past and also find a way to keep Jonathan and his girls in her future.I liked the way this book kept the whole story line going from book #1 ("Hidden). Although you got to know Katie in book #1, you didn't really understand her heart and her background. I liked the way she works her magic with the two little girls and the way Jonathan starts to notice her. It was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it, but read book one first!

Katie Brenneman has loved Jonathan Lundy for as long as she can remember. Jonathan, a widower, comes to Katie's paents to ask permission for Katie to live in his home and care for him and his children while his sister is away. Katie's parents are aprenhensive but finally allow Katie to care for the widower, his home, and his children.Katie has a dark past that she has hidden from everyone in the Amish community. During her Rumspringa (running around years) she did some things she is not proud of, eventually running home to the Amish community to hide from the English world. Katie's past has now come back to haunt her, just as Jonathan starts to fall in love with the beautiful young girl. Shelley Shepard Gray is a great writer. I love how she portrays the Amish.

This is the second story in the Sisters of the Heart series by Shelley Shepard Gray, the first being "Hidden". I really enjoyed "Hidden" and in fact I liked it so much that I preordered this book and anxiously awaited its release. I've always been initally disappointed when an author puts out a second book that does not have the same main characters as the first. I was very interested in Anna and Henry in the first book and would have loved to read another book about them. That said, I usually find myself liking the new main characters, and this book was no exception. We saw Katie briefly in "Hidden" but didn't learn much about her. This story really delves into her character. Her struggle with Jonathan and his children seems very realistic, and though the journey is sometimes tough, I think everyone will be satisfied with the ending. I would definitely recommend this book.

Maybe I have read too many of this series in order, but I found this story too trite. The main family in the Sisters of the Heart series is the Brenneman family, owners of a Bed and Breakfast Inn in Ohio. In the first novel of the series, Anna has left her "English" life and has fallen in love with Henry Brenneman. In this book, Katie must accept her "wild" year before joining the Amish church and decide if Jonathan is her future. The stories all follow a simple formula that life is in God's hand. Each story ends "happily ever after". I guess that life is not that simplistic, and sometimes the ending is not rosy.

Shelley Shepard Gray's first book, Hidden, was such a refreshing book to read that I was eagerly awaiting the release of the second book in the series. It was good to see that this was a good continuation of the first book. This time we get to see the viewpoint of an Amish girl who's had a taste of the English world but chose to come back. I liked her story because it was more focused on wanting to be loved. It just so happened that she was Amish. It was also still interesting to see how Anna is adapting to the Amish lifestyle. While she's starting to get more comfortable, it was still refreshing and realistic to see her still having trouble fully submerging to her new life. I say this, because I've read other Amish stories where I've seen people give up modern things cold turkey and slip 100% into this new culture and it comes off very fake. The only complaint I had about the book was that it felt a little short. Jonathan and Katie's romantic relationship felt a little rushed. I know that Katie had been pining for him for a while but it seemed like he resisted her for a little bit and then completely caved in. I think more tension between the two would have been interesting to read. I also would have liked more story on Katie's rumspringa. I always find it interesting to read about Amish teens who get a taste of the "English world" before they get baptized. All in all I did very much enjoy this book. It feels different from the other Amish books that are out there. More light hearted and not as dramatic. I'll be looking forward to reading Winnie's story in the next installment of the series.
