This Book one of three kept me guessing. Nellie meets the love of her life and it is threatened by changes in the rules the Amish set up for daily living. This is one of the better books by Beverly Lewis; although I have not read one by her I did not like.
This is the 2nd book of three in the series, "The Courtship of Nellie Fisher. The first book begins in 1966 and this book starts in 1967. Beverly Lewis describes a time in an Old Order Amish Community that is seeing changes as some people are finding salvation, (a source of contention among the Old Order), and are wanting to change their life accordingly. Love and loyalty are tested as losses are experienced and relationships strained. Quick read.
