All of Brunstetter's books are awesome & this, book #4 in the Brides of Lancaster County series, is no exception!

Rachel Beachy wants something she can't have-her sister Anna's boyfriend. Silas Swartley has been in love with Anna since they were children, and Rachel has loved Silas nearly as long. Rachel feels that her swiftly moving days are spent without hope, but when Anna unexpectedly leaves the Amish faith, Rachel's hope is rekindled. She begins filling her hope chest as she initiates a campaign to win Silas's heart. Can Silas set the pain of Anna's rejection aside and see Rachel as anything more than a child? Will Rachel be disappointed in Silas and in God, or will she learn the true meaning of hope

Rachel Beachy desires and hopes for something she can't have, her sister Anna's boyfriend.
Silas Swartley has been in love with the spirited Anna since they were children, and Rachel, the tomboy, has loved Silas for nearly as long. Like Job from the Bible, Rachel feels that her swiftly moving days are spent without hope-hope of ever making Silas take notice of her.
But when Anna unexpectedly leaves the Amish faith, Rachel's hope is rekindled. She initiates a campaign to win Silas's heart and begins to fill her hope chest when she discovers how much she and Silas have in common.
Can Silas set the pain of Anna's rejection aside and see Rachel as anything more than a tomboy who is little more than a child? Will Rachel be disappointed in Silas and in God, or will she learn the true meaning of hope?
Excellent reading. Great Author..

I enjoyed reading this series but did find it lacking. It is not nearly as good as some of her other books.

Anna marries Silas's best friend Reuben who decides to go English. Anna tries to persuade Reuben to stay Amish but he does not want too. So Anna who has been baptized Amish is shunned because of her Amish baptism. REuben has not been baptized. Anna's whole family is turned upside down.

Beautiful copy!
