Miriam Stoltzfus once dreamed of a future with a certain man, until he jilted her. Could a forbidden romance with an Englisher thaw the "old maid" schoolteacher's stony heart?

Another book with Amish characters from Ms Brunstetter. At first I had a hard time liking Miriam- she seemed very cold and bitter- but I changed my mind as the story advanced. I did enjoy the book and plan to read the rest of the series.

As usual for me, I enjoy reading "Plain People" books. The story line is good, loved the ending. A nice relaxed reading.

This was a little different from most Christian books I've read. Miriam was not a happy person. Her first love jilted her, and she just could not put it behind her and go on. She blamed herself for so many bad things that happened that were out of her control. I really wondered if she'd ever be able to overcome all the negative feelings she had.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was just my type. This book is a lot different then most books now days, it was a good book but it was also very clean which was something I really liked about it. This book didn't have killing or any other negetive actions or words. I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.

A slow moving text of an Amish woman who struggles with keeping Christ in her heart and keeping cheerful in the midst of circumstances. The book has a good message, but is a slow and lazy read, and does not do much for entertaining the mind. Book also uses a lot of Pennsylvania Dutch Amish which was found to be difficult to understand.

Easy read but good wholesome book. I just started reading books about the Amish and really like them!
