Beverly Lewis is an author who never disappoints. She always has a unique story line - not just your standard love story -- this book has several interwoven plots and well-developed characters. I always learn something new about the Amish culture from her books. Can't wait for the next book in this series.

If you haven't read this one from Beverly Lewis you are missing out. Once I got started on this one I could not put it down! There is always a secret involved that makes you wonder what will happen next. Her characters always have a major decision to make in their lives. Highly recommended!

I absolutly LOVED this book. I picked it up for something to occupy my time on a plane ride home but I never anticipated to get hooked. Now I HAVE to read the second book. READER BEWARE: Extremely addictive!

I truly enjoyed reading this book. Beverly Lewis has done an excellent job creating a romance between a couple that love God first & then each other. While creating a backdrop for their courtship, she explains rituals & rules. I finished this book with an incredible desire to read the next books to follow.

This is a sweet, gentle story with believable characters and an interesting plot. Although it's classified as religious fiction, and does certainly have a strong Christian theme, I didn't feel like the author was creating a story with the sole purpose of shoving religion down my throat. Books 2 and 3 weren't available on PBS so, within a couple of hours of finishing it, I had purchased them on Amazon. That's saying a lot about how good the story is, as I am a cheapskate and seldom purchase books that aren't on clearance.

An Amish village is stirring in the mid 1960s with people being drawn to a new gospel that goes against the Ordnung teachings.

Nellie is grieving her sister Suzy's death, as is the rest of her family. She has had a crush on Caleb for a long time and he seems to be drawn to her lately. Nellie bakes goods on a regular basis at her own little store. She is very into the Old Order and cannot fathom why there are sudden changes in some of her own family members towards the reading of scriptures that she has never heard and praying directly to God as if personal, without a rote involved.

This book took me a while to get into, but halfway through it was so good and I liked it and would have tears forming in the corners of my eyes!

I really enjoyed this book and the entire series. It was a wonderful glimpse into the mysterious world of the Amish. The complex and many characters in the book kept the story colorful and intriguing.
