Great job on her first novel. I have read several Amish fictional books, and I would certainly say she keeps up with the best of the other authors I have read. This is the first book of what I believe to be a series of 3. Very quick and easy read!

This book is great for people that are completely unfamiliar with the Amish lifestyle. It provides a good story along with the main tenants of the Amish faith because the main character, Lillian, has to learn everything about the Amish lifestyle from the ground up. While the story is not much different than other Amish stories currently available, I did like that the daughter born to an Amish woman found herself joining the Amish community after years of not knowing much about her Amish family. However, I wish more of her backstory had been explained with the boyfriend she left behind because of his controlling and abusive nature.

All in all, a very good read, and a great start to what I'm sure will be an excellent series.
