A very different type of Amish fiction! I've never read such a suspenseful, intense mystery story that centered around Amish characters. It was a VERY difficult book to put down! Nicely written, and the perfect amount of details. And the end is somewhat shocking, very unpredictable (which I really like). It's a refreshing read for typical readers of Beverly Lewis. I love Beverly Lewis, but this was very different, yet just as good. In some ways, better than Beverly Lewis. Well done, Colleen Coble!
