This is the second book in the Ada's House series and is an excellent read. I enjoyed reading this book as much as the first one. I thought this was a sweet story about a young woman who has a scar on her face and doesn't believe she'll find love, along with teaching an older student in her class. I loved how the characters are connected and brought back from the first story. I would definitely recommend to others to read.

"The Bridge of Peace" by Cindy Woodsmall is the second of the Ada's House Novel series. This story continues the story of the Old Order Amish families and how they interact with the outsiders or English. There are several issues introduced in this book including Cara's desire to become Amish so she can marry her Amish sweetheart. Across the road, Lena, the school teacher has problems with an older student and his family. Lena has a birthmark on her face that she thinks keeps men from looking at her. And another family, Grey and Elise are dealing with marital issues. All these problems are common but seem more complicated by the Amish ideal and rules.

While I enjoyed the story it was hard to remember all the characters and their history. After a few chapters I was up to speed, but a little summary at the beginning would have been helpful.

The basic conflicts are resolved in a godly way thoughout the book and I felt that the characters communicated well, but often after many hurt feelings and misunderstandings.

Book #3 is to be released in Fall 2011. I will be ready to see how it is all resolved.

I received this book from Waterbrook Press free of charge for review purposes. All views expressed are my own.
