3.5 stars, really.
This is the second book in the Nellie Fisher series. I really liked how it shows a struggle of what people go through, and in this case struggles with faith and hardships that the various characters encounter. The main portion of this book is about Nellie Fisher and her beau Caleb whom she desires to marry one day. Her family is deciding to follow the New Amish Order rather than the Old one that she and Caleb are set on, but she loves how her family has been acting and changing as they read God's Word more and more. I think the saddest portions to read in this book is about Rosanna and Elias who are adjusting to parenthood after being given a set of twins they have adopted as their own.
