If you love the Amish fiction from the other big author but have read all her books, this is a good second. I read this book very quickly as it held my interest and I really did enjoy the characters. Really anything Amish will interest me. If you come from a childhood where you were not loved by your father, the way the relationship ends between a father and daughter in the story may help heal you; or may just really upset you even more. Also, if you grew up with a lot of younger siblings you will relate to this book well, regardless of your beliefs.
Time appears to stand still in Naomi Fisher's Pennyslvania Amish community...But she's running out of time to correct a terrible mistake. Naomi was content with her life until her mother died in an accident,her somber father needed her to tend the family store every day... until her "English" friend showed her how confining her life had become. Then her heart started to long for romance.
When Naomi turns her back on one basic duty, the uknthinkable happens-and now she feels unworthy to accomplish anything set before her. How can she escape the weight on her spirit that paralyzes her emotions? Is there any redemption for such a failure?
Excellent reading. Very good book from beginning to end.
Excellent book about the Amish way of life and the feelings that a young woman goes through with all the things that happen to her family.
