WOW - hard to believe this is a debut novel. LOVED it. I wept with Hannah, I felt her denial, her fears, her loneliness. The plot for this story would have played out well in any setting but to have it set in a "plain" community makes it all the more heart wrenching.
I liked this book better than any of the Beverly Lewis or Wanda Brunstetter books that I have read. Can't wait to read the next 2 books in the series.

Cindy Woodsmall is an amazing new author!

I loved the new air that was breathed into the Amish setting in this book. It is not your typical type of book about Amish life, love, and resolve. Instead this book goes into some of the other topics of life and answers some additional questions that many readers would have about Amish lifestyle. I think that this book is amazing! I cried, cheared and was blessed by the story in this amazing new book.

I can't wait for the next one in this series, "Sister's of the Quilt".

This is one book I could not put down. I was reading it at red lights while transporting my kids to and from school (I had them watch for when the light turned green, ha!)

I highly recommend it, it was excellent!

THis was a great read. I had a hard time putting it down and was disappointed to have to wait for the other 2 in the series to come out. This is a book that makes you cry and was well written.

This book was wonderful. This girl endured so much and yet stood strong. I felt her heartache every step of the way. Just ordered the second book. Can't wait to read it.

Cindy Woodsmall is my favorite Amish genre author. She weaves a wonderful tale and her characters are well developed and her plot keeps me fully engaged and wanting to get to the end quickly!
