If you enjoy reading about the Amish, you won't want to miss this awesome book that starts Cindy Woodsmall's Sisters of the Quilt trilogy. The story of Hannah Lapp, a seventeen year old from the Old Order Amish is a moving, touching, emotional, tragic and powerful tale. From the time that she secretly accepts not only the marriage proposal of a Mennonite man but all the changes that will entail with the disapproval and detachment of her family and the Old Order Amish, her story enfolds. She knew it would not be easy but one brutal act will set off a chain of events that would change her life forever.

This story is a riveting page turner from beginning to end as she faces one challenge after another. Yet through it all the thread of hope also prevails. You will definitely want to have the second book in the series. WHEN THE MORNING COMES, close at hand when you finish this one so you can continue Hannah's intriging story right away. The detail of Amish life, the cast of believable characters, the plot and her wonderful writing makes it truly amazing that this is her first novel! Great job!

A very good book with a excellent setting. It gives a lot of insight to the Amish and they way they think about things. Warning though, this book is a cliffhanger! I am still waiting for book three to come out.

A modern day, well sorta, of Romeo and Juliet in the setting of an Amish settlement.

I loved this book. I read it in one day..not because it's a short book but because I could not put it down. I can't wait to read the others. I love the main person Hannah, she is so sweet and misunderstood. I really liked reading about Amish beliefs and traditions also. You will not be disapointed, a lot happens in this book!

Very interesting novel. Cindy Woodsmall writes a captivating story about an innocent young lady who is basically punished for a crime committed to her. I am anxious to read the 2nd novel in the series. We will see a lot more of this new author in the Christian circuit. If you haven't had an opportunity to read her work, this is a great piece to start with.

Although I had not read books by Cindy Woodsmall before, I tried this one, (actually 3 stories) and am SO glad I did! It took me a while to finish it, since this is a very large book and I had much work to do, including keeping my 10 month old grandson 3 days a week. I also kept going back in it to make sure I had my characters right. I enjoy Amish books anyway, but this one is probably one of the best I've read. Very heart-wrenching!
