I'm sure it would be a more enjoyable read for younger teens, but I didn't find myself being drawn into the book. I only finished it because I wanted my money's worth.
I have enjoyed other books by this author so I thought this was a safe bet. The story was okay overall, but the novel lacked movement. I'm a sucker for a novel I can listen to over a few days, but this one made me feel like I was listening non-stop for 4 days.
Kirsten Potter is amazing and I find myself wishing I could adopt her Amish accent. I really enjoyed this book and super enjoyed the ending. I wasn't sure how it would be resolved, but I have to give major kudos to Beth Wiseman for keeping me engaged and hopeful until the very last.
The last part of the Publisher's summary says it perfectly. It's totally about restructuring your expectations and following God's path for you!
My only complaint is that so far in the series both relationships start with kissing that all parties think cannot lead to anything, shows how much they know. I'd like to see a relationship develop in a different way; where the characters show a little self control, regardless of the path God has for them.
The sample was hilarious! There were other laugh-out-loud moments, but the sample made me think the whole thing was going to be equally funny. The concept is interesting. Overall, I'd recommend saving the credit and getting a library copy.
