Good story. I love Amish books. I really enjoyed this one. Did not want the story to end. A pleasure to drive and listen. It is like watching a movie in your head while you listen. Good Job.
it was a little unbelievable but at the same time brought the thinking of two different worlds togather the division and decisions were believable the story kept my attention and it was not just another amish love story
I enjoyed listening to the characters. You became so involved with each character and how they were feeling while listening to the audio version it made you feel as if you were there. I worked in my office I found myself being helped by the advice being given in the book.
When Rebecca realizes it's in giving up what was most precious to her in order to hear God clearly she was trying to hold onto what she wanted and after obeying God she was receiving the blessings and peace in her life. The book was exciting and had me captivated and looking for the next book. I loved this book.
The reader had so much expression and did so well with discovering a voice for each of the characters that you could tell who was speaking while listening. I listen to a lot of audio books and this was one of the best.
A lesson in love and giving up of yourself and your needs for others and learning how to find your way back in your marriage when you have both been very hurt. Love and forgiveness is the key to restoring broken relationships.
Love Christian music, listening to good clean books, directing/playing handbells, love family, quilting, and clean suspense books.
I love the humbleness of the Amish. I know this is fiction, but I really desire to be more humble and rely on God more and more. I love the scripture that is constantly quoted.
A whole lot. I want to read more and more about the Amish.
Yes, to a large degree. I got just a little tired of the relationships going back and forth, but it certainly did not keep me from going on with the book.
I did not like the narration at all. Emphasis was almost nil. When someone would be in a tramatic situation, as when the girls godmother would speak, the narration just didn't meet the situation at all. I was "oh really"....I felt there should have been more dramatics in her voice/output. Was not happy at all with the narration of just this one book.
Just a great series.
Yes, I would listen again. This is a series that keeps your attention and is not hard to picture.
Rebekah was my favorite character. She showed such faith and endurance.
I think I like the part when Jessica met Jake the best
Learning to live Amish
I love books!
This book was the fourth author of Amish books I've read so a first time author for me. It was engaging and interesting although not quite as intriguing as the Cindy Woodsmall and Beverly Lewis books. This might have been better if it was the first book set in Amish lands I'd listened to. I wonder why Amish books always seems to be set in Lancasster County, PA? I know it must be the center of the Amish world. But, there are Amish in southern Iowa, where I grew up, and no one writes books set there. But Amish books are like Hallmark movies, which I like, and show a good, simple way of life with good values and give us life lessons that we could all live by, if we just would. I don't believe I could take the Amish way of life but I do find it interesting. With every Amish book I read I keep realizing that beneath that Old Way veneer there are people just like the rest of us with hopes and reams, they are human beings, too .
I really wish I could say this was a better book. I just feel like the writing was very repetitive, almost like the author was just filling space to make the book longer. I did not like the way it was narrated at all. Unfortunately, I will avoid any more books by this author and this narrator. I hope to find a similar Amish series that will be more satisfying for me. I did love the spiritual aspect though and overall found it was uplifting and positive.
