The Preacher's Daughter is the first in a captivating new series, Annie's People, and introduces an Amish community in Paradise, Pennsylvania - a heavenly sounding place, but one that has seen its share of heartache and mystery. A moving story of friendship, secrets, and love.
Annie Zook, the only daughter of an Old Order Amish preacher, wants to please her parents and her Plain community, but a hidden passion stands in the way. Creating art is strictly forbidden by Annie's church district. Her secret has already cost her the affection of handsome Rudy Esh. She must choose between her art and the People - the only life she knows. Louisa Stratford, Annie's longtime pen pal, is a modern Denverite who shares Annie's love of art. When Louisa escapes her own problems to go to Paradise for a taste of the simple life, will she nudge Annie closer to all she has known and loved....or tempt Annie to pursue her own dreams?
Spend some more time with Annie's People.

Aimee's choice to use a Dutch accent was EXTREMELY distracting from this work.
The book is very good, but Aimee chooses to use a "Dutch" accent in the reading of this series which is so distracting that I have to force myself to read the book. I have already read 5 of Beverly Lewis's series. I would consider this a strong deterrant to this particular series.
I love beverly lewis books. I didn't realize that I was purchasing an abridged book and not the original book. No wonder it was only 8.00. And the woman reading the book sounded like an older russian lady instead of a young Amish girl. I see that she wasn't used again in other Beverly Lewis books, thank goodness!
She sounded too old and Not Amish, but Russian
