Mattie Riehl never expected her life to turn out this way. Raised Mennonite and among Amish friends in beautiful Lancaster County, she should be perfectly content, shouldn't she? But something inside beckons her to another world, another life. Can she leave her roots and her friends behind for a world she knows little about? Will she abandon everything, including the god her parents have taught her to follow?
Englisch on Purpose is the prequel to J.E.B. Spredemann's award-winning book Amish by Accident and is the story of Elisabeth Schrock's best friend, Mattie.

I got this book via audiobook boom. I read book 3 before reading this one so I basically understood what was going on. The narrator did a good job of moving the story along. I believe that the books need to be listened to in order in order to get a full sense of the story. Although they can each be read as stand alone books.
Felt like it was more suited to a younger audience.
Mystery and suspense
Yes. Good diction and cadence.
No. For a younger audience.

Reader had very little pitch and tone invert voice. Ending left you completely hanging. Book seems
very simplistic. The few description words were at about a forth grade level.
Englisch on Purpose: A Prequel to Amish by Accident
: J. E. B. Spredemann
A story of a young woman's journey to discovering what she wants in life. There was sadness and lack of faith to deal with.This is not the sticky, gooey sweet Amish romance. I want to hear the rest of the series.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Kay L. Dees reading was way too slow for my taste. I put it on my Kindle and doubled the speed to make it more listenable for me.
