Publisher's Summary

She knits, cans jam, and lives in the city. He's an Amish college student, breaking the rules. They're so right, it's wrong.

Marigold, a recent high school graduate with a shady past, is looking to redefine herself. She doesn't know what she wants exactly, but college isn't it.

When she meets Abel, an Amish guy on rumspringa, his "running around" time, she doesn't plan on falling for someone wearing a straw hat and suspenders. But she can't help it, Abel is the breath of fresh air she's been waiting for.

Abel, who's moved to the city for a summer program at Jamestown, never imagined Marigold would be drawn to the life he was trying so hard to avoid. His family expects him to take over the family farm; college parties and dorm life don't quite fit in with their plans for him.

Opposites attract, but nothing is easy with love. When they trade places for the summer they learn a life together isn't as for sure and certain as they thought.

    Story
    "I loved everything about this story!"

    I read and listen to a LOT of Amish and/or contemporary fiction. I loved the way Anya Monroe wove both genres into one story. The depth of Marigold's character isn't seen in the first part of the book and you get to see her as she blossoms into a young lady who knows who she really is. Piper Brown did a great job as narrator. Her voices truly show her love of the characters and how they react to the problems they face. This is a book that I will For Sure & Certain(ly) listen to again!

    Piper Brown brought feeling to the story which may not have come through if you were just reading it.

    "Excellent Storytelling"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how real the characters were. These young adults share their insecurities and take you on an amazing journey at finding out who they were, who they are and who they want to be.


    What does Piper Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Piper Brown was did an excellent job bringing the various characters to life. Her narration was spot on. Her pacing, style of storytelling, it was music to my ears!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Great question. I don't know, but I can definitely see this turned into a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I received a copy of this audiobook from the author via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review. I am happy to add both the author and the narrator to my favorites list.

    Story
    "Great Narration for a Sweet Story"
    If you could sum up For Sure & Certain in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, Simple, and Complete.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abel. His transition to "city-life" was intriguing, and his character was very complete.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the first time Abel and Lily had a serious conversation; second favorite would be when Marigold decided to stay - I had already imagined her fitting in quite well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely, I laughed at multiple places and brushed back a couple tears over the course of the book. It's a really touching story, and one that I think deserves a listen (or read).


    Any additional comments?

    The depth of characters is apparent in both the writing and the narration. Piper Brown does a great job of differentiating the characters and giving them life and personality. Each voice is separate and meaningful, and it really makes the story come together and be complete.
