    Twenty-year-old Ariana Brenneman loves her family and the Old Ways. She has two aspirations: open a café in historic Summer Grove to help support her family's ever-expanding brood and keep any other Amish from being lured into the Englisch life by Quill Schlabach. Five years ago Quill and her dear friend, Frieda, ran off together, and Ariana still carries the wounds of that betrayal. When she unexpectedly encounters him, she soon realizes he has plans to help someone else she loves leave the Amish.

    excellent! I can't wait for the next installment

    touching - thought provoking - complex

    The Amish of Summer Grove series continues, as Old Order Amish Ariana and troubled college student Skylar face the reality that nothing about their lives is what they thought to be true. The second book in the Amish of Summer Grove series explores the changes in the Brenneman family, as Skylar joins them and Ariana navigates the foreign and undesirable Englischer world. Can she help the Nashes learn about the God she loves?

    Can't wait for the next book!!!

    Kept my interest. Great at portraying both sides of a family and their dynamics. Now I have to wait until August!

    After several months living out in the world with her birth family, Ariana Brenneman is back living in the Old Amish community that she grew up in. The shock of discovering she and Skylar Nash were switched at birth has not worn off, but both young women are regaining their footing and trying to determine what lies ahead - the Amish life or an Englischer one? Ariana must also decide if Quill Schlabach will play a role in hers or not.

    Good series but glad the legalism was put to rest.

    I have really liked amish stories, but the legalism gets super annoying and really old, so I'm glad that in this series it was put to rest. Lovable c..Show More »
