Meek and Mild by Olivia Newport (review by Kristi)

This was an Amish fiction book quite different from any others I have read. It takes place in the early 1900's and tells of the events that led to the what is known as the "Beachy Amish". Historical aspect aside this book had a good storyline with Clara being afraid to go through childbirth because of her mother dying during it. There was a sweet love story between Clara and Andrew that drew me to both characters. There are some unlikable characters as well but they are part of the story and were well written in their roles. Olivia Newport did a great job of combining the history with other storyline to make the book an interesting read. I would recommend this book to anyone who is wanting a different kind of Amish story and to those who are maybe looking for Amish fiction with history in the story. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
