This book is quite easily my favorite by Sarah Price. I have read several of her books and enjoyed them all but this one grabbed me at the first page and didn’t let go until the last word had been read. This book could very well be used as a textbook on how to write great Amish fiction.
I immediately felt a connection to the main characters in this book. They were easy to relate to and care about. The characters, even the not so nice ones, were well developed. The storyline was great. The reader can easily see it was well thought out and executed. The story moved along nicely and had a good flow to it. The book carries a good message and is well delivered. The author did a great job of writing about the topics of abuse and depression without the book being a dreary or depressing read. I think a lot of people believe the Amish don’t have to deal with these issues and it was nice to see how they are just the same as everyone else and how they dealt with the struggles they were faced with. I am hoping there will be a sequel to this book as I would like to read more about this family and community.
This is a great read and if you are a fan of Amish fiction (or just really good books) you should pick up a copy today. This is one for the “keeper” shelf!
I received a free copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
