The formula and setting for the story had great potential and could have been amazing, but it didn't deliver for me. Although I enjoyed the Amish setting, and a lot of the situations presented could have been delightful. I hate it when you "head hop" jumping around from character to character knowing what everyone is thinking and why, along with every conversation. Felt like the book had a lot of internal inconsistancies, redundance and extensive build-up for a trite resolution. I kept thinking... is the editor asleep?

Any additional comments?
This book is part of a trilogy, so you are left wanting more. I love Amish books and the interesting way in which the Amish survive amongst the Englishers. I never seem to weary of the contrasts and the attraction of one to the other. It's intriguing, too, to witness how the older Amish generations guide the youngsters, but there is no leniency...if they don't follow the Amish "ways", the are "shunned". I find it amazing that families will ostracize their own children...I can't understand how one could turn away from one's child. Strict love, more like God's tough love.
