Bestselling author Mindy Starns Clark and coauthor Leslie Gould offer readers The Amish Nanny, Book 2 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Plain women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.

Amish-raised Ada Rupp knows it’s time to make a commitment to the faith and join the church, especially if she wants a future with the handsome Amish widower Will Gundy.
But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.

Anxious to learn more about her forebears, Ada enlists the help of a young Mennonite scholar named Daniel, but even as she develops feelings for him, she cannot get Will from her mind—or her heart. At a crossroads, Ada must decide what she is willing to give up from the past in order to embrace her future.

My comments: This was a very different type of Amish book.  I enjoyed it, but it was missing the usual Amish vibe.  Maybe this was missing because of the setting (Switzerland).  I don’t really know.  It seemed that this group was more progressive than other Amish people I have read about.  I have never read about the Amish traveling, especially by plane, nor have I ever heard of or read about an Amish nanny.  I still enjoyed this book and read it quickly.  If you are looking for a more traditional Amish read, this book isn’t it.  However, I recommend it as a good, interesting and thought-provoking read, especially in the summer.
