With dreams of marrying an Old Order Amish man, Leah Yoder plans on raising children in the peaceful Delaware community. But when Mennonite missionary Daniel Brown arrives to share his story with their church, Leah is fascinated by him. She spends time with Daniel in a forbidden courtship to learn how she truly feels about him. Before long, Leah has a choice to make. Should she stay with her community…or leave with the man she believes God has placed in her life’s path?
My Comments: I loved this whole series written by Ms. Miller. This book explains some of the differences between the Old Order Amish and the Mennonite. The struggles that Leah goes through seem very real. I like this family of mostly women. They are far from perfect. One of my favorite sisters is Susannah, who has downs syndrome. The family has a great relationship with good communication. I also love the fact that we are introduced to a man called to full-time missions by God, and that priorities seem solid. I admired and respected Leah and the choices she made. I look forward to more books in this series!
Thank you NetGalley for introducing me to such great books! This book will be published the beginning of May, 2012.
