About the book: Annie Martin loves the Plain ways of her Old Order Mennonite people, like those revered by her beloved grandfather. Retreating from a contentious relationship with her mother, Annie goes to live with her Daadi Moses in Apple Ridge.
But as spring moves into Pennsylvania and Annie spends time amongst the cherry trees with the handsome Aden Zook, she wishes she could forget how deeply the lines between the Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonite are drawn.Can Annie and Aden find a place for their love to bloom in the midst of the brewing storm?
My Comments: This is a sweet, fast read. I always love Amish romance stories (and you can tell by the number of them I review) because they are sweet, faith-filled, and CLEAN. This book is no exception to that rule. Annie has a troubled life – she doesn’t seem to get along with her Mom or the rest of her nuclear family, her father left when she was young, she loves her granddad, but even in this story, they have problems. Then comes along Aden a young Amish man. Oh and by the way, Annie is Mennonite. Both sects are plain. The only main difference I see is the Mennonites use electricity and the Amish do not. Yet, according to Annie’s grandfather Annie and Aden are unequally yoked. I will never quite get that. Anyway, the struggle is real nonetheless. The book made me cry. I love men of integrity and Aden seems to be chock-full of it. Annie’s sweet disposition is also endearing. I hope another book is forthcoming because I want to find out the rest of the story. If I were rating with stars, this would be a 3.5 out of 5.
I received this book from Blogging for Books/WaterBrook Press. The opinions are my own.
