Ever since Anna Mae’s childhood friend Jeremiah left their Amish community, she’s questioned her own place in the Amish world. The Amish life feels as if it’s closing in on her, and with her mother trying to set her up with potential suitors, Anna Mae feels trapped in a life she’s not sure she wants anymore. But she’s never told anyone that she longs for a tiny taste of freedom—freedom that could be very costly.
When Jeremiah suddenly reappears in Middlefield to help his mentor, Yankee veterinarian Dr. Miller, new questions surface for Anna Mae, along with feelings she’d never fully acknowledged before.
As Anna Mae and Jeremiah rekindle their friendship, old feelings take on new meaning. Yet the question still lingers: What is God’s plan for her life? Should she stay, keeping loyal to her Amish family, or does God have a bigger plan—one that provides more freedom than she could imagine? The answers do not come easily, and the answer to God’s call may lie in different directions . . . for both of them.

My Comments: Amish Fiction at it’s best – Not everyone is cut out to be or stay Amish. Jeremiah and Anna Mae certainly were not. They had a deeper calling of service – Jeremiah’s to veterinarian service and Anna Mae’s to something she wasn’t quite sure of yet. Three love stories occur simultaneously as well – Bekah and Caleb, Anna Mae and Jeremiah, and Judith and David – all different scenarios yet all similar in many ways. An interesting mix of Amish and English. God is definitely at work here. Great book, great writing – with so much going on. I recommend this book to Amish fiction lovers, romance lovers, and to anyone who loves a good story!
