This is another Amish book with a different twist. I have read Amy's first book "A Gift of Grace" and loved the author and the way it was written, well here is another one. Amy takes the Amish Faith and writes in a more modern way than some of the other writers.
Anna Mae McDonough was born and raised by Amish parents and in the Amish community, but when she met Kellan, "who was not Amish" and fell in love with him, he was not accepted by her community. Anna Mae had already joined the church so if she married him that meant she would be shunned, but she choose Kellan.
Kellan is a Christian man just not Amish so they moved to Baltimore where he owned and operated a car dealership. It had been three long years since Anna Mae had saw her people and she missed them so and she wanted to share with them that she was expecting a bobbli in January. She wanted to see them for Christmas so she wrote to her sister-in-law and see if she thought it would be alright to come to Lancaster, Pa. They both felt that it was in God's plan to get together and try to reconcile their family.
Will her dat accept this, he was the Bishop or will he still shun her. I started reading this book the day I received it and could not put it down, I read the complete book. It is so good, also such a beautiful book, would make a great Christmas gift for anyone on your list that reads. I also have to say as all of Amy's books she has some great Amish recipe's in the back.
This book was sent to me by Zondervan for my complete honest review, I give it 5 stars.*****
