I remembered the other series "Beside Still Waters" where two of the Sommer's daughters were killed in a buggy accident and this hurt the family so much alone with other things that they moved to 'Montana from Indiana in a rented house.
Marianna's old boyfriend came to Montana to see if he could talk her into getting married, she found out that she still had feeling for him even after she had met an English boy and really liked him, but he had gotten into trouble and wrote and sang songs. Something the OLD ORDER AMish didn't want. The Sommers found out that the English Bible told them more and explained it to their understanding more that their old German one. They begin to be friends with the English and started to believe more in their way of worshiping.
One of their sons Levi had gone back to Indiana and was going to get married to Naomi and rejoin the old Amish faith. Marianna had also come back with Aaron after he came to Montana to see if she still loved him, so they were planning on getting married also and this was the first time she saw the house that Aaron had built just for her.
Naomi was expecting a baby out of wedlock and everyone thought it was Levi's so the parents wanted them to wait until the baby came to be married. Abe and Ruth and some of their children were hiring a driver to go back with them to get the remainder of their household items also to go too Levi and Naomi's wedding. But the driver that was going with them was the famous singer and song writer Ben Stone, Marianna's English boy friend. He had been on tour but something came up and the tour was canceled so he was back home. What is Marianna going to say when he shows up with her parents?
When they all arrived in Indiana that is when things begin to take shape in this story. Good story line and if you have read the previous books then you will really enjoy this one, so that you can see just how the family is doing and what is going on in their lives.
Thanks so much to Jeane at Wynn Wynn Media for sending me this book for my thoughts.
