This book was a very interesting type of Amish novel. I know that every sect of Amish has their own rules but it is always a little disconcerting to me when it feels like they aren't that much different from the rest of us. I think the beauty of the Amish is that they stand out from everyone else because of their beliefs and I really admire that aspect of their faith. Perhaps, though, the Amish world is changing as much as the English world.
The story itself is great and interesting. I enjoyed the characters and the book was hard to put down. It was well-written and I liked the plot and I liked the character interactions. Elizabeth, the main character, is kind of at a crossroads in her life and this is really her story. She is going through Rumschpringe, but not of the wild variety - just trying to figure out her life direction.
If you enjoy Amish fiction you'll enjoy this. I'm looking forward to reading more from Barbara Cameron.
