About the Author

My Review

Amish Fiction is not my favorite genre but I really like both of these authors so I wanted to read this story. I’m so glad I did.

I enjoyed the fact that the story was from Jake’s perspective written in the first person. I really enjoyed watching Jake mature as he came to understand himself and who he really was. Priscilla was extremely interesting to watch. I related with Priscilla in her shyness around crowds and parties. She was also very straightforward with her thoughts and opinions. She was a kick! But my heart also broke for her in her painful past.

The story was predictable, but I was pleasantly surprised by the journey. The authors did give me some suprises. I especially enjoyed the storyline of Jake working with the “Englischers.”

This is a book two in the series and the main characters from book one make appearances in this story, this story stands alone and you can enjoy it without reading book one.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
