The second installment of the Amish of Apple Grove series is as good as the first and maybe a little better. This story focuses on the younger Switzer daughter, Rebecca, who has never given up on the love of her life, Jesse Montgomery, that she met four years earlier. She is determined to find Jesse and prove they are meant to be together. What she finds is a whole lot of trouble as she travels to Lawrence in search of Jesse.

This story made me laugh several times as Rebecca found herself in more and more trouble. I loved how the authors pulled aspects from the first story into this one. However, you don’t have to read the first book to enjoy the second one.

The characters in this story are wonderful. Rebecca is stubborn and feisty while Colin is looking for the simpler life as a pastor. The secondary characters add so much to the story, especially Sassy. There was lots of fun watching the contrast between Rebecca and Sassy.

This is a great story for anyone who is looking for a relaxing, entertaining story with fun characters. It was one of those stories that I could guess how things would turn out, but it was a very enjoyable story. I can’t wait to see what happens next to the Amish of Apple Grove!

I’d like to thank Harvest House Publishers for the opportunity to read and review this story. I am under no obligation other than to give my honest opinion.
