This book was a nice change of pace for me. It is book one in a series about an Amish family. In this first book, the plot is centered on an Amish woman and her husband who have to take in her two teenage nieces after her sister and brother in law die in a car accident. The girls did not grow up in the Amish community so they have a hard time adjusting to the new lifestyle.
The author did a good job of transporting the reader into the Amish world. We see the struggle of the older niece who does not like the new lifestyle and I really felt for her. I loved all the character developments and can't wait to see what happens to the rest of the family as the series progresses.
A nice bonus that was added to the book was the Amish recipes! I can't wait to try some of them!
