Another fantastic hit! I adore Cindy Woodsmall and I have never read a book of hers that I have not liked.
This series is absolutely fantastic and I’m so glad I’ve had a chance to review this book.
The characters in this series are so wonderfully written that I can’t put the book down once I’ve picked it up.
If you haven’t read the first or second book in this series I would suggest that you do so or you will be very confused. These are not stand-alone books like some series books within the Amish genre.
Rhoda finds herself torn between two brothers. She connects with each bother on a different level and the awkward situation threatens to tear apart the new Amish community and business. I think when I first started reading the series I liked Jacob more but at this point I’m also torn but leaning more towards Samuel for Rhoda.
As the story progresses, Rhoda has to work out her feelings for Samuel and for Jacob and determine whether she should follow her heart or fulfill a sense of duty and obligation that she has for Jacob. Amish love triangle—interesting!
|Coming April, 2014!|
Rhoda still struggles with seeing the apparition of her sister and flashes of visions that the Amish consider to be witchcraft or a gift given from Satan. You can nearly feel Rhoda’s frustration at times and I think this makes readers connect with her on a personal level.
I enjoyed this series immensely and I’m curious as to how everything will wrap up for everyone. I’m invested in every single one of the characters in this series. Even the new characters have piqued my interest and I can’t wait to pick up book four which is coming sometime in April of 2014!
