I'm a huge fan of Amish fiction but I have to be honest and say that I have been disappointed with a lot of the new Amish author's books because all the story-lines seemed the same. However, this new Amish Author more than exceeded my expectations. It really held my attention because the story was so different. I really, really enjoyed it.
This is a book that talks about forgiveness. Could you forgive after a rape or the murder of a school house full of children? This book is not only a good story with great characters, Annie's Truth will also have you thinking about all of the people in your life you need to forgive. It's a different take on your everyday Amish love story. It shows what it feels like to find a sense of belonging when you don't know where you come from or who your real parents are. With this book Beth has become one of my new favorite authors and I can't wait to read her next book!
I was given a copy of the book by the author.

Format: Paperback
I am a huge fan of Amish fiction so I always get excited when I find a new Amish fiction writer to read. When the author is able to give a fresh voice to the often same old same old Amish stories it's even better and that's just what I found in the pages of "Annie's Truth." There were so many things that I found refreshing about this story. First of all the book takes place in Virginia, a totally new setting for Amish fiction, or at least for the Amish fiction I have read. I also found the characters very realistic and easy to understand. Annie Beiler is a young Amish girl who finds out that she wasn't actually born Amish. The reactions and feelings she has were totally believable. Because she wants to find out who she really is, she risks being shunned, but needing answers propels her forward, even though the path she takes leads her away from John Yoder the man everyone believes she will marry. What will the cost be for seeking out her birth mother? Will she be shunned by her community, and will John be waiting for her to return, or does someone else capture his attention?

A book that pulled me in from the prologue, and kept me turning the pages until the very end. What a fantastic beginning for what seems to be a promising new series. I can't wait to read the next book in the series titled "Grace Given" due out in 2013.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say fans of Amish fiction are going to love this book!

I don't usually read Amish books but am glad that I read this one. Beth has woven a tale that will keep you guessing, pulling you along in this gentle story of forgiveness. I enjoyed learning about the Amish ways as they were shown in the story and not as a lesson. I liked the characters and cared what happened to them. Good story!

I found the book by Beth Shriver to be an excellent read. In her book Annie finds out she is adopted and goes in search of her birth mother. But the Amish leaders are aganist her going and Annie will face them when she returns. This is a very moving book and one that you will cry with Annie, be ahppy with her, get upset by the way she is treated, and fall in love with her. This is a must read for anyone looking for a good book. You will reread this over and over again. Beth out did herself in this book.

Format: Paperback
As Annie and her sister Hannah get permission from their mother to go through their hope chests containing items for their future weddings, Annie finds her childhood Bible wrapped up in hers. When she opens the front cover to compare her child-like handwriting, she notices that among her family's tree containing birth, wedding and death dates, her birth day is missing. Only her birth month and year have been noted.

When she inquires to this missing bit of information, she learns that she was left in a field one night and was found by her father. No one has ever known how Annie had come to be found in that field that night but her best friend John Yoder, believes God always knew where Annie would be best raised. Yet Annie has her doubts. When her father Amos, forbids it, Annie presses her mother to help her. Providing her with some time, money and a place to stay, Annie's mother Sarah reminds her that she has always had a home with them. She hopes Annie will chose to come home soon because in her mind nothing has ever changed about the way she loves Annie.

Now that she has made a decision to try and find her birth parents, Annie is staying with a family who has left the old Amish community. Getting help from Rudy, Annie keeps trying to find the missing piece of her puzzle to help her find out why she was left behind 18 years ago. Only the longer Annie takes, it may result in her being shunned by her own community and leaving behind the opportunity to find happiness and marriage with John Yoder. Only her sister, Hannah is more than willing to help John forget all about Annie. Will she find out the truth before it's too late to come home?

In the first novel in the Touch of Grace Series by Beth Shriver, Annie's Truth takes the reader into a different type of Amish novel.
