Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sattler (Hearts in Harmony) offers her large fan base a story where unlike meets dislike. Although both Miranda Klassen and Ted Wiebe are part of the Mennonite church, these two young adults couldn't be any different. Inside out and outside in, Miranda and Ted look different (she's modern, he's Old Order conservative) and think different (she's into electronic gadgets, he's into plain and simple). Thrown together when Miranda is hired to organize Ted's Old Order Mennonite church's anniversary celebration, each balks at the other's mode of living. Once Ted gets past Miranda's red earrings, insanely high heels, and cellphone, and sees her heart for God, things begin to thaw between the two. With a bevy of delightful characters, Sattler takes what could be just another toss 'em together and it will all work out in the end faith-based romance and makes it something more, much more. Winsome and warm, this story tickles the funny bone and teases the heart in equal measure. (May)

What intrigued me about reading this novel? Well, it's a romance about Mennonites. Don't look so shocked. Mennonites can fall in love as well as the next guy or gal. I know. It's my cultural heritage. But Gail Sattler added a twist. The hero, Ted Wiebe, is an Old Order Mennonite, not to be confused with Amish. Ted's community near Minneapolis is portrayed as quite modern, though the women wear head coverings in public. Not that they're in public much. For the most part, they're traditional housewives, wearing dresses. One thing about Ted's people, though. They care about their community and want to reach them for Jesus.

Enter the heroine, Miranda Klassen, who's been hired by Ted's church to help write and direct an outreach. Ted's pretty sure she'll be a fine upstanding young woman. After all, she's Mennonite, too, even though she's from a large church in Seattle. How different can they be?

[Cue the laugh line music here.]

Not only does Miranda not wear demure dresses and a head covering--or even sensible shoes for a Minnesota winter--she reads the Bible on her cell phone. (I've downloaded three different Bible version apps myself since Miranda gave me the idea!) Even Ted has to admit that her heart's in the right place, though they repeatedly clash over how this outreach program will be developed. What he never expects is that her heart will capture his.

The bumpy path this romance takes had me reading on my cell phone (ironic, eh?) as I walked my dog up and down our country road. Honestly. I enjoyed it that much. If I had a hard copy, I'd loan it to you.

I absolutely loved this story line! It was so humorous from the very beginning! Ted is so traditional, in his faith. And Miranda a carefree girl that loves her life and her faith the way it is. The juxtaposition of the black hat, suspenders, and boots, vs the semi tight blue jeans, red high heels and lipstick was way too funny. I could just picture all of this happening in a movie.
And Ted being so dead set she should go back home, and everyone else seemingly liking her for who she was.
It is so true of how we judge people ourselves sometimes, and how ridiculous we must seem to others. There was so much flirting going on even when it wasn't obvious. You kind of felt they had that love hate feeling, but non the less laughing the whole time. They both where just fun characters. And when he thought he should fatten her up, oh my goodness, classic. The root beer floats were awesome and the dinners in his office were even more great. He was already was in love, but was too afraid to act on it. Him trying to get her to step on the freight scales. And her blurp, that he was not a stud muffin! I loved Stud Muffin- way too cute! But his kindness, far outweighed his outward emotions. Miranda was the same. You could just feel how much she loved him, and of course she loved how he looked in his black brim hat.! She mentioned that one more than once! There was so much fun with the cameras, the visit to the aquarium, and of course, the first kiss!! WoW! finally, finally He Kissed her and yes, she kissed him back! But boy, we really had to wait a while till the next kiss. But it was worth it!!
Could not put it down!!

The ending was what really made this story shine. It started out a bit slow and it wasn't until I was about halfway through the story that I started to really care one way or the other. I felt her frustrations at times and enjoyed the way Ted comforted her when she was hurting and how he tried to be a true friend. I enjoyed that the conflict was so black and white at times, but on occasion it also felt a bit like shoving a square peg into a round hole. Sometimes you could feel that it was a bit forced, like her reason for being at Piney Meadows in the first place.

At any rate, it was a sweet love story and I really enjoyed how everything came together at the end. The story was downright romantic. And those few kisses that were shared. Wow! They set the pages on fire because they were the result of restrained passion. That's my favorite kind...the type that builds and builds until it finally happens. :) And it's even better when it is surrounding an emotional situation, like when Miranda was so discouraged.

I loved how the author showed the strengths and weaknesses of both characters and how Ted didn't realize at first how much Miranda really did have strong faith in Christ. Why? Because he was determining her depth of faith based on her outward appearance. The scene where she tearfully responded as she sang the lyrics of the hymn was profound and emotionally moving. I loved how this situation started to really change Ted's perspective about real worship and how he realized everything he'd done recently had been more out of habit than from his heart. I loved how Miranda's faith stirred Ted's. She made him want to be a better man.

I am not Mennonite but happen to have ancestors that were Mennonite. I can't comment on the realism of the book, that is, did it stay true to Mennonite culture. However, I enjoyed the book. It's not your average romance, but I think that's what I liked about it. The characters were likeable, and the story kept my interest. I would definitely recommend this book to others who enjoy inspirational romance.
