Not Since Romeo and Juliet Has a Couple Faced Odds This Long
The Cramers and Mosiers have been angry with each other for as long as anyone can remember. Things had cooled to a simmer...until Addie Cramer and Jonathan Mosier fell head over heels for each other. Now old tensions are renewed, and Addie's parents insist she marry stolid and uninspiring Phillip Eicher.
Distraught at a future apart, the two decide their best hope is to reconcile the two families...but that means digging into the past to see what tore them apart. Will their love be enough to keep them together or will long-held secrets ruin their chance at happiness?

"Gould's latest novel in the Courtships of Lancaster County series touches on love and family loyalty and the bonds that result from both. Her strong, crisp language and genuine characters draw you in." --RT Book Reviews

Will the truth ever come out as to what caused the feud?? Will Addie find true love with Jonathan or will she be forced to settle for the Hishop's son??? How does Addie's mother and dad fit in to all of this and where does Aunt Nell never married fit in??? Will a letter written 25 plus years ago ever resurface??
Fantastic book that kept me reading- A poem came to my mind while reading Adoring Addie: "Oh what a tangled web we weave- when first we practice to deceive" by Sir Walter Scott!!! I have never read an Amish book quite like this one- but it is truely a wonderful story as only Leslie Gould can tell it- Leslie is so good at writing!!! Most definitely a five star book!!!
In the first chapter, I was totally disgusted during the scene with the tadpoles, the descriptive language made it seem very real: "The tadpoles flopped this way and that. I rushed from one to the next, pinching each one tightly enough to hold on to it but not enough to damage, dropping them back into the green slime."
I also felt the author did a great job using descriptive language to get to reader to use all of their senses.
I felt the end was a little rushed. It was way too much of sudden happen ending. I would have like to have seen another chapter or two to allow the events to play out and then epilogue instead of it all being thrown into a few pages.
These are the first books I have read that let one see into the life of the Amish and feel what they must be feeling. I'm sure you won't be surprised to know that I am now well into reading the third book, Minding Molly. I am enjoying Ms. Gould's books immensely and highly recommend them.to my fellow readers.
