I would highly recommend this read.
Radical Reads Book Blog
I've bought this book to support the author. I'm not only showing I support her, I'm showing I loved the book that much.
Evanna Delano, a journalism major, was so excited to move to the small Pennsylvania farm town to be with her college boyfriend, Jake Larson. But after being there with him, she realized he wasn't the guy he once was. Instead of giving her the fairy tale life she imagined, he spent his time away from her. She was miserable and ... stuck. What could she do?
One day, while working in the library, she met Gideon Beckensheim and his younger brother, Timothy. Gideon, born into a world he thought he had all figured out, realized that nothing was as it seemed. The things he was taught, and believed he wanted weren't as appealing after getting to know his 'Van'.
Although it's as if they are from two completely different planets, they fall for each other and they fall hard. It's like they were made for one another. Neither have ever felt so strongly for anyone else and as much as they want to be together, it seems impossible. How could anyone accept them being in any kind of relationship? Could Gideon's family welcome the unknown and accept Evanna for who she truly is? Can Evanna and Gideon get passed the differences and make a life together and be happy?
Beautiful Rugged by Sara V. Zook is a story definitely worth reading and I highly recommend it. It's a love story that shows no matter how different everyone's worlds are, we can still find love in one another. One that shows that there is a way to be with the one we love, no matter the odds.
I was given an Arc in return for an honest review. This was also reviewed on behalf of the blog, Your Next Hot Read! ~LisaRae YNHR
Evanna Delane has just moved to a small town in Pennsylvania to be with her boyfriend Jake Larson after they graduate from college. Jake has just got a job in his hometown and Evanna has managed to get a job in the library, although she has just gotten a degree in journalism. But Jake is no longer the guy he was and Evanna isn't happy.
Gideon Beckensheim has always done what is expected of him and has stayed within his faith, never doubting anything until a chance meeting with Evanna outside the library. Now he questions his feelings towards his fiance Cora and those around him.
Will Evanna and Gideon be able to deal with their feelings for one another when they are both in relationships with others and from two completely different worlds? When it is evident how much Gideon stands to lose will Evanna be there for him or will he choose what he already knows?
This was an emotional book dealing with the faith that one has and how rigid some of the rules can be. Yet it is also about allowing yourself to be truly happy and in love, no matter what the cost.
I loved the character of Evanna in that she really did try in her relationship with Jake and wanted things to work out with him. Yet she wasn't happy and knew she wasn't long before she met Gideon.
I can't imagine how torn Gideon must have felt when trying to decide what he was going to do with his future. Then the deceit in the end that was dealt to him must have really allowed him to move on, knowing he did what he could.
This was the first book I have read by this author and I will definitely be reading more!
