Violet Robinson lives a different lifestyle for the mere fact that her father is a U.S. Senator and her mother was raised Amish. Violet knows these two lifestyles completely contradict each other. Ironically, Violet is given the chance to live in an Amish house without any amenities that she is used to. Her father thinks this will make her realize just what she has in the English world. In doing this, Violet realizes she likes the Amish lifestyle and everything that goes with being Amish. She even becomes interested in Amish buggy shop owner Luke King, while in the process of living in this Amish house. Luke hasn't been baptized into the Amish church yet, so he can still make the decision to live in the English world. Violet and Luke become serious, but their parents aren't too happy with their courting because both are considering what it would be like to live in these opposite lifestyles.
As always Ms. Craver provides an entertaining story for her readers to get lost in for a few hours. Violet and Luke were extremely likeable characters and I felt the highs and lows they both were experiencing along the way while courting each other. Without giving any spoilers away, I loved how the author wove a major turn of events into the storyline and from that situation, allowed the characters to weave their own web of what happened thereafter. I always enjoyed Ms. Craver's Amish stories because they each contained characters that were fully believable and you can't help but become invested with each storyline...I feel this is a wonderful series to enjoy in its entirety. I highly recommend this author and this series!
From the Author
I hope you will enjoy reading about the romance between Violet and Luke. They need to overcome major obstacles if they stay together. Deciding which world to live in will not be an easy choice for an Amish man with a bishop for his father or for a college educated non-Amish woman.
A Decision of Faith is the final book in my Dreams of Plain Daughters Amish Series. However, I can't say goodbye to the characters in this series because they have become real to me. While writing about their journeys, I've felt their happiness as well as the heartbreaking moments each character has experienced. I decide to include these wonderful characters in my next series, The Bishop's Daughters. I hope readers will enjoy learning more about Luke's sisters and their loves.
