Cassidy’s book did not disappoint me at all. It has all the ingredients of a traditional love story; the kind that appears to be doomed from the start. We learn early on that Donavan is seeking something he will never find in Pennsylvania and expects to find in New Pennsylvania. But he still hopes that Dawn, the love of his life, will join him.
He explains to her, “I want to understand how they think. Whenever I see them at the Market, they seem happy.”
In developing her futuristic world, Cassidy convinces readers of its reality. Donavan eventually finds happiness and despite the sci-fi elements of the story line, his search follows a very traditional approach to love; one that would be recognized by people in all cultures and backgrounds.
I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it.
The book definitely adds to the Pennsylvania world and if you're looking for another fix of Amish science fiction, give this one a go.
The author deftly presents a tale intersecting with and firmly interwoven into the fabric of Michael Bunker's Pennsylvania, as well as referencing Chris Pourteau's Gettysburg (another great piece of Pennsylvania fan fiction). The author helps integrate Donavan’s backstory neatly into the existing canon of the original Pennsylvania Omnibus, as we see Donavan fleshed out more fully here, his backstory and motivation more developed. We also see how connected he is to the Yoder family, as well as Pook and Dawn (all characters from the original work) and what she means to him. The story moves at a brisk pace showing Donavan’s development over a span of months and years. Stark and intensely character focused, it is a deep journey that is moving and tragic as he explores his world outside of Amish life and the discoveries he finds, with nothing as he thought it would be. A gritty illustration by Ben Adams seamlessly glues together the bonds between the fan-fiction and its parent work.Read more ›
You can’t help but like Donavan. He loves his cow, he loves a girl and yet he decides to leave both for a nine-month spell in the city, knowing he won’t be coming back. From here he travels to New Pennsylvania – a journey of nine light years but during which he ages just one week – without a second’s thought for his parents back in the Amish community of horse and carts and barn building and milking cows. I’m not being flippant. This really is quite endearing.
What makes this work is the excellent writing style employed by Cassidy. She entices the reader to her story with the manner in which she relates to the reader, revealing not only her personality and her voice, but also the respect she has for the audience. Indeed, this conceptual writing style moulds the overall character of this work.
The story is about an illegal alien, disappearing into a family network set up decades (or maybe generations) ago, yet tugging at the edge of my consciousness I can’t help but wonder if there isn’t a hidden depth to the book, a buried metaphor if you like, that is just out of grasping distance. This is a very clever book, written in an honest style, and I would implore readers to buy a copy. You won’t regret it.
