Amish straddling both worlds?
“Best say it was purposeful. Just like the rest of the people in the country, shaky financial times have hit Amish businesses hard. Busloads of visitors used to come to eat in our restaurants and buy homemade goods like furniture and quilts, but not so many lately. So I thought, and convinced our church leaders, that it would be good to have something new to draw them in—a quilt trail, so to speak, where they could go from barn to barn, maybe buy things, even garden products or eggs if the more expensive items were too deep for their pockets. Besides farming, I guess we’ve learned to lean on the tourist trade a lot.”
I may try reading this at a later date.
Remember this is my personal opinion and does not reflect on the author.
It was very heartening to read about the close girlfriend relationships that existed between Sarah, Hannah and Ellie the trust and empathy they held for each other is an excellent opportunity to learn more insight into the closeness these people hold for each other - especially in times of distress.
For me personally I was somewhat a little disappointed with Sarah's plight at the end of the book, but, having read "Return to Grace" made me like the ending afterall.
This is a lovely story about the struggles our Amish friends endure in their life. Sometimes we think of these folks as not having a care in the world and yet they seem to have a quaint, if not unbelievable way to do it. I would suggest the most heart rending aspect of their faith is to abide by the shunning. To have to totally disassociate onself from a loved one until he/she has confessed and been exhonerated, has to be the heardest thing to do. This is a very exciting and dramatic novel, has many twists and turns, some frightful, some expected and some romantic, but all excellent entertainment.
I especially like the fact that Karen provides the website [...] that provides additional information on quilt square paintings on barns as well as [...] that teaches us all a little more about Amish life.
Can't wait for Karen to come out with "Finding Mercy", "The Covered Bridge" in an anthology called "Dark Crossings" I understanding will be coming out in July 2012.
I've read most of Ms. Harper's books from the stand alones, the Maplecreek Amish to the Home Valley Amish. She also has another series that has 3 books which I'm looking forward to starting soon. (Cold Creek)
This book had a good plot and the bad guy wasn't apparent until the end. I liked the people. I liked the lovely way it ends.
I also learned a lot about the Amish. Good Book!
