The book was horrible to me. Very disturbing indeed. Is it not written in In 3:17 that HE has come that through Him we might be saved. This book is horrible. Very horrible. I read the four chapters in the hope that it would correct itself somehow. Simplicity is certainly not stupidity. The narration was more fit for the life of an eight year old girl ... tops ten years (no pun). It is filled with so much hate for none Amish. I have read number of Amish romance books and I have grown to respect their simple ways, but this book is so much hate filled to non Amish. Suggesting that God kills someone for drinking alcohol and for buying a car! I am truly horrified. Encouraging girls to SLAP sin out of men! So horrible! First, alcohol non consumption is not restricted to Amish or medically impaired people only. There are "Englishers" who by self restriction do not consume Alcohol (not that I mean alcohol is a sin,.but I believe it's intoxication is a sin). It sounds like the Amish in this book are not simple but are proud of the fact that they do not adhere to the world and they read their German Bible... reminding me of the Pharisee that boasted of his righteousness in the temple. If you know you are saved then where is the Grace by which you are saved? It is by Faith not knowledge that we are saved. This book is horrible. It has done real damage to my Amish view.

I know what I'm reading -- a short-story volume and not a big book. That's spelled out upfront. From that viewpoint I'll review this book,

Every Friday morning Hannah goes to the lake to feel the loss of her sister from drowning. "Without Jesus, And without God." So she has been taught. So all alone at the lake she grieves and meditates. Beautiful description here that you can feel. Now Hannah sees another side of God -- the God who takes away what you love. So at the lake, she reads her Bible, tries to understand, bargain with God to forgive her sister and admit her to heaven.

To the lake at the same time one day comes William Zook, a man who had lost his wife and children in an accident. He feels at one with the water too, like Hannah. The description of settings, atmosphere and mood is rich, perhaps too rich and slows down the story. So at the lake that fateful Friday morning, Hannah and William meet, and sparks fly. Then Hannah and William share their stories with each other -- too personal and deep too quickly, I think.

The author's writing is a little too poetic for a straight-forward love story. Also, too much exposition rather than action and dialogue. I love description that I can see and feel, and this book has it. But it has to be balanced with other elements. Still, I'm sure many will enjoy this introductory story to Hannah's life.

I chose this book because of its interesting title; that and the fact that sometimes I want a quick read while wait to fall asleep, at the doctors office, etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I feel so sad for Hannah <<SPOILER ALERT>> as the grieves the loss of her sister. I know that if I lost my sister it would devastate me...

I look forward to reading the remaining volumes in this series. Well written Ms Yoder.

Although it may say Marshall, this is Bev Jackson. Love how you have captured the way most of us think when something bad has happened, that we must have been bad or done something terrible. We tend to 'put God in a box', thinking that He thinks the way we think. He is so far above that. Let us learn to think how He does instead! Keep up the wonderful stories!!

I enjoyed reading this short story that tells of how 2 people feel after a loved one has died. The same feelings many of us feel plus different other feelings we may never feel - yet they both seek God.
This was very well written and I could almost feel the hurt they felt.
The story also ended in a good way. Yes we all want to find out about these 2 but a person could also stop after reading this story and still feel complete. Was a moving story.

I didn't notice mistakes. This is a short story with only four chapters, and I don't normally buy these type of books since I enjoy one long book at once, at least a novella, or a novel. It does make you wonder what happens to the woman and man who met at the lake. It's just not my type of read, but if you enjoy good, clean, plain, simple, short reads, it's for you.

This novella was one you could not put down. The emotion of sadness and loss of a loved one left you feeling so very raw. Sicily Yoder gives the Amish a not so perfect exposure, so like the rest of us "Englishers". Godly,yet human, with a twist of guilt and remorse, because Hanna felt so responsible for her sister's turning away from God. Over much a recommend!
