I wanted to have the real book in hand but it's easier on my arms to read from my Kindle. From the first page to the last, this book interested me and captivated my heart. Kate has a gift from God for singing but her Amish faith keeps her from being worldly and enjoying praise from others. She knows God wants her to use her gifts to help others, yet it is a sin to leave her peaceful Amish world for worldly things. The Amish think her wanting to sing for people is prideful. Kate has to learn much through very tough times, love for music, her family and her boyfriend. Her only desire is to do God's will but it takes her through much sorrow and soul searching before she knows God's will for her. Same for all of us. One of my most favorite hymns is strewn throughout the book - BE STILL MY SOUL and the scripture i quote daily - its my mantra - be still and know that I am God. That song and scripture helped Kate receive the answers she needed. It has always inspired me when I have felt down and depressed. This is a book about Love, faith in God, family, trials, misunderstandings, gossip and true happiness and joy!! I loved it and will keep it to read again. Great writing about the Amish but anyone would love reading it. Very thought provoking. There were no typos at ll in this book. Nice change from most kindle books. Jennifer Beckstrand is awesome and has a great heart and mind for writing books. She visited the Amish to learn more about them and how they talk. Thanks Jennifer. Can't wait to read the next two books in this series.
Kate’s Song is such a heartwarming story because Kate struggles between her singing and her Amish faith. Her main interest is God’s will for her life, but just what is His will? Is it her singing career or at home in her Amish community? And the Ordnung will not allow her to have both. Kate’s journey is a difficult one as she struggles to make a decision.
Jennifer Beckstrand is a new author for me, and I am very glad I had the opportunity to read and review Kate’s Song. I love how each author of Amish fiction has their own twist on their stories, and I love the writing style and the new twist on Amish fiction from Ms. Beckstrand! I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this story, though some of them were frustrating at times! Kate was a sweetheart and of course I wanted the best for her, whatever it was! I love how the author weaves the story together with the Amish faith, worldly lifestyle with Kate’s music, the love of family, her struggles and difficulties, along with her faith in God, and the happiness she finds through following what God’s wants for her life. Kate’s Song is writing at it’s best, and I look forward to reading more books by author Jennifer Beckstrand!
I received this book from the author, Jennifer Beckstrand to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
Some aspects of the plot were a bit predictable, and I didn't follow some of the characters actions and motivations. The big conflict came about from a "big misunderstanding." If the male lead, Nathaniel, would have simply asked Kate to explain her actions, there wouldn't have been a problem. I just found it hard to believe that since he was so in love with her that he wouldn't even give her one chance to explain what happened instead of hearsay or what he thought he saw.
I like romance, but there were several cheesy bits, and I had no idea that grown men were so prone to sobbing and weeping. I guess I am used to the stoic, inward-retreating types ;)
Despite the aspects that I didn't care for much, there was still a lot to enjoy in the story. My favorite characters were Kate's parents and her brother, Elmer. They were so loyal to Kate and very inspiring. I also appreciated that Kate came to her decision without basing it on Nathaniel, or anyone else, but based on her faith & what she felt was God's will.
I recommend for readers that really enjoy Amish-set stories and won't mind that the romance is sweet and sometimes shimmies over into cheesy.
