Overall Experience of read: LOVE the book.
Maybe because I relate to it? I'm not Amish but I have had issues with my faith in the past. Questioning actions and outcomes. Questioning my life, the people I have in it and my choices. It took a while before I found what I was looking for and it's still a struggle sometimes but overall I am happy.
So the book? It was unexpected. Amish romance fiction? Not my thing. I love those MC biker books so this was a complete 180 from my normal reads. I loved the development of the characters and the story, I felt connected to the group of people in this story. I love Levi. He is what you want in a man. Caring, strong, supportive, faithful & loving. Danielle is the mixed up Modern world girl he marries and their story? Honestly beautiful. I didn't feel they had a rushed relationship, this story sucked me in and I just couldn't put it down. It was a great Sunday read for me.
I am just going to recommend you read this book. Writing style - easy flow, realistic & entertaining. Love, laughs, drama, heartbreak & faith.
When Levi learns of the problem that Danielle is facing he quickly tries to comfort her. What does Levi suggest that shocks Danielle and His mother, Vera? When Vera learns of Levi's plans what drastic measures does she take to try to stop him? Is Vera truly following her Amish upbringing? How will Levi react when he learns what his mother does?
The characters are do well defined in this book they seem realistic. I really loved the quirky character Martha who has taken Danielle into her home and cares for her like a daughter. Martha creates some pretty off the wall recipes like a beet omelette and she never hesitates to defend Danielle against anyone especially Vera.
I was not given a complimentary copy of this book for review. All statements and opinions are strictly my own. I have rated this book with five stars for the wonderful story that is being told. I highly recommend this book to all those who love Christian fiction involving the Amish.
Congratulations to Beth Wiseman for a wonderful story that encourages love, forgiveness, and to seek God in all that you do.
Yet it was that terrible incident that ultimately led Danielle to her savior -- an elderly woman named Martha, who shared her hospital room. After a bit of hostility and mistrust on Danielle's part (detailed in a previous book, which is helpful to gain more insight in the characters but definitely not necessary to fully appreciate this book) the two become friendly, and the eccentric and rather reclusive Martha surprisingly opens her home to the girl.
That was a year ago, and although Danielle still has some troubles, she's made great strides overall. She has a close relationship with Martha and her new husband Arnold, and works as a waitress at a local restaurant. Although an Englischer herself, Danielle has found romance with an Amish boy, Matthew Lapp, and is close friends with another, Levi Detweiller.
Suddenly. Danielle's world comes crashing down when she discovers she's pregnant. She says she and Matthew only made love once, and although she had planned to save herself for marriage, Danielle allowed her great love for Matthew to carry her away.
Despite this unexpected change of plans, Danielle is confident that Matthew's love for her will extend to the child. They'll marry and everything will be great.
But Matthew is less than thrilled with Danielle's announcement. In fact. he does the worst thing imaginable -- tells Danielle flatly that he does not love her and never did. that he only said the words in order to get her to have sex with him.
Danielle is utterly devastated. How can she ever tell Martha and Arnold, the people who so generously gave her a home and put so much faith in her? How can she support the child, which she has no thought whatsoever of giving up, alone on a waitress' salary? And, threaded through it all, Danielle finds that she is utterly furious with God. How could He do this to her? Danielle keeps wondering.
Meanwhile, her friend Levi continues to offer his support, despite his mother Vera's mistrust and dislike of the non-Amish girl. Like any mother, Vera worries about her children -- and in this particular case, she worries that everything Levi has grown up to know and practice about their faith could easily be unraveled by this outsider who doesn't believe in what they all do.
Yet Levi, always obedient to his parents, refuses to abandon his friend in her time of dire need. And, bizarrely, Levi has the strangest feeling that God is trying to use him as an instrument to help Danielle...
As always, Wiseman writes realistic characters, grappling with realistic problems to which readers can easily relate. As Land of Canaan is a series, many of the characters who make appearances in this book are ones already familiar; and even better. some connect to Daughters of the Promise, Wiseman's previous series set back East. If you've read her other books, it's fun to catch a mention of some previous character and get an update, however small, on how his or her life has progressed since you last "met". But, the books all stand alone well too, so if this is your first glimpse into Wiseman's Colorado Amish community, there should be no problem in fully enjoying and appreciating the story.
