When her father can no longer provide for his family he sends Fanny Price to live with her aunt's family in Mount Hope, Ohio. Never feeling a part of the Bontrager family, Fanny is basically a loner—not taking part in the young people's activities and singings—but choosing instead to stay at home and do whatever work is needed on the large prosperous farm. Befriended only by her aunt's stepson, Elijah, Fanny so yearns for their special friendship to turn into something deeper.
However, when two strangers visit their Amish community—the lovely, Mary Coblentz and her charming, flirtatious brother, Henry—Elijah's attentions are swiftly diverted, much to Fanny's dismay. What ensues are plenty of twists and turns as the roguish Henry causes plenty of jealousies to arise, Elijah becomes besotted with Mary, and the heartbroken Fanny finds herself with a suitor as well. Will he help her to forget the only man she has ever loved?
Author Sarah Price has written a fascinating tale of deceit, betrayal, and unrequited love that finely parallels Jane Austen's classic masterpiece! I literally could not put it down except out of necessity. Fanny is truly a stick-in-the-mud, but with good reason. She tries so hard to gain acceptance from her new family by doing everything for them, that she loses herself in the process. She so seldom laughed or had fun, that when she did it brought a smile to my face as well. I so wanted her to find her mouth even if I had to shake her to bring that about! lol I honestly didn't care who Fanny ended up with as long as she was happy and I wasn't at all sure who that "someone" would be until almost the very end of the book. I love unpredictable and that's why I so enjoyed this "out of the box" Amish book with its capricious characters! You don't have to be an Amish book lover or even a Jane Austen fan to thoroughly relish this enjoyable, never boring new release! Be sure to order your copy today!
I am not going to say to much about this book because once I would start I would give too much away abut it an it wound
t be fair to those that need to read it. I plan on telling others about the book. I was able to get it off of amazon the kindle edition an it is worth every minute I spent reading it this morning, I never realized how much easier it is to read book on a tablet or like I have to right here on my computer.
The wording is so much easier on eyes like mine that are getting old (76) to read, but I want to encourage everyone to read all of her books not just this one, she is a awesome author, her word keep you looking for the next word and then the next book.
There are very happy times an also you will feel like crying and not going one but please keep right on reading. When you are done please go on face book or were ever you are comfortable an send a special mess to Sarah an let her know how much you loved her book and that you will tell others about this one book an then check out her other books also so you can do the same with them. Don't forget to make a review also about this book and any of the others that you read also tell all your friends about her book.
Authors need to hear this about how people feel about their books, it takes time an lot of work to get these books out there for you to read, they can't just sit down and start writing a book it just doesn't work that way if you think it does just sit down and start writing an see how far you will get before you need to go check out information before you are ready to send it to a publisher, it will come back in your return mail
Well please just do what you can to help get this story out there for everyone to read and enjoy.
