Chloe begins her journey to Appleseed Creek by working for the college. Although she only plans to stay for a short time, you can tell she is excited to make the change. As she is driving, she meets up with Becky, a young Amish girl who is being taunted by a couple of hooligans. Chloe offers Becky assistance and their friendship begins despite their differences. Soon Becky explains to Chloe about her desire to be an artist and that she has left the Amish community to become English.
With no place Togo, Chloe offers Becky a place to stay an offers her comfort during this emotional time. Timothy is Becky's brother and he has left the Amish community as well. He appreciates Chloe taking in Becky and does what he can to help.
Becky tries to find a job, but no one in the community is willing to help her. On the day of a promising job interview, Becky takes Chloe's car and a horrible accident happens. Becky is in trouble now and this causes further separation from her family. When the accident takes the life of the Bishop, Becky is pushed away from everyone and feels that she may have been punished for leaving the Amish community.
Once the investigation begins, certain things are discovered and maybe Becky wasn't responsible for the accident.
Someone has deeper motives and Becky and Chloe fight to uncover the truth.
This was such a heartwarming story, filled with mystery and intrigue. I am a definite fan and look forward to reading more in this 5 star series.
This was the one challenge to those of us who live in cities today, would you have aided the girl and then allowed her to stay in your home? Chloe does. The girl, Becky, is an Amish girl going off on her Rumspringa. While Chloe might be leery of letting Becky move in with her, Becky's naivete does not question the correctness nor safety of the situation at all. In fact, she phones her brother, Timothy to come help them move in.
As all guardians/parents know, children can get in mishaps. Even nineteen year olds. Becky borrows Chloe's car and there is a severe accident...but was it an accident and if not, then who was the intended victim?
There is violence in the Amish town of Appleseed Creek. The position of Bishop is greatly coveted by some. Raw hatred encounters greed and human destruction hits Appleseed. What is going on in this picturesque town? Then there is the undercurrents at the College.
Chloe will have a greater part in the future of this community than she expected as she drove in.
This was a good novel and makes me eager for the next volume.
What a great read. This story had plenty of action and suspense that kept me turning the pages. The tone was very comfortable and the author did a good job at diverting my attention that kept me guessing as the story moved along. Chloe is a great character, strong yet vulnerable as is Becky, one of the secondary cast in this charmingly appealing and wonderful series. This debut mystery is a great beginning to what I hope is a long-running series.
