I liked the character Linda and Mary Ellen's incredible knack for dealing with what could have been very difficult for Linda and her birth mother. I liked the character Jonas as the wise source of strength for the family and friends. I think the character Robert, the non-believer, showing how important it is to find and know God made me stop and think about my own relationship with God and how it can help us to find strength and keep families and communities together. Sometimes through believing and trusting in God we witness a miracle in life, but other times believing and trusting in God helps us to cope with a loss or tragedy when things would otherwise seem hopeless.
Having Josie show up on Mary Ellen and Abe's doorstep and asking to see Linda shows the reader the human side of those characters and how their trust in God can help them to deal with their fears and come to understand God will carry us through the most trying of situations.
Not sure it is beneficial for certain young readers that the book points out through Noah character that higher education is not needed or encouraged in the Amish community. I didn't know about shunning until I read a couple of Beth Wiseman's books.
I pre-ordered this book, knowing I wanted to see what happened next in this Amish community. This book dealt with the struggles of adoption, personal worth, and how situations affect families. Linda finds out as she's almost an adult that she's adopted, which causes a turmoil inside her and outside with her relationships with others.
What I enjoy most about the series is that each book shows that no one is perfect and we all need our personal relationship with the Lord. None of the books are 'preaching sermons'; they just cause you to reflect and think.
Great job! I can't wait for the next one to come out.
