Don't get me wrong, this book was moving and pulled at my heart and really had me feeling the "it's so wrong to love you scenario, but the heart wants what the heart wants". The book is about "Amish" twins, Seth and Silas who crash land in a cornfield from another world, I know, sounds crazy already, but give it a chance because it is an AMAZING story. Immediately, reading the story I became hooked and I am not a Sci Fi, or Alien book lover. The love story that transpires is loving and has deep emotional roots that bring Rebecca and Seth together telepathically where they can call for each other and Rebecca is able to feel and experience exactly what Seth holds in his heart. The family understands they are aliens but allows them to stay and help on the farm in exchange for room and board because they need the manpower and they boys have been nothing but kind and helpful to the family which creates tension in the amish community and the family risks shunning and experiences gossip from the community.
So I mentioned in the beginning of my review the story confused me, well only the ending did because now that I've had a few days to think about this book, I question did the alien, crop circle plot even need to be introduced, couldn't they of been angels, or a blessing to their family sent straight from God or just visitors from another state stranded? Why so complicated? The love story alone held the book together quite well. Read the book, it's good and thought provoking at the very least.I've been trying to start a new book, but I keep thinking about this one.
So I liked the aliens, and I liked the Amish. What I did not like was the Romance. Well, duh, on me. It is marketed as romance. It is not the author's fault that romance makes me want to gag. I wanted to shake the girl and yell, "You don't even know this boy!!! What you do know is he keeps crossing boundaries! You can have sex only so many times a day, and then what? You don't know his family and culture and customs and language and world and climate and work. You don't know if you can live with him outside of smoochies!" But that's just me.
The ending was satisfying. If you can stand romance, if you find the Amish interesting, if you like speculation about aliens and theology, you are going to love this book.
Now I wonder what Marlayne Giron will think of my book about Amish imitators on another planet.
Giron crafted a very well-written novel. I especially enjoyed the fascinating detail in which Giron describes the lifestyle and beliefs of the Amish community.
In theory, I love the idea of an otherworldly slant to this type of ROMEO & JULIET-esque story. However, I found the novel's paranormal elements to be somewhat hokey and not fully developed. Although I didn't care for the story's resolution, I do give Giron credit for having crafted an interesting surprise ending.
Overall, it's definitely a book worth adding to one's TBR pile.
