I think it's a good concept that should have received more development. If this is like the author's other work, I'll pass.
Joseph is the community recluse. He has been burnt several times before and acknowledges his short comings. His biggest is a limp but he is a well read man and not afraid of hard work. The book leads you through the doubts of Joseph and the need for Silvia to show Joseph how good they can be together.
It is not badly written and is clean. My lack of enthusiasm stems I guess because I felt it read shallow. Intentions are pure but why would an englisha woman think Amish was living? I feel more time was needed to explain Silvia's past. She speaks to her mom once and the conversation was not one that lead you believe there wasn't some level of love and concern. Silvia shows up with car and phone not what would be accepted as an Amish woman. Yet no time is spent on how dealt with this.
In fact, it read like any woman could just join in the Amish community after a few weeks. I needed more to feel drawn to the couple. I like my men more confident and for him to lay the road and instead it was all Silvia all the time. I did find it on the freebie list and read it in a few hours. Enjoy!
This book wasn’t even a good short story. It ended at 75%, and the rest was a preview of another book. It had the plot to be a good novel, but that never developed. I found the romance pretty unrealistic, Silvia unlikeable, and much of the story unreasonable.
Then the 1st Amish unmarried male she meets, she falls for. And this story is more of an Introduction to the other books in this series.
She is a Christian yet, not knowing what the Amish actually believe or how they live -decides she wants to be Amish, does not sound right.
