Not only that, but I felt like I didn't have time to actually connect with the characters or the story. I wasn't pulled into the book at all, and I disliked all of the characters. They didn't feel real to me. It was as if they were all extremely two-dimensional and boring to me. Maybe that would have changed if I had read more about them, but the book was too short for me to ever find out. I also know I could go pick up the second book, but I didn't get into the first one enough to bother with the second. That may have been different if the first book had been longer and more developed. Then I might have gotten into the story enough to bother with the other books.
I wouldn't necessarily call this a bad book. It just didn't feel long enough to actually grab my interest. I also would have appreciated characters that felt more three-dimensional. I'm sure some people will enjoy this book and be able to appreciate it for what it is, but I didn't find it to be developed enough to be satisfying.
The plot develops deftly, and the suspense amplifies progressively.
Rebekah's Rumspringa starts when she turns sixteen. She is given the chance to discover the city and new things, and she has to choose where she wants to continue her life. Rebekah is stuck in a dilemma; she has to decide whether to stay in the city with Braeden, her English boyfriend, and be a veterinarian or go back to her old life in her Amish community.
I enjoyed reading the page-turner, and I am eager and impatient for the release of the sequel.
The day Rebekah and her twin sister Mercy turned 16, they went to a wild party with some college students. Rebekah met an English boy named Braeden and it was love at first sight. Mercy had to much too drink and the twins had to leave the party. That was only the beginning of their adventures into the fascinating world of the English.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish fiction. This series presents a different twist on the typical Amish fiction - a most enjoyable twist!
I really enjoyed the fact that the story was first person. It really puts things into perspective. The fact that she was able to express her emotions that way was way better than if the story was to be in third person.
I think that Kristina really did her research for this book. The Amish isn’t something that people recognise all that well, and I believe that she knew what she was talking about.
I am really excited for the 2nd book, Amish Summer. If you are looking for a nice light read, this is definitely something to look at. I have to give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
The story starts off the night before Rebekah's 16th birthday. She is all knotted up inside because of her anxiety of experiencing English life for the first time. The story moves along at the perfect pace to capture all of what she is feeling as she experiences all the `first times' during her Rumspringa.
Great character development from the very first sentence. Having the ability to immerse yourself into the lives of a different culture through reading is such a rewarding experience. Thank you for allowing me to do so.
This is the story of a young Old Order Amish girl named Rebekah and the English boy Braedon that she falls in love with during her Rumspringa. Because of their different beliefs and cultures this story will keep you interested to see if they can make their dreams come true and overcome their differences.
A very warm and gentle book. Very pleasing and worth reading even though it is rather short
