What a sweet short love story. Another great creation by Lori Copeland.
This young boy Jonas with an English background has nothing in the World to build his future on but dreams and plans. But despite the lack of resources Jonas borrows his employers buggy and takes a leap of faith and makes his first step into realizing his dreams by taking Caroline on buggy ride. The surprise that waited on him around the corner could have been only from God Himself.
Do you have dreams and plans but no means to realize them? Take a first step in faith and see what God can do with you..
Lovely and encouraging story.
I like the barn scene when Jonas is milking the cow. Allowing the barn cat to have a "taste" is outstanding! Anyone who has ever seen this in a barn will be able to connect immediately. Of course, the milk does get on the cat's whiskers....
I thought the quote "Silver only shines with hard work" depicts the Amish people's way of life.
Despite his young age, Jonas has plans to leave Berlin. Will he be able to persuade Caroline to travel West with him?
Everyone in the community describes her as being the most attractive girl there. Apparently she has no shortage of offers. But she picks the boy who has the least to offer to take her home. Because.... Well, we don't know. And since we're told he can't even talk to her himself but must have a friend do it, and can only be alone with her during this short trip, it is assumed these two have never spoken more than a greeting to each other, despite her being his lifelong crush.
Then he proposes, offering nothing but a dream of possibly getting some good land in the future and she accepts without question, just a bit of teasing.
Very well written, it certainly kept my interest and I loved the details about Amish life, but I don't think I'll be pursuing any more of this series.
Funny scenes of all the teasing that poor Jonas has to endure by the other young men when they learn of his desire for Caroline. Poor guy! But what develops is a gentle and shy relationship. Humor, too. Unfortunately, for the rest of the story I have to go to the author's full books. But I'm so glad I've gotten acquainted with her series about the Amish of Apple Grove.
