From My Library
Several weeks ago, hubby and I ran up to Rocky Mountain National Park to get our annual pass and happened to stop at my favorite quilt store, Cottage Bliss. This book was featured and because I love Amish stories I asked about it. The author is the cousin of the owner of the store and even though I hadn't read any of Dianne Christner's books I was anxious to start. I will say that Dianne was raised in a Conservative Mennonite church and her grandparents were Amish. This story centers around a Mennonite community and the struggles one young woman has when outside influences begin to creep into their church. I laughed as well as cried and can't wait to read the next book that is due out in February. For those friends who love Amish stories, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
