Set in 1847, this novel features two very different young women. One has lived all her life in the closed Amana community (similar to Amish). The other has arrived from Chicago with her parents, but does not want to be there at all.

The two women work together, and their attitudes and personalities are contrasted as they slowly get to know each other. The writing is quite interesting, and the setting felt real, although one of the women felt rather too good to be true, and the other so materialistic and selfish that it was hard to have any sympathy for her.

However, themes such as honesty and integrity shine through, and it encourages the reader to think about what is really important in life. Unsurprisingly there's a lot of Christian conversation and principles, but it wasn't too preachy. The ending is a bit contrived, but mostly encouraging.

I was able to download mine free, some years ago, and as a light book to read while travelling it made a pleasant diversion.

The contrast between the two main female characters created an interesting tug-of-war between values, beliefs, and motivations. But though so different, they are not so different. The struggle to find what both really wanted caused many struggles.
SPOILER:
Although one character's resolution seemed forced and incomplete, it was an interesting read. ( )

Don’t confuse the residents of the Amana village with the Amish; they are not the same. Though they share some similar beliefs and habits, there are also distinct differences. In this work of historical fiction, author Judith Miller gives us some background into understanding the workings of the people of Amana. Johanna has grown up at Amana, but Berta has been thrust into the community as a teenager. Johanna has been assigned to help acclimate Berta to life there. But in the midst of both their struggles with this task, Johanna discovers a life-changing secret. The first in a trilogy, the author has set up a thought-provoking story with engaging characters. She has also achieved a good balance between presenting a good story while maintaining a Christian overview. ( )

A lovely story with very realistic characters

A lovely story with very realistic characters

I wanted to read this book to be able to see life from within Amish communities. I was pleased by how lovable the two main characters are and even more, I found their faith charming to see. I have found that many Christian fiction books push their faith upon the reader but Ms. Miller manages to make it an essential part of the character development without it feeling forced. I will gladly keep my eyes open for the other books in this series. ( )

The combining of two worlds, two girls and the bond that comes to be. A bit of a mystery, a parents mystery or secret the best... Wonderful read, held my attention AND I read it in one sitting... ( )
