To be honest when i picked up the book i was a little weary about it being all that good, generally i love Amish stories but i wasn't sure if this was one. (I'm still not quite sure, but i think it is! lol)
Thankfully this book turned out to be fantastic, and while the characters lived lives quite different from the way i live mine, i found it was easy to relate to them and to sympathize with their struggles. Both of the main characters Johanna and Berta were quite easily likeable and realistic. Plus while the story provided some excellent Biblical lessons it didn't come across as preachy, which i really appreaciated about this book!
I will have no problem recommending this book to anyone looking for a good, wholesome read!
