I am always happy to receive Amish books for review, its one of my favorite genre's regardless of the author ( I've never found a poorly written Amish book!), I love the simplicity of their life style and their approach to living as Godly as they can. I also love how important family is portrayed in the lifestyle of the Amish in these books, the emphasis they have on the importance of family relationships is one I deeply appreciate!
"Hannah's choice" was no different, I loved the love that they portrayed in the novel, but it was also grounded in a realistic way. There were imperfections, mistakes and rebellions throughout the story, it made all the characters come across more realistic and relatable!
I could really feel Hannah's struggle as she fought with herself to discover what she truly wanted, while at the same time trying to be the daughter and sister that her family needed. I found that the book was very well written, and had me fixed to it until (sadly) the last page, it was one of those books that I didn't want to end! (although it pleased me to see that its part of a series and I excitedly look forward to reading more from Jan Drexler!!)
