    " Although no one can compare to Beverly Lewis's amish novels, Brunstetter does tell a wonderful story of helaing, forgiveness and finding love. "

    " Predictable, easy read. Doesn't ask much of the reader. Wish it had more content. Amish but hardly. "

    " An inspirational novel set in the Amish communities of Western Pennsylvania and Kentucky, involving the lives of the brothers of one family. First introduced in the first novel in this series, "The Journey," the family is now saddened by the death of Samuel's wife Elsie who was pregnant with their fifth child. Samuel is deeply committed to his wife and family and has given his heart wholeheartedly to Elsie and their children. Her death is devastating to him and he accepts his brother's invitation to come to Kentucky to find a new start, away from all the tragic memories of his life with Elsie. This novel is another wonderful journey into the inner workings of the Amish community and its families, the close ties and friendships, the worries that they will remain faithful to God in all they do, their personal and communal efforts to life lives that are wholesome, righteous, and respectful of themselves and one another. In this second novel there are also scenes wherein Samuel and Esther, a woman he has met and is attracted to in Kentucky, interact with an "English" woman who is also going through some difficult emotional and familial struggles. This is obviously one of those wonderful stories that help the reader get in touch with their finer selves. There are also obvious references to the Amish faith and the way it is lived out in their practical experience, their reliance on Scripture and prayer, their concern that what they do has been "discussed" with their Heavenly Father, and their desire to always think the best of one another, even in the midst of crisis or deep disappointment. This is the kind of book you can give to your junior-high or high school kids to read, but is also very uplifting and one that made me think more carefully about the way I relate to people in my circle of friendship.

    " Overall I liked it, Samuel drove me crazy at times... I felt like the story was draggy in places. Anyway, still looking forward to the next book in the series :). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan Bolen | 1/12/2014

    " Followup to book one in the series. Loved the story line. The only thing I didn't like was I felt like she spent too much time having Samuel feel sorry for himself even after he moved to Kentucky. Overall not a bad read. Nice how everything came together in the end. "
