This week I'm sharing...


Here's the synopsis:
When Hannah dares to love across the boundaries of tradition, will she lose everything?

Despite being raised in a traditional Old Order Amish family, seventeen-year-old Hannah Lapp desires to break with custom, forgo baptism into the faith, and marry outside the cloistered community. She’s been in love with Mennonite Paul Waddell for three years, and before returning to college for his senior year, Paul asks Hannah to be his wife. Hannah accepts, aware that her marriage will change her relationship with her family forever.

On the evening of their engagement, tragedy strikes and in one unwelcome encounter, all that Hannah has known and believed is destroyed. As she finds herself entangled in questions that the Old Ways of her people cannot answer, Hannah faces the possibility of losing her place in her family, in her community– and in the heart of the man she loves.

 Here are my thoughts:
I received this book in the book swap before little Skeeter was born and dove into it.  And oh my gosh, it did not disappoint!  I read it all in one sitting (granted I was on bedrest, ha!) and definitely intend to read the rest of the series!

Glad to hear a good review! I just put a sample of this on my Kindle last week as a reminder that it looked good. I think I'll take the plunge and buy it for my next book! :)

I always see these Amish-type books and think they'd be an interesting read. Although I haven't yet actually picked one up.
