Her's are always a unique perspective on Amish through history. This, set in 1917, is no exception. And it is based on actual historical events that affected the Amish church at the time.
As usual, Olivia's characters are rich, layered, and highly relatable. The romance is woven throughout the book, but what I truly enjoyed was the honest struggle of relationships, faith, what is a moral issue vs. faith-tradition, and where does grace fit into the overall equation.
Olivia does a wonderful job of writing high-quality Amish historical fiction, and captivating her readers. So even if you're more reticent to pick up Amish, do so with Olivia's. And if you're an avid Amish reader, you will truly NOT be disappointed!!
