Wonderful Values in Book
This was fun to read and see that an angel speaks in this book. It there to help two people. It was sweet to see the two angels battle in the book. The funny things they do to get the two people to listen. I really like it with Jordan that he get different things.
It was kinda different for Rachel. Though Rachel need to understand what happened to her brother and learn about forgiving. You would be surprise with all the things that happen and what comes of it.

I love Amish books, so this one was a no brainer for me, of course I was going to sign up to review it! This book was actually quite different from the other types of Amish books I've read, while it had the same "Plain" life style portrayed it also showed a much strong view of the Spiritual world. I really quite enjoyed this book, it was very simply written which made it very easy to follow and get "lost" in! The story revolves mostly around Rachel, who stepped in to fill her dead brother's shoes and started taking on the more "manly" chores associated with the Amish lifestyle. When a stranger comes and starts stepping into her self-appointed place Rachel starts feeling pushed out and lost. Throughout the book there are tons of plot twists and turns that keep the reader going till the last page. I very much enjoyed this book!!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneezeÃÂ®.com. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Great Summer Reading
In this story Rachel Harzler and Jordan Engles are two young 20 somethings searching for answers. Rachel is Amish and Jordan is Englisch but they both have experienced hardships in their young lives and are struggling to find their way. While they may have grown up in different worlds their struggle to listen to God's will is the same. As they learn to listen they slowly unfold His will for their lives.
The story was quite engaging and had a few surprises for an Amish romance. I had difficulty putting it down as I got further in. There were times I could really relate to Jordon or Rachel's feelings and it really drew me into the book.
This was the first time that I've read an Amish romance that also had an element of "fantasy" in it. While I did see the angels purpose in the book, I did not feel that this particular element enhanced the book in any way. In some instances I found it distracting. Using italics when the angels spoke along with italics when Pennsylvania Dutch was used made the text a little busy and more difficult to read. Rachel and Jordans characters were really well done. They were relatable and Rachel's lifestyle in the Amish community really drew you in.
Overall, I felt the book was entertaining and well written. There were moments when I could see my own struggle with God and the desire to know why things happen instead of learning to accept God's will. I will certainly be reading more books by Ruth Reid!
