I have read many Amish books, as you can see by my order history. This book is one of the best books that I have read. It has suspense, tender romance, humor, respect for the elderly and the love and simplicity for a girl with Down's syndrome. They have such a loving spirit and it was represented well in this book. It was a book that I could not put down. I love the series books and look forward to each book, but I also loved this book for its entirety in that it was a book that contained individual characters that is not locked into another book coming. The author needs to keep on writing books like this one. Very, very good. I would recommend it highly.
