Product Description

Capable and optimistic Molly Zook has a slight issue with control: She doesn't like giving it up. So she's chafing against her mother's wish that, to save the family farm, she marry Mervin Mosier--especially after she meets Leon Fisher. He's from Montana but is working in Molly's district, training horses at a nearby ranch. He is tall and muscular, with a confident demeanor. Molly has never met anyone like him, and he seems to feel the same about her.

Determined to let nothing get between them, Molly decides the best course of action is to get Mervin to fall back in love with her best friend, Hannah. Molly organizes a weekend camping trip hoping to bring them together, but things quickly go awry and it seems Leon and Hannah might be falling for each other instead. Will Molly keep struggling to control everyone and everything around her? Or will she learn to let God handle the twists and turns of her life?

    Gosh, Minding Molly was almost a little scary. Scary because Molly reminded me much of myself with her desire to control and her frustration with the people that won't listen. OK, so I am not as organized as Molly is, chore charts? Nope, nuh uh.

    Until Minding Molly I had only read the Amish stories that Leslie Gould co-wrote. I'm really glad I picked up this book and I think I'm going to try and read the previous books in the series. And also you never know, I just might read a little Shakespeare, part of the inspiration for this book, too.

    You know, I was a little surprised by this book. One thing you don't see very often in Amish stories is depression and/or mental health issues. I liked how Leslie Gould handled it with honesty and sensitivity.

    This was a great Amish coming of age story. Molly is already a responsible girl but she has a lot of growing up to do and with the help of family, friends, a fella from Montana, and a horse, she does just that.

    (I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers through The Book Club Network for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)

    In the pages of Minding Molly we step into an Amish community taking a slower pace in life. At first glance, the book seems like a whimsical retelling of A Midsummer Night's Dream. However, there is a lot more to the story than the similarities with William Shakespeare's play. Molly Zook is still dealing months later from the death of her father. Her whole family is. Not only that but their flower business is hurting and they may have to sell the farm, also, her mother is showing signs of not being well. So with mounting medical debt, and the desire not to lose the farm, Molly's mother hatches a plan for Molly to marry Mervin, their next door neighbor who also works for them. While this seems plausible to Molly, she must first consider how her best friend Hannah would feel about this since she had been courting him. Before she can fully convince herself life would be good with Mervin, in walks a Montana fellow by the name of Leon who sweeps her off her feet. With an ex-beau showing up with a new girlfriend, Mervin and Leon vying for her hand, a very temperamental sister, and an angry best friend, Molly has her work cut out for her. Will she choose her heart's desire or do what is best for everybody else. I really did not know how Leslie Gould was going to end this. I was turning pages as quickly as I could to find out if Molly ever got her happily ever after. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.

    Minding Molly is the third book in a series by Leslie Gould. However this can be read alone. It is not a traditional Amish book. The community is not as strict in its rules and the children have alot of freedom. Molly is a very strong ,determined character. Her mother wants her to marry to save the farm after her dad's death. Molly doesn't agree with her mother's choice. It makes for a very interesting book.

    I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    Molly is a planner, an organizer down to the finest detail. Her family and friends have always relied on her to have events planned well in advance so that everything falls into place. Just 2 months prior her Dat died of a sudden heart attack, and life has become one big concern. Her mamm relies on her heavily since their loss, and her mamm's recent confusion has Molly worried. With their Amish flower farm in jeopardy Molly considers plans to keep them afloat, devastated that they could potentially lose their home and land. Molly's mamm has ideas for her to marry one of the neighbor twins in the hope that together the young couple could combine properties and keep their family farm, but Molly has eyes for another and a prospective plan of her own.

    A camping trip for the young Amish teens has been planned down to the last detail, with job charts and teams assigned for their respective duties, but Molly fears leaving her mamm when she has medical tests scheduled. With her mamm in the care of her older stepbrother and stepsister, Molly and her Amish friends set out for their camping trip. Shortly after leaving, Molly's detailed planning has her friends irritable and telling her she's too bossy. Can she give up some of her control when she's put so much time and energy into making this trip successful and enjoyable? Does no one appreciate how hard she's worked? Will she hear God's voice calling for her attention?

    Leslie Gould has created some wonderful characters for the cast of Minding Molly. There's great diversity in the personalities throughout this book, and wonderful creativity that the author displays through the events in this strong story. Molly's character is tenacious and believable with her penchant for being dubbed a "control freak." The realities of Amish life are well documented and the family unit is strong, with the plain life described with accuracy and discretion. Unique and penned in a likeness to Wm. Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the author's Amish version of the story is filled with emotion that runs the gamut.

    I've read the author's other books in The Courtships of Lancaster County, and have thoroughly enjoyed each one. Take a copy of Minding Molly camping with you or just sit and relax for a while, and enjoy the charm and wit throughout this entertaining book! This book is a stand alone novel, although you'll be missing out on some great reading if you miss the others in this entertaining series!

    Molly Zook is a very controlling and bossy young lady. She tries to come up with a solution to help save the family farm after the death of her father.

    Miss Zook has a difficult time trusting in God's timing and His direction for her life especially when it comes to the right man for her.

    This is a sweet story about Molly and her friends as they spend time together as a group. Although Molly was a nice girl, she got on my nerves several times throughout the book. There are some good lessons in the novel which made this a good read.

    Mervin was my favorite character because he is such a kind, caring young man.

    I received a copy of Minding Molly from Bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
