It is wonderful to read something that is clean and yet romantic. The story line did drop in a few places, fast forwarding in the plot, but overall very good. The author had a way of letting you into the mind of both characers as the story went on. A most enjoyable book. Would love to see the story continue.
I have been intrigued with the Mennonite faith since we had a Mennonite gentleman assemble our newly purchased Amish gazebo kit to be erected beside our pond. What precision and care he took with his work and what a delightful, humorous conversationalist!
This book will not give you an in-depth theological understanding of that denomination, but it will give you a delightful look at how two entirely opposite groups within the same faith can eventually come together on common ground. Many of the characteristics of each are very similar: same work ethic, same humble devotion to community, same respect for the things of God. However, their approaches to the things of the world reveal the breadth of change that has moved some congregations away from the Old Order-the Old Way.
Although some of the story line gets dropped at certain points, the story of love, joy in worship and deep abiding faith is woven throughout. This book was a delight in many ways. It has lessons for all of us in loving our brothers of other denominations.
