This was an interesting variation of the Amish genre which has become so popular in recent years. An international female reporter who has traveled the world as the main character was an intriguing twist.
The characters were true to life and their roles were richly woven into the fiber of this story of love between two lonely people from two vastly different worlds.
My only nagging doubt was that only one person objected to the relationship between the main characters. From the reading that I have done on this culture, there would not have been such quickness to accept and "redeem" this English woman.
Otherwise, it was a good read that warmed my heart with the goodness and gentle ways of the Amish culture.
