Celebrates the Amish of Colorado!
Oh Mrs. Wiseman! I am so glad you brought your wonderful writing skills to the Colorado Amish scene. I am particularly loving that this setting is practically right around the corner from where I love in Western Colorado! That just about covers my thoughts on the setting.
In comes the plot and the rainbow of characters introduced (and moved in from the Daughters of the Promise series) and you have a book that is not to be missed!
I couldn't put this one down. Worst part of it was that it came to an end. Thank goodness it is only the first in the series ... something to look forward to!

This book is wonderful!
Seek Me With all Your Heart has totally captured my heart. I donÃ¢ÂÂt think IÃ¢ÂÂve ever cried over a book so hard ever before than I did to this book. The first chapter has already choked me into tears.
The story does not only revolved over Emily, the main character, but also with those people who surrounds her. There was something in her past that keeps her from trusting guys. But Daniel seems to be an exception. DanielÃ¢ÂÂs rude attitude on Emily at their first meeting has triggered the fear in EmilyÃ¢ÂÂs heart that led her into shedding tears, leaving Daniel feeling so guilty. On the other hand, Daniel has also the reason why he keeps his distance from girls. And this is whatÃ¢ÂÂs stopping them and has actually made it hard for them to fully express their feelings for each other.
WhatÃ¢ÂÂs fascinating is that you donÃ¢ÂÂt only get so curious about EmilyÃ¢ÂÂs past (and also DanielÃ¢ÂÂs) and what might happen in the future, but the author has that power to get you captivated on the people in the coupleÃ¢ÂÂs lives as well. I love EmilyÃ¢ÂÂs personality. Maybe because at first, I can relate with her fear through relating with and trusting boys. IÃ¢ÂÂm also amused at how Amish people are living their life the simple way!!! Ahh! ThereÃ¢ÂÂs just too much to say about the book! ItÃ¢ÂÂs beautifully written! I highly recommend this to every girl out there especially those who doesnÃ¢ÂÂt have a good past! EmilyÃ¢ÂÂs story will teach you how to confront a painful past and live the future with high expectations for the best! The best things in life comes after we completely trust Jesus in leading our future.

Seek Me With All Your Heart
This book is the first in Wiseman's Land of Canaan series, but the Stoltzfus family is familiar from her Daughters of the Promise series. Emily and David are both convinced that they will never marry, for different reasons, but are still drawn to each other. They both fight their attraction, which felt realistic to me. I know a lot of people who are attracted to people they shouldn't be. Emily's situation is handled very well, in a realistic yet positive manner, unlike Cindy Woodsmall's Amish fiction title When The Heart Cries. There were plenty of laugh-out-loud moments sprinkled throughout the story, though I was a bit taken aback at the funeral for the parrot. I'm an animal lover, but even that was a bit much, grin. I am excited to see what happens with Katie Ann, Martha, and the others in the next book in the series, which releases next Autumn.
