Publisher's Description

Bestselling Author Judith Miller Debuts New Series Set in the Amana Colonies

When Karlina Richter finds out that a new shepherd will be sent to East Amana, she fears she'll no longer be able to help her father with the sheep. She'll be relegated back to kitchen work, a job she dislikes. Her fears increase when Anton Becker arrives and shows little interest in the flock--or in divulging why he's been sent to East. Dare she trust Anton to help her father, or is he keeping secrets that will impact them all?

After learning that her father will be transferred from Cincinnati to a job in Texas, Dovie Cates decides she wants to visit the Amana Colonies, where her mother spent her formative years. She writes to relatives still living in the Colonies and is invited to spend some time there. Soon after her arrival, Dovie meets Berndt, the handsome young man who delivers bread to the kitchen house each day. But when Dovie begins to ask questions about her mother's past, no one seems willing to tell her anything, so Dovie decides to take matters into her own hands. Will her decision spell disaster for her future with Berndt?

    I very nearly gave up on this book, it must have taken until about half way through, to finally start moving. I usually have no trouble with books that take a few chapters before the story picks up, but this really seemed to drag. I even popped in here to read the reviews which helped me to stick with it.

    Having said all that, once it did get moving I found it hard to walk away from. I enjoyed learning about the Amana colonies, I have read many Amish stories and found it very interesting to see the differences and they really are quite different.

    My favourite character would have been Cousin Louise she was a good worker who applied her clever people skills to perfection in managing the kuche. I did find Dovie annoying at times, she seemed to switch from being a dutiful girl to being a self centred one at the drop of a hat. Karlina acted out of character from time to time that seemed to come as a bit of a jar to the flow of the story, but I suppose it all goes towards fleshing out the characters.

    All up though I did enjoy the book, I enjoyed the read and was happy with the resolutions of the characters.

    This is a wonderful story of a young woman who moves to the Amana Colony to find out about her mother's past. It's a beautiful story of friendship, romance, a hard working community and people who genuinely care for each other. The suspense and mystery of what really happened to cause Dovey's mom to leave the Amana Colony kept me turning the pages. A heart warming book for sure!

    I found the book to be a grand window into the life, culture and beliefs of a people who form an integral part of the fabric of what makes America the unique nation that it is.
