In the first book, "The Amish Midwife", we met Lexie. In the "Amish Nanny" we learn more about Lexie's sister Ada Rupp. Ada is facing many changes in her life and we get to watch her grow and learn more about her family history and about herself.
I enjoyed learning more about the Anabaptist Movement and their place in history. I think you will enjoy meeting Ada as much as you enjoyed meeting Lexie.
The writers, Clark and Gould, work seamlessly together with one voice keeping the story line cohesive and interesting.
This Book was sent to me by Harvest House Publishers in exchange for a Review.
Amish-raised Ada Rupp knows it's time to make a commitment to the faith and join the church, especially if she wants a future with the handsome Amish widower Will Gundy.
But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.
This book is the 2nd book in "The Women of Lancaster County" Series. This was such a good book as you go with Ada Rupp in her adventures of her life. As Ada finds out in the first book, she is adopted and has the opportunity to go to Switzerland along with Alice who is Will Gundy's grandmother.
They try to help Daniel and George to find an agreement on the land in Switzerland and this land is very important to Ada and Alice, since their ancestors had a part in the land originally. Ada also meets her birth mother and at first I was really mad at her birth mother, Giselle, because she didn't want anything to do with Ada. My heart went out to Ada.
Daniel has feelings for Ada but it is not the same for Ada. The only man she loves is Will Gundy. As the book goes along, Alice collapses and is in the hospital so Will needs to know this and then he shows up to help out.
Ada and Daniel keep on looking for information about their ancestors and it is quite a journey for both Ada and Daniel.
This is a great book in trying to find their history and it is one you will thoroughly enjoy. I sure did enjoy it, wouldn't it be something to find out about your ancestors? I have wanted to know more about my ancestors also.
I would recommend this book to all my friends and family.
I enjoyed reading the second book in this series, the first The Amish Midwife started this series. This books starts where the first one ended, and loved that we continued on with the previous characters. You did not have to read the first one to enjoy this one, everything is explained.
What an enchanted book this one is, hard to put down! Ada Rupp has really had a hard life, she never really had a childhood, as she has an inherited blood disorder. Since finding her sister Lexie, she now has new meds and is now relatively healthy.
This Amish girl ends up doing a lot of traveling, such fun, and lots of chuckles! She has a bit up spunk for having had a lonely life up to now. She wants Will Gundy, a widower with 3 children. She has admired him since she was a young girl, but now she fears her rival Leah will win his heart. With a twist of fate
she ends up traveling to Switzerland with Alice, Will's Grandmother, and Christy, his daughter. On the trip she meets Daniel Hart, a young Mennonite, who takes a real liking to Ada.
There are a lot of twists and turns to this story, but so very enjoyable.
I was provided with a copy of this book by Harvest House Publishers, and was not required to give a positive review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the series. It takes up the sister discovered by the main character in the first book, and follows her own geographical and spiritual journey. That journey takes her first from Pennsylvania to Oregon, and finally to her ancestral home in Switzerland. Along the way she explores issues of calling, identity, family, trust, and love. I particularly appreciated the clever way the authors wove the history of the Mennonites and Amish in the Old and New Worlds into the heroine's quest to solve a family mystery and ascertain her own calling. Well done.
