This is the best yet! It is full of love, intrigue, and restoration of the family core from the start to the present. I highly recommended this book to every reader.”
Sandy Davis Posten, Redeemed Books & Gifts
Once again authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould have engrossed their readers with a complex story of people past and present, Amish and Englisch,’ adopted and biological. The Amish Nanny contains numerous resources to help the reader gain further understanding of the Amish way of life, and will be a fine choice for any book club to undertake.”
I enjoyed reading The Amish Nanny. I feel that the author treated the Amish culture with respect. It allows the reader to see a bit into the life of the Amish. It was also written in a way to hold your attention as there was a lot of action!”
Harvey Mast, Delaware Mennonite Historical Society
As Ada said, I wanted the full knowledge of what was out there, of who I might be.’ Perhaps journeying along with her in this novel will help answer these questions in the reader’s life. I recommend this story and others by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould.”
I read these books with genuine delightfirst for the further revelations of life in the extended Amish family readers were introduced to in the first book of the series, and second for the clever way the main character's story spanned both geography and time. Well done!”
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.”
One of the many things I liked about this book was the attention given to historical details of the Anabaptists in Switzerland. I also enjoyed the way the authors showed the complexities involved in trying to live the Plain life in modern day society.
I would recommend this book without reservation.”

Lesa BrassetteGrand Junction, COAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Loved this book!December 26, 2011Lesa BrassetteGrand Junction, COAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have to tell you I am very stingy with my stars. When I give four, that's really like 5 or 6 on this scale. When I give 5, I guess that would be more like 10. So, I really loved this book. I had a hard time putting it down.
I loved the setting, the interesting characters, the plot ... you know, pretty much everything.
This was well written and those who love Amish fiction should not miss it!
