This was my first Amish trilogy and let me tell you, I loved it! Beverly Lewis is so talented when it comes to really showing her readers Amish life and I will most definitively be buying more of her books! Besides the fact she showed me so many things about the Amish life I didn't know, the whole story was great and really grabbed me! As soon as I read the first book, I ran and purchased the second which led to the third. Amazing is definitively the word for this book!
