My Review: An Amish tale of family and heart.
Quiet Sadie Lapp bring home a baby from her trip to Ohio, sending more than a few tongues wagging. Along the way Sadie finds herself caught between the affections of two very different young men.
After reading The Keeper I just knew that I had to read its sequel and I was not disappointed!
I loved so many of the characters and even though I missed Menno terribly, I appreciated how he was remembered and still remained a part of the story. Because he was one of my favorites from the first book.
This is one of those books that I believe that I was better able to appreciate because I had read the first book, because it picks up not too much after the last book ended.
I loved how each of the characters had their own distinct personality, M.K. hadn't changed much, that's for sure!
I loved the relaxing but engaging pace, which I believe is perfect for an Amish novel, because it captures the gentleness of their way of life. I believe that Ms. Woods Fisher gets that perfectly :)
Uncle Hank is still one of my favorites, because his jovial spirit never failed to bring a smile to my face.
Overall I loved this book and how there were so many lovable, diverse characters within a close knit family. This is a charming, engaging, heart-filled read that I highly recommend!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

Hi Faye! I started to write a comment...then became engrossed in the Yellowstone review right below the one for "Haven." My husband and son are driving through Yellowstone today...and loving it! But...the reason I popped by was to thank you for your lovely review of Sadie's story. For mentioning "Keeper" (and dear Menno), too. I have a hunch you're going to enjoy M.K.'s story ("Lesson"). It'll release in a few months. Hope you'll be on that blog tour, too! Warmly, SuzanneReplyDelete
Suzanne, how awesome! I hope they enjoy their trip! I am very much looking forward to M.K.'s story, I'm sure it will be quite the adventure!ReplyDelete
Thanks you for stopping by!
