Almost Amish by Kathryn Cushman ~ Review

Almost Amish
Lucie's Review:

This book is really different in that it's not an Amish story, or even a romance, but about people who are on a reality show...which is being filmed...thus making it far from Amish.
Susan and Julie are sisters-in-law and Susan has been having a hard time since her divorce, and taking this challenge to live "like the Amish" is her big chance to get her own segment on a big show, but she has to have one friend join her, so she asks Julie.
Will Julie and Susan survive the show or will their friendship be destroyed.

This is the story about two women and the testing of their friendship and how this experience challenges their whole everyday philosophy. There's a lot of drama, but through this both Susan and Julie comes to new realizations about their lives. There are alot of threads running through the cloth of this story and I like watching them connect.

Overall I think this book showed that "simple" isn't really that simple after all. Honestly this book wasn't really my kind of story, it wasn't slow or anything, but I guess I just strongly dislike reality shows. This was a nice book for people who like books about restoring order to their lives.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!


  1. I love the premise behind this book, although I too have a strong dislike for reality shows. It sounds incredibly different. Thanks for the introduction and for your thoughts.

  2. I've heard about this book. I am not much of an Amish book reader, but it sounds interesting. I have read Courting Cate and A Simple Winter, both a bit different from the usual Amish books. Your blog is very pretty, Faye.

  3. Thank you chaplaindebbie for stopping by. It's definitely different for sure! Courting Cate was very good, Addie's story is sure to be great :)


I love to hear from you!
