Anna's Crossing by Suzanne Woods Fisher ~ Review

Anna's Crossing (An Amish Beginnings #1)Lucie's Review: 

Anna Konig and her family are headed to the New World aboard the Charming Nancy.
Bairn is the ship's Scottish carpenter, who despite their rough meeting, befriends Anna and her brother Felix. Bairn quickly bonds with Anna's eight year old brother, teaching him to speak English in preparation for the New World.
But on the long journey their friendship will be tested, and they will both be changed.

I liked how this was a different kind of Amish book and focused on a very interesting time in their history, as many left their homes across the waters to build a new life in America.

I thought it was kinda funny how when Bairn taught Felix English, he started speaking it with a Scottish accent!

Anna was wary of Bairn at first but comes to depend on him, as their friendship grows. I really liked that way that she was open about her faith, yet didn't feel the need to preach at him.

There are funny moments, in this book too, as well as history and romance.

Overall, an Amish tale from a different view, and place in time. Well written, with likable characters, and a great plot. Great for fans of Amish fiction who also love a good historical fiction.
