Another Lewis novel that will delight the reader of Amish fiction. The focus here is lovely - two women parted by circumstances beyond their control. The coming of age plot is well thought out and the details, particularly of the physical surroundings, add a charm and authenticity. I have to say, it's refreshing to read some Amish fiction that does not rely heavily on the romance plot for its substance. You will truly come to care for the two girls and their inner struggles.
