An Amish Beginnings Novel
Suzanne Woods Fisher
Anna begins the journey to America with several fellow Amish. But she doesn't want to go. She's required to go because she is the only one who speaks English and must act as an interpreter. But she's leaving behind her only family, her grandparents. She hopes to find a way to return to them when her duties are finished. But delays, complications, and a carpenter named Bairn seem to get in the way of her dream.
I'll be honest and admit that I'm not a huge fan of bonnet fiction. But I have read this author before and enjoyed her. So I thought I'd give this book a chance. I'm very glad that I did. It definitely isn't typical for the genre. The characters had depth and were real. The details painted a picture instead of just telling the story. There was drama, intrigue, and faith. It was an interesting twist on bonnet fiction that I actually enjoyed reading. If you enjoy reading about history or about some of the immigrants to America, you'll enjoy this book.
I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
