This was the first book from Linda Byler that I ever read. I loved it so much I went right out and bought the sequel! This took me by surprise with Linda's twists and turns! The relationship between characters is fabulous, and the ending could not have been foreseen! This book is heartbreaking in parts, mysterious, and shocking in others. Fabulous all the way around! I did have a few issues with the editing, WARNING: possible spoiler alert, but editing error alert! The horse Nevaeh was changed f...more
This is my first Amish romance book in a genre I only learned about recently. It is written by an Amish woman, so you really get a sense of the every day life of the average Amish woman, of the philosophy they have over life and death, and of the relationship that families have. I never knew they had phones in little outside kiosks or that Amish could work for non-Amish. I learned about how the Amish date and how the young Amish entertain themselves, and I was even surprised to read that they ca...more
I was looking forward to reading this book on my kindle, but I didn't know it would be this good! I used to live not far from some Amish and Mennonite communities, and having some Pennsylvania Dutch relations on my paternal side made me even more interested. This was a first. I'm going to admit that I've known for a while about Amish books like this one, but I've never really had to time to read it because I usually prefer other genres. I'm not going to go into great detail, but I will say that...more
I loved this story!Book 1 of Sadie's Montana was awesome. Linda Byler style of writing has such a wonderful flavor that you think you are sitting right next to the characters in the story.All of her books will just pull you in if you are a fan of Amish Fiction. Maybe it is that Linda Byler is Amish and therefor can tell it all so truly. Linda's books are not some bland filler of words (Not saying that today's top Amish Authors are like that) like some.I just thoroughly enjoy Linda's books and ca...more
I've read three of Linda Byler's books, but I suspect this is the last one. Of all the Bonnet Fiction writers, Byler is the most authentic in the nuances of Amish life since she knows them personally and directly. As a writer, there are gaps in her plot logic, and some issues are resolved much too easily for the depth of the issue portrayed, e.g. her Mam's mental illness.
Good book, written by an Amish woman that lives it everyday. It shared some culteral things that I didn't know. Most of the Amish books I have read have a setting in PA or Ohio this one was in Montana. Overall good book, looking forward to the next one in the series.
This book was slow moving for me in the beginning. I think this author has a different style of writing that she goes back and forth between memories. It made me feel lost. I really got into the story about 40% thru the book and then it got pretty good with the storyline. Loved the addition of a mystery and the "wild" horses.

Linda Byler is a new-to-me author. I have always loved horse stories, so really enjoyed this one along with the Amish storyline. Sweet story and I look forward to the next book in this series.
