I read this on the Kindle

I had not read any of this authors books before & while yes this is in the Amish Genre it not a full Amish story like some but not fully a Englisher Romance

This is about Katie & she runs away from her Amish family & roots also from Karl who she is going to marry

12 years later they meet up & in true fiction style they still have a thing but when her dad is taken ill she goes home to see him he passes away & Karl is there to not only pay his respect but

This was a very light romance, was listed as Christian romance. Very easy read, 170 pages. Two people left the Amish life and twelve years later they find each other again. A few minor bumps and they get married. Cute story, quick to read, unfortunately I probably won't remember it a year from now.

I liked this story and even as I read it, I also knew it probably wasn't for everyone. Why? Because it shows faith and reliance on God in action. Not everyone wants to read that or likes to even. But I did and also found that I liked the personalities of both Katie and Karl. They were sweet, faithful and both people of integrity. Their lives had changed so much since they left their community but there were still some good things that remained unchanged too. It was interesting to watch some of t ...more

Katie and Karl have loved each other since childhood, but when Katie was 17 she ran away wanting a different lifestyle. Now it is 12 years later and Karl is buying a house and Katie is the realtor.

As they realize they still love each other, they grow closer.

This is an extremely inspiring story, they love God so much and give over all their issues to Him. I loved how they prayed for their relationship and their families. They made God the center. Wonderful story.

When I began this novel, I didn't realize it was a former Amish romance. I've read MANY Amish romances, but this was a first where two former Amish reconnect after many years. I really liked this audio book. I want to read more from this author!!

Sweet and straightforward

This is a sweet romance between Katie and Karl. A tale of growth and difficult choices. Christian faith plays a prominent role. A nice easy and very clean read.

Fantastic Book

Two Amish had parted ways for 12 years and meet again. The meeting and what happened after was very touching. Very nice, sweet book.

A Love Story

A bit too predictable for my preference. Made for slow reading at times. But good insight to the Amish lifestyle.

How long will Katie run from the Amish life, family expectations, and love? Then Karl leaves the Amish life too and becomes a real estate lawyer. Katie is a realtor. Does the shock of meeting up again after all these years mean anything? . After 12 years can Karl forgive her and give her a second chance? This book was an awesome quick read. I loved the story theme of love, forgiveness, and growing in God. I was given a copy for an honest review.
