With the aspect of inheritance versus environment faintly present in the background of this tale, Charlotte Hubbard explores what might happen to an Amish-born girl who is raised from a very young age by an English couple. Now a grown woman, she is told of her Amish heritage and returns to her home town and her former family to explore her roots. Needless to say, the appearance of this stranger in Goth makeup and dress, claiming to be the long-missing child and sister of a Plain family attracts much attention in the Plain community. And even though the Amish strive for a simple life that conforms, circumstances don’t always lend themselves to that way of life. What makes this tale so interesting is that the author illustrates how people of varying religions and different lifestyles can still be accepting of each others’ beliefs and become good friends despite their differences. A heartwarming story that never becomes clichéd or sappy, this tale is sure to entertain.
