A common theme throughout Amish fiction is the relationship between an Amish man and a non-Amish women, known as an Englisher. It’s a theme that has a tendency to become one giant cliche, but with this book Lewis proves why she consistently tops the list of Amish novels.

The last few books I’ve read authored by Lewis haven’t been my favorite but I really enjoyed this one. I was completely drawn into this tale, and I was thrilled by how little it devolved into one giant cliche. Michael and Amelia are both given the opportunity to develop as people, a reality that is rarely explored in Amish fiction. The characters are allowed to be flawed, allowed to stumble.
