During the first few chapters of this novel, I have to admit that I wasn’t very engaged with it. I was so saddened by the fact that Sarah had lost her best friend, and even though the location was West Kootenai, Montana (which is a favorite setting for me after reading Tricia’s “Big Sky” series), I wasn’t able to even connect with the setting very well. For some reason – and I can’t put my finger on why – the circumstances surrounding Sarah being lost in the mountains didn’t hold my attention.

As Sarah and Jathan’s relationship developed, however, I became much more involved in the story. I liked how Sarah and Jathan actually talked to each other over the course of their relationship, for the most part. The conflict in the story was based on each of them dealing with their pasts and from outside, concrete circumstances rather than misunderstandings or assumptions.

One of the reasons that I like to read Tricia’s Amish novels is because of the way that she approaches the Amish way of life. She doesn’t shy away from stating that you don’t have to be Amish to have salvation. I also love the interaction of both Amish and English in the West Kootenai setting.
