really liked it
Read in August, 2009

The plot unfolds with a successful and very busy woman, Sarah, finding out that her Amish sister has passed away, leaving her the legal guardian of her five Amish children. There's a clash of cultures, and a determination of priorities as Sarah works out the situation. The book is labeled Christian Fiction, so there's more of an emphasis on her spiritual journey in the book than in the movie. The story made me think about faith and culture and choices.

The book also made me want to be Amish. Seriously, those people live a simple, uncluttered life. I doubt I could embrace all that accompanies the Amish lifestyle, but their attitude towards material possession is so refreshing. One part of the book talks about their desire to clear out more things from their already sparse garage, otherwise they'd spend their whole lives clearing up and cleaning around their things... hmmmm
