Wow. This book is not your typical Amish novel. Or atleast, it wasn't to me. It's not that romantic type of Amish love story filled with laughter and love. But it is an Amish book that I won't soon forget. It is a raw and emotional novel of the Amish's Rumspringa stages. I say it is raw and emotional, because, when you think of Rumspringa, you think of the Amish teens doing their running around years experimenting with cars and drinking and hanging out with their English friends, haivng their feel of the real world and then returning home to their families to settle down and live a happy Amish filled life, but in Amish Snow, Roger Rheinheimer brings us to a different kind of running around filled with crime, and drugs, and gangs. One that isn't so pleasantly filled with the loving open arms of family.

When I started out reading this, I was shocked. This author has true amazing talent. But, don't think for a minute that this is the normal Amish story that we are used to reading. I liked this book because it brings a different perspective on the running around years and what comes of them some times. The author adds history from long ago and how the Amish came to be, making this book filled with lessons and historical bits.

Though, I am a HUGE fan of Amish novels that are sappy and love filled, I still would recommend that you read a copy of Amish Snow. It is well written by a very talented author. I give Amish Snow 4 stars.
