Makes you think

A lot about forgiveness and how it may or may not impact the transgressed. I enjoyed the book very much! Very well thought out by Sarah Price. .

This was a very good book. I liked that it had a lot of details; however, I wish that the book would be a little longer.
The four part story hinders character and plot development.

Bullying. Rumors. Lies. Gossip. All can be hurtful, but it's how you respond as a victim that everyone seems to be watching more than the Bully.

In The Clothes Line , Sarah Price writes about bullying in one of the Amish communities of Ephrata, PA. Priscilla Smucker is newly married and is trying to run her home and help Stephen with the farm chores. While not being Susie's target, Susie is targeting Priscilla's friends, especially Sylvia. Sylvia is on the receiving end of the mean comments from

This is the last book in Sarah Price's The Amish of Ephrata series. Throughout the series the young protagonist, Priscilla, is taunted by another member of the community.

Yes, the stories read like most teen books, but I believe that's the point. Each book carries a reminder: You cannot control other people, but you can control your reaction.

These are very fast reads, so don't expect a lot of depth. Actually, given the length of each book, Price does a great job of building a detailed story in

Short novella continuing the Amish of Ephrata series. I really enjoy Amish fiction. I really like Sarah Price as a writer. That said I think this series has run its course. It has for me. This is a continuation of the bullying by Susie and the heartache she causes.
I simply had trouble finishing this novella...Yawn

Enjoyable but ends abruptly

The stories was okay but there didn't seem to tie up the ends. the series could have actually been one book, yet needs another section to tie everything up.
