it was ok

There were several issues I had with the novel. Jenny's character made no sense to me, she is supposed to be a modern woman, educated, well-traveled, and I'm going to guess a reporter on a national scale which is no small career feat. Yet she shows little political understanding, they don't even mention which war, ect. and gives up her career in a heartbeat to marry Matthew. If she didnt want to travel any longer, why couldnt she have gotten a job as a reporter for the local station or magazines? Why did she have to give up her career altogether?

I don't know, to me it seemed weird she gave up everything to be baptised and married, especially since she only spend two summers with her Amish grandmother. I don't know much about the Amish, but why did she have to convert for them to marry? I would think she would eventually feel resentment towards Matthew, especially with all of the new rules she will have to follow and no longer able to drive a car, travel overseas, and be involved in the world. She is supposed to be an intellectual, while he admits to having very little interest in the outside world.

I personally would go stir crazy, I want to know what is happening, to travel, ect. To feel like a part of the world.

I got the book free for the Nook, definitely not one I would pay for...
