it was amazing
Read from May 24 to 26, 2012

I got this e-book from Netgalley. I think the cover represents the book well depicting the sun shining down on Noah and Rose as they kiss in the corn field where they secretly meet.
Their attraction for each other is there as soon as they meet. However their story is one of forbidden love, because Noah is Amish, and the Amish do not court/date the non-Amish.
Noah and Rose have to fight both families. Noah's family are immediately against their son having any sort of relationship with an English. The Amish call anyone who is not Amish English. There are many rules and regulations about Amish life that prevent Noah and Rose from being together officially.
Then from the English side Rose's family do not want her in a relationship with the strange Amish boy from the neighbouring farm. Obviously there is a conflict of life styles.....but Noah and Rose know they are in love and they want to be together no matter what.
So are they found out? Do they find a compromise where they can be together? Can both families come to a compromise and accept the relationship between Noah and Rose?
You will have to read the book to find out. So what did I think of the book? I loved it! it is written really well, in a way that one minute you are on the different families side, then you feel swung to be on side of Rose and Noah. then you don't want them to be together and then you want their relationship to work. You really do feel the turmoil that is happening.
So did you enjoy the book? Loved it Would I recommend it? Yes! Do you want to read more by Karen Ann Hopkins? Definitely Would I read more in this series? Oh yes! can't wait to know more!

Due to be published 19th June according to Netgalley but Amazon says 26th June for Paperback and 6th July for Kindle
