Series: Amish Turns of Time
Author: Olivia Newport
In a struggling Amish settlement on the harsh Colorado plain, Abbie Weaver refuses to concede defeat to hail, drought, and coyotes, even as families begin to give up and return east. The biggest challenge of all is the lack of a spiritual shepherd and regular worship. When Abbie discovers the root of a spiritual divide that runs through the settlement, she faces her own decisions about what she believes. She must choose between a quiet love in her cherished church, passion with a man determined to leave the church, or imagining her life with neither.
With wonderful character growth, Newport takes us along on this journey where we feel the joys and pains of the people. A story that will stay with you.
This is not just an Amish fiction book. This is also a historical fiction novel. This is not a fluffy, feel-good book that is typical to the Amish fiction genre. There is a lot of depth to it.
The ending had me completely shocked and slightly distressed. I thought about this book for days after finishing it. This book is one to read and remember.
