4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you have to get away to get a proper perspective. By Beth Westcotton May 15, 2016
When Rachel decides to take a break from her family and lifestyle, she does it because she has some important decisions to make. For Rachel it's whether or not to remain Plain, to join the church, and to marry Samuel. Or should she follow the example of Aunt Carrie, who fell in love with the Englisher Scott and chose to leave behind the Plain life to follow her heart? All of us have to make significant life decisions. Although they may not be the same as Rachel's, it is interesting to see how she comes to her conclusions and chooses what is best for her. Along the way she learns about truth and forgiveness.
5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle, lovely love story
By E. Waldripon May 14, 2016
It was a very interesting read. Very "light weight", gentle and homey. No great mystery to be solved or damsel in distress to rescue, just a lovely story about 2 people in love trying to great through a rough patch in their lives and taking the time to take a break from each other to work things out. The ending is obvious, almost from the beginning, the enjoyment in this is the journey is reading about to very religious people trying to work through difficult times. I really enjoyed it.
