This story is more of a coming of age than a romance—although her feelings for Jacob keep changing as time passes. Her new English friend, Eliza, is also good for her in many ways. Eliza doesn’t really challenge the Amish beliefs or lifestyle—she is very curious. Her curiosity makes Judith really look at and explain their beliefs to Eliza. This both strengthens her resolve as well as clarifying and helping her embrace her Amish lifestyle.
A delightful book that I didn’t want to put down. I loved the story and the depth of the characters. I look forward to reading more books by Diane Craver and more of the Dreams of Plains Daughters Series.
