You must pick up a copy
Mary Ellis grew up close to the eastern Ohio Amish community, Geauga County, where her parents often took her to farmer's markets and woodworking fairs. She loved their peaceful, agrarian lifestyle, their respect for the land, and their strong sense of Christian community.
She and her husband now live close to the largest population of Amish in the country--a four-county area in central Ohio. They often take weekend trips to purchase produce, meet Amish families, and enjoy a simpler way of life.
Mary enjoys reading, traveling, gardening, bicycling and swimming. But her favorite pasttime is snorkeling, which she seldom gets to do living in Ohio. She is a former middle school teacher and a former saleswoman for the world's best chocolate company. Now she writes full-time and wonders why her house is still dusty and her garden has so many weeds. She is currently working on the New Beginnings series. Book 1-Living in Harmony is set in Maine and released in August. Book 2-Love Comes to Paradise is set in Missouri and will release in Feb 2013. Book 3-A Little Bit of Paradise is set in Kentucky and will release in July of 2013.
I am Mary's number on fan.
I fell in love with this book right from the start. The very first page has the words to the song Amazing grace ( Which I LOVE).
And the very first chapter has Rachel leaving Missouri heading to Kentucky ( Which I am a huge UK fan). So I knew this book was going to be a favorite of mine.
Boy was I right, I feel in love with Jake and was sad at one point in the book I will not give anything away. I soon became happy because the ending I did not see coming and I loved it. I always love when an Amish story turns out much different then most books do.
You do not want to miss this book. I HIGHLY recommend this great work of fiction.
I gave this book 5 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the author herself for my honest review.
