Faith faces an impossible situation: Should she do the right thing and bring heartache to nearly everyone she knows or deny her true self and always wonder . . . what if?
Sixteen-year-old Faith has worked full-time in her parents’ restaurant since she finished eighth grade. She loves her Amish community—and the romantic attentions of her longtime friend, Gideon.
When her sister seems to be getting too friendly with Englischers, and her parents are in a buggy accident, Faith wants to escape into her dream of joining the church and getting married.
But then a local newspaper runs a story about a child named Adriana who was kidnapped fifteen years earlier, and everything Faith has held true comes into question.
Suddenly the community Faith has known her whole life seems unreal. Can she even trust her own family? And how will she ever find home again if she no longer belongs in the world she knows best?

Ruth Reid is a CBA and ECPA best-selling author of the Heaven on Earth series. She's a full-time pharmacist who lives in Florida with her husband and three children. When attending Ferris State University School of Pharmacy in Big Rapids, Michigan, she lived on the outskirts of an Amish community and had several occasions to visit the Amish farms. Her interest grew into love as she saw the beauty in living a simple life.
I was hooked from the very first chapter. Of course I am very picky when it comes to reading Amish books. While I am a huge Amish fiction fan a lot of the authors have lost their way and are writing the same stories over and over with different characters. So I tend to only read the authors that come up with unique stories. Reid is one of the few I still read. Not a dull storyline or the same ole story rewritten.
In An Amish Mercies series you will connect with the characters even the ones that you don't care to much for.
The tension between Faith and her sister makes this a must read, you have to read it to find out what is going on with these two.
I must say this was a 5 star book. I recommend it.
