Library Journal Review

Ada Rupp is set to marry widower Will Gundy and commit to the church when she receives an offer to travel to Switzerland as a nanny. Ada is thrilled with the opportunity to learn more about her Amish ancestors. Aided in her research by young Mennonite scholar Daniel, Ada soon develops feelings for him, but she can't forget Will. She will need to make some major decisions about whether to live in the past or make a future with Will back home. VERDICT The authors' series debut, The Amish Midwife, was a Christian Book Expo best seller. Fans of that title won't be disappointed with this one. Its even pacing and thoroughly human characters will also satisfy those who can't get enough Amish fiction. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
