If you enjoy stories about the Amish, you will enjoy this delightful story. Set in the Amish community of Hickory Hollow, it follows the life of a young Amish woman, Katie Lapp, and her Amish family. Katie faces the loss of the only life she has ever known among the Amish people when she discovers a mysterious secret that has been kept for many years. She must decide whether to follow where the mystery leads and face possible banishment from all her friends and family or forget all about this mystery which threatens to unravel her perfectly plain Amish life. I felt drawn in with this character during the early pages of the novel and greedily read on to the end within a few hours. I was captivated by the trials and brave choices the main character faced in order to remain true to her own longings and to her faithful God. After reading this first book in the trilogy, I eagerly awaited the publishing of the sequel, The Confession.
