This book follows in the recent trends of Amish Christian fiction. It's only natural for trends in adult fiction to move to children's fiction. I loved learning more about the culture of these unique people and seeing how it all worked. The author provides an outsider's view to the customs of the Amish people, and I enjoyed that. The description is vivid and the characters pure. Characters learned from their mistakes and sought to be better. This book is true wholesome fiction.
Some problems I had with this book was that I felt like there was no real mystery about it. Many of the points in the storyline were obvious, and I never really felt like I was on the edge of my seat about what would happen next. Many times the story seemed a bit dull and drawn out. I read the whole book through, but it was difficult.
All in all, I rate this book 3 stars out of 5. I also recommend it to anyone age 8 up.
