To Love and to Cherish

Wow!! I have never read a book that has so much happening in it.  Buggy accident, tornado, barn raising, rebellious son coming home, and leaving,a nervous breakdown,  a missing child in a snowstorm and that is not even a drop in the bucket.  This book has lots of action.  An Amish Action Adventure book,  truly at time it was a bit overwhelming however, Kelly Irvin does an awesome job of keeping everything straight and tying the story together.  This was a great story of learning that just as everyone does, the main female character in this story (Emma) struggles with  forgiving and has for years.  It began with her intended, leaving the faith, he had already been baptised, so he was not in rumspringa, but left to see what was out in the world.  Emma struggles for four years to forgive Carl, but it is harder than she thought, and friends marrying and having babies makes the wound open up over and over.  The death of her parents, even adds to the burden of forgiveness.  How will she forgive the driver of the truck that struck their buggy, and how will she forgive God for taking her parents away?  A great story that you have to read!!  I loved the book and look forward to reading more books from Kelly Irvin. A 4 star rating is what I give this book! This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
