Review | The Memory Jar

 My review:
We join the Amish community in Minnesota, again, there are familiar friends and faces here.  Annie's store is a big part of this story, as it was in Tricia's other books.  Sarah Shelter is not living her life to the fullest, as her friend Patty would want, instead she hides herself away in the kitchen at Annie's cooking and baking.  Dreaming her dreams of owning a bakery, but not doing anything to fulfill those dreams, when a hike up Robinson Mountain changes that, separated from her friends, due to spraining her ankle, Sarah begins to fear they have left her, and she starts down the mountain taking a different trail, however soon she is lost, but Jathan, one of the many bachelors who come to Minnesota to hunt, finds her and stays with her.  Realizing that she is attracted to him, they spend much of the night talking waiting for daylight to begin their trip down the mountain.  What started on the mountain, blossoms fast, but a sudden illness calls Jathan back home to Berlin Ohio.  Will Sarah, follow him and fulfill both of their dreams, or will the past keep her frozen in time?
I enjoyed this book greatly, it was different from most Amish books, where the Ordnung is the main topic of the book.  This book was about two people finding happiness and themselves.  It was a good book, with a good story!  4 stars 342 pages US $14.99
