I enjoyed this book, it was great seeing Katie grow into a confident young woman, who found the love she was looking for. But this book has a twist in it, and if you haven't read it, I am not sharing that twist. But I will say this is not your typical Amish romance book. I really enjoyed seeing the trip abroad through Katie's eyes. The story told of what that Anabaptists forefathers faced for their choice of religion, was eye opening. A wonderful story, and looking forward to the last book of the series. 4 stars from this reviewer.
