My Thoughts on this Book!

I enjoy Cindy Woodsmall’s books because they always have a unique twist to them. And this one is no different. Long time friends Aden and Annie were secretly attracted to each other and had been for a long time, thought they could not let one another know because they could never be together for a lifetime because of their religious beliefs. When Annie’s mother suggested Annie go stay with her grandfather who lived next to Aden’s family, Annie started helping out in the family restaurant. After both Aden’s mom and Annie’s grandfather figured out that they were spending too much time together, they knew something had to be done. Would they forbid the two to see each other? Is there a way the two can commit to one another for life? For those and more answers, you will need to read the book.

I love Cindy Woodsmall’s books and this one didn’t disappoint. Cindy pens a story of forbidden love between two plain people, with characters that are so real and believable that you hurt with them, and want to pray for their relationship to succeed. The reader will see that difficulties come to all people, even the Amish.

Though I’d rather read a long book that a novella, I am glad I had the opportunity to follow this part of Annie and Arden’s journey in their lives.

I received this book free from Waterbrook Press to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
