The Englisher appear the focus of this story or mostly part of the story. Beverly does do this gradually. Annie Zook has some struggles to keep the promises that she made with her father who by the way is the preachers.

 

We go through the struggles with Annie. There another struggle that going on as well. Zeke is struggling with something and it does take the whole book to figure it out. There are surprises and twists throughout the book.

Becoming Bea
Becoming Bea - Leslie Gould

Becoming Bea is about a girl and family. It looks into the relationship of Bea and Ben. They both have trouble communicating with one another. Bea hears Nan has just had triplets from a member of her community.

 

She wants to help out and so offers. There is matchmaking going on. Will Bea lean to communicate or will she not. She believes she made to be a spinner or old maid as the Amish like to call it.

 

The author does a decent job. Thought the plot of the story make me wonder what it really about. We do know that Molly is married. Bea does not want to move and be with her older sister and her husband.

 

Like I stated the author is good. It just do not know what the main plot of the story is about other than Ben and Bea have problems with communications. You figure that out early enough. Now if the author plot is to see the couple can figure it out and finally get together. Maybe what it was about. But to me it was unclear exactly what the plot was about.

 

The author does wonderfully for Minding Molly and Courting Cate and their plots. It not so confusing as Becoming Bea. Maybe it to see how Bea grows from a girl to a young woman.

 

You have the option to read it and decide yourselves. I believe this is an okay book. My only problem with the story and book is the plot nothing more.

When the Morning Comes - Review for 2014
When the Morning Comes - Cindy Woodsmall

When the Morning Comes is about a young girl in her Amish community. I can't remember the details of the story. I will give you what i can remember about it. I know it about Hannah Lapp. Does get what she wants or does she not.

 

She stays with her aunt for  bit and ponders about going to live the englisher. It the Amish term for outsiders. Will she goes back with her fiance and her family she left behind. Doe her fiance love her or not? You would need to read the book to find out. I know it a sweet story.

 

You learn about how the Amish live and her why of life. I am fascinated by it myself, so that is why I enjoy reading book about the Amish and Amish fiction. Cindy Woodsmall does wonders for her books. She also does a good job with this one as well. It just been years since i read the book that I honestly can't remember much.

A Lancaster County Christmas, Suzanne Woods Fisher
A Lancaster County Christmas - Suzanne Woods Fisher

I enjoyed this Clean Romance/Amish story. I received this as a gift and voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. I thought this very interesting with it's many pro's and con's of several topics. It is uplifting and suspenseful at the same time. Add a child and a touch of humor. What a great mix.I only wish I had a little more time to read this sooner.

Review: A Letter from Lancaster County
A Letter from Lancaster County (Lancaster Discoveries) - Kate Lloyd

A Letter for Lancaster County is a good sweet story. It seems about a redemption and learning to deal with death and grief. What a lovely plot. Katie Lloyd does a good job with it. We get the perspective of the main characters named Rose and Angelina.

 

They get a letter from their aunt Sylvia. Both girl are dealing with their own problems and grief of their mother. Will they learn that letting go and have faith? There a budding romance going on as well. What could that be and can Glenn and Rose being a match? You will need to find out by reading.

 

Can Angelina figure out what going on at home and her husband and family. To find that out, you will need to read to determine that. They find out that their Aunt Sylvia is sick, Will Rose decide to stay or will see go back to her home in Washington? This is a lovely and sweet story of love, friendship and redemptions.

 

Book themes for Calan Gaeaf:
Read any of your planned Halloween Bingo books that you didn’t end up reading after all, involving witches, hags, or various types of witchcraft –OR– read a book with ivy or roses on the cover, or a character’s name/title of book is / has Rose or Ivy in it.
