Love Finds You in Liberty, IN (Love Finds You series)
Love Finds You in Liberty, Indiana - Melanie Dobson

This book was really good, one of the best in the Love Finds You series. The author obviously did her research and paid attention to detail to make the time period come to life.  It is hard to imagine living in the time of slavery, but this book shows how dedicated people, including the Quakers, worked to help people to safety on the Underground Railroad. 

Besides the Underground Railroad aspect, this book also gave me more insight into the lifestyle of the Quakers.

It was very engaging and tense, it was almost impossible to put down!  I even lent the book out to some friends who don't normally read this genre and it was enjoyed by all.

The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club (The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club #1)
The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club - Wanda E. Brunstetter

I'm an Amish fiction fan, but this book was different. I don't want to say it was bad, it was just different and didn't hold my interest as well.  It followed several characters, most of them non-Amish, and then one Amish woman.  So the story was constantly jumping around and most of the time it was not in the Amish setting.  This did not give much of the setting or feeling of being in an Amish community that we normally get from Amish fiction.

Also, without really having a main character, I personally just didn't get as engaged or care so much about what was going to happen to the characters.  Again, I think that might have been partly due to the choppiness of jumping around so much.

Another thing is that usually we will have a strong romance in Christian/Amish fiction of this nature, but not in this book.  There was one small, undercurrent of a romance that was really not explored in much depth.

This book was interesting and well written, and it was okay, it just wasn't as interesting to me as like the Shunning series or Sisters of the Quilt series. I also saw the musical that goes along with the book and I did enjoy the musical, but again, not as much as the musical that goes along with the Shunning/Confession book series.
