I had a smile for most of the book. So Yes I recommend this book.
Greta Goodloe live in the Amish town of Celery Fields. It is tough time durning the great depression. Greta is thinking that tomorrow her banns to Josep will be read in church. They have been dating for five years.
Josep is walking her home when he stops and says he can't marry her. Greta says if you want to wait another a year she guess it will be alright. Josep says never and walks away.
Greta realized he was serious and that it was right under the black smith's window. She goes into make sure Luke won't tell anyone what he over heard. Breaks down in front of him.
Luke asks her if he can give Greta and her sister Lydia a ride to church in the morning. Greta does not want his pity. Luke says he is interested in courting Lydia.
Greta thinks that will get some of the attention away from her and thinks that would be a good idea.
Lydia has other ideas. Lydia thinks that Luke would be better for Greta and asks him to pray on that. If he agrees he can come courting to thier house at night on the porch but while everyone will believe he is courting her he could take the time to get to know Greta and see if that would work.
Lydia noticed his attention to watch Greta and Lydia wants to be loved just not a good marrage.
Josep is starting to court someone else but he can't help still looking at Greta and wants to pick off where they ended.
I like how the Amish come together to help each other in times of need. But the bannished is a harsh thing to do. I don;t know if I could do that to ones I cared about.
I like the characters in the book. I love Greta laughter and how she brighten the place up and she loves to take care of others.
I would like to read more books by Anna Schmidt in the future. Especiallt Lydia's story.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
