Review: Accidentally Amish by Olivia Newport
4 STARS This book is a little bit different as it followed almost 3 storylines in one. I liked it even though I cried in parts. Thier was no sex scenes or swearing. Annie Friesen was scared of her lawyer and boyfriend. He tried to sneak extra papers for her to sign. He wanted to go to a meeting with her and she kept saying no. In fact she planned not to go but to leave town and go to where a rental car would be thier. But Rick followed her and when it was clear she was not going to the meeting kept calling her,texting her and was getting closer. She was figuring another way to get around him and parked in a hotel and threw the woods she could hear him shouting at her. She saw a truck in a different lot and it had a tarp she crawled in between the lumber and went where ever the truck was going. She heard a lot of the talking between the two men when they stopped. She snuck out when one men dropped off the other. Annie saw a barn it was night time and dark really dark. The horses made noises and when Rufus came to check found her. Annie told him she stowed away and asked where she was at. He told her she was close to small town and she could spend the night. He went and got her blankets and she slept in the straw. The next morning Annie was still thier when Rufus little brother and mother saw her so was invited in for breakfast. Annie with her cell phone could get the internet and she also got it on laptop but after a day she needed to plug in soon. She moved to the motel and stayed thier till a accident left her with concussion and hurt back. Rufus took her back to his family home. Annie was really attracked to Rufus and she loved the peace but she had a hard time with some of his beliefs of turning the other cheek. It Flashes back to when Rufus ancestors came to this country and some of the experiences they had. The choices they all made back then and how it affects the ones Annie faces now. The other story is Ruth and the choices she made to go to school to be a nurse. The story did not end with everything wrapped up. Would love to read more about Annie journey as she learns more about the Amish and want to know more about Ruth. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 10/01/2012 PUB Barbour Publishing, Inc.
