Something New by Dianne Christner

Something New is a Christian fiction novel about a Mennonites family. I was caught up into the book till 2:00 AM.  Their is no sex scenes and show people trying to be better.
Lil is a conservative Mennonites as is her whole family except Matt.  She has moved back home, to take care of her mom who is in a bad depression and stays in bed. Lil is working in a restraunt and one day she wants to be a chef.
One day  late for work she backed up her car into a lot fancier car.
Fletch drove his boss's car to go pick up lunch when he was hit by Lil backing up.
The next time they meet is at her family's farm where he was invited to dinner. Fletch was helping her family with discount vetinary work.  Since the Hog farm was in trouble.
Fletch talked her into a date, which her family did not approve of.
Fletch's old friend who is helping to support his family's missionary work and helping him to pay for collage asks him to film sick animals for a documentary to help his animal rescue farm. When Lil catches him at it. Everything falls apart and lil breaks off from him. Her family kicks him off the farm and tells him to never come back.
This story touches a lot of issues like: Suciede,depression, missionary work, forgiveness, obidence to family, differences in churches, working through problems and service,ect.
I did enjoy the story and hope to read many more books like this one. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
