A Romance from the Heart of Amish Country

About This Book

Annie Martin loves the Plain ways of her Old Order Mennonite people, like those revered by her beloved grandfather. Retreating from a contentious relationship with her mother, Annie goes to live with her Daadi Moses in Apple Ridge.

But as spring moves into Pennsylvania and Annie spends time amongst the cherry trees with the handsome Aden Zook, she wishes she could forget how deeply the lines between the Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonite are drawn.

Can Annie and Aden find a place for their love to bloom in the midst of the brewing storm?

My Review:
Nice pleasant read. This book gives some insight about the difference between the Old Order Mennonite (which I knew nothing about) and Old Order Amish. Of course this is a love story where both parties risk the shunning of their own group which  will cause problems for not only themselves  but possibly their families. The book also touches on disabilities, family relationships and trusting God even when you don't know why bad things happen. If you like to read Amish stories I would recommend this book for you.
