About the book -
In Mescota County, Michigan, an angelic visitor's words inspire Judith to a future she never imagined. After a barn raising accident, Judith Fischer’s convinced she’s met an angel. However, her attempts to convince others end up frustrating her Old-Order Amish community. Only Andrew Lapp believes her, but the rest, including Levi Plank, the man’s she’s waited to marry, demand she forget the nonsense. Meanwhile, her younger sister Martha has taken a fancy to Levi and sees her sister's controversy as a perfect distraction for turning Levi's head.
In a dream, the angel tells Judith she must choose her path. As her faith continues to grow, so do her feelings for Andrew. Will she continue to place her hope in the angel’s message, even if it means losing all she knows and loves?
My Review -
Great book! I thought it was a very original idea. I believe this is part of a series and I certainly am interested in reading more of these wonderful books. This was a very sweet read, quick, and pleasant.
Great character development. I really liked Judith and I am glad that she "stuck to her guns" and didn't back down at the threats of the others. I hated Levi, what a jerk! But I guess there are even jerks in the Amish world too. I loved Andrew, what a perfect nice Amish boy, the type every parent would like their daughter to marry. I love the way he stuck up for Judith and tried to protect her - he was the night in shining armor, the hero of the story! The ending was no real surprise, but as I have said before - I don't need a surprise ending. I like my books to end the way I like them!
