I love these books written about the mountain Amish of Pennsylvania. They are written with love and understanding by an author who was raised in the area. The words make the mountain come to life and you feel like you are walking through the meadows of wild flowers and the forests of animals.
I give this novel 5 Blue Ribbons on Romance Junkies' website because of the feeling of the possibility that miracles may come true. I would love to find a mountain like this to call home and release all my troubles.
