Some books grab you from the minute you begin reading and don t let you go until you ve finished not in the I can t put it down sense but in the I m still thinking about it even though I have put it down sense This was one of those books All through the story I could feel the tension in the choices before Hannah and the other characters and I honestly had no idea how things would resolve until the last moment I wasn t even sure which way I wanted it to resolve at times What s the writing flowed so naturally that I often forgot I was even reading if that makes sense I guess you could say I became fully immersed in the world of the storyHannah s world centres around her family her faith and her home and they are all beautifully and realistically portrayed Each is also a cause for concern Hannah s mother still suffers freuent bouts of depression following the death of three of Hannah s younger siblings nine years ago As a result Hannah shoulders much of the responsibility for keeping the household running and looking after her younger siblings Her sister Liesbet is increasingly determined to escape the confines of the Amish way of life and has been secretly meeting an Englischer teamster whom she plans to marry refusing to heed Hannah s warnings And Adam the Mennonite boy who has been Hannah s best friend from childhood has begun to speak to her of marriage But unless he becomes Amish accepting his proposal would be turning her back on her faith and her familyWhen Hannah s father announces the family will be moving west to help establish a new Amish community Hannah cannot bear the thought of leaving the home their ancestors built If she accepts Adam s proposal it will allow her to stay in Conestoga Creek But would that be worth abandoning her faith and being separated from her family When she discovers that Adam is assisting escaped slaves via the Underground Railroad she becomes even uncertain The Good Book tells them to obey the civil authorities and yet Adam says he is obeying God by helping his fellow man When he needs Hannah s help as a guide she finds she cannot refuse and suddenly things aren t so black and white any Could this really be God s will for Adam And what would that mean for any future marriage to himInto this mix steps Josef Bender a redemptioner nearing the end of his term who also plans to travel west and purchase land He makes it clear from the outset that he is looking for a wife and wishes to court Hannah Hannah barely knows him yet she cannot deny the pleasure his company brings What s he is Amish But when Hannah shares her desire to stay in Conestoga Creek she learns he can be stubborn too He is adamant his future is in the west and he wants Hannah there beside him Over the winter as the family prepares for their journey west Hannah s decision becomes even difficult as those around her make choices that have far reaching repercussionsI loved the way this novel presented such a wide array of characters and beliefs without pronouncing judgement on them Each of the characters acted in accordance with their own convictions and the conseuences of their actions spoke for themselves And through it all we see the interplay between God s law on one hand and his mercy and compassion on the other The characters were well drawn the story was engaging and the writing was seamless I really could not ask for and look forward to seeing where this series heads nextThank you to Revell Books for giving me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
