I won this book and I consider myself very lucky that I did. It was a contest on Suzanne Woods Fisher's blog. Now I will have to go back and read book 1 and then book 3. I really enjoyed this book about an Englisha girl, Debbie, who is determined to join the Amish community. She faces trials in her pathway to baptism. Some of the things she experiences include the young Amish man, Alvin, whom she has feelings for, has left the community without a word and without an apparent reason.
Paul, a handsome Amish man has his cap set for Debbie and it is expected that she reciprocate his attentions to be accepted and considered to become a member of the faith. This is not her wish and that being so, she is in a big of a difficult situation.
Lois, the daughter in the family that she is staying with, leaves home to follow the English lifestyle. This, of course, is not an acceptable thing to do and causes Debbie more problems, in that it is assumed that Debbie's English influence may have caused this to happen.
Debbie hopes that her plans won't be disrupted and comes up with a plan to stay in the good graces of the Amish community. Will this be enough or will she be asked to leave by Bishop Beiler?
A very good book. Did notice a couple of typo type errors, but this didn't distract from the book. I really enjoyed reading it and it was very hard to put down!
