My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve wanted to read this book since a friend showed me the cover:)
I really enjoyed this book. Right away I felt connected with Marlena, and even small Jay (two separate stories that only entwine a bit but are both good:)) and I couldn’t wait to see how Boston’s story turned out.
Now I really didn’t like Nat ! Ugh he was so selfish and frustrating.
And the whole book I was hoping Marlena would get to keep the baby:)
My biggest issue was how everything came together so close to the end…..maybe it’s just me but it felt like a star trek ending….everything wraps up in the last 10 mins. Of course it wasn’t quite the same but having everything fix in a chapter or two seemed too quick to me.
I did love the epilogue though!!
Here’s the description:
Marlena needed time to let things sink in. It was beyond her how all this could possibly work out–adding the care of an infant to her daily routine. Fortunately, it would just be until Luella returned home from the hospital and was stronger.
No more than a couple weeks, surely.
Marlena Wenger’s life takes an unexpected turn on the day she learns she must care for her estranged sister’s baby. Spending the summer in Brownstown, Pennsylvania, to assist her Mennonite grandmother, and miles from Marlena’s Old Order Amish beau, she feels out of her element in nearly every respect. Yet Marlena determines to do her best and stay focused on her future, even as those hopes become drastically altered.
I received this book free from netgalley in exchange for my honest review
