Changes
4 stars By Hannah, Jan 05 2017
Sadie is devastated when her parents are killed in an accident, it doesn't help that her pastor later refuses to lend her money and instead forces her into marriage. The author brings dynamic characters to life and uses the characters to develop a complex story in a simple setting. It's more the interaction between characters than the location or places that creates a captivating story.

Lovely
4 stars By Tracey, Dec 29 2016
This is such a crazy story! It starts out heartbreaking and just gets worse and worse throughout! She experiences so much heartbreak in a very short period of time that leaves you wondering how she will survive! 
The violence is an usual aspect however it brings dynamic approach and creates a different way of bringing the details to light

Interesting Plot
3 stars By Sarah, Feb 05 2016
I enjoyed this new book from Katherine Fuller. It has all the typical Amish romance elements, but follows the story of a dishonest Bishop and his family. It is clear that the author wanted to bring through themes of honesty, integrity and forgiveness. I appreciated that it seemed a bit more realistic than some novels, with not everything neatly wrapped up in a bow by the close of the story. Definetly reminded me of how amazing God's love is for us. A great read
