I will give away my ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) to one commenter. Be sure to read the QUESTION at the end.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the 2nd in Marta Perry’s Keepers of the Promise series. Another interesting parallel story. Her Amish heroine Judith is trying to keep the peace between her husband (Isaac) and his younger brother(Joseph) whom they have raised together.
A deep sorrow has wounded Isaac which complicates his relationship with Joseph and catches Judith in the middle of two that she loves so much.
At the same time Judith is reading through an old family diary about an Amish widow caught in the crusade to do away with the old one-room schoolhouses where both Englischer and Amish children traditionally learned together. When the new high school is built, the Amish are put in the crosshairs of the battle between modern and traditional.
This was such a true to life story about a family’s struggles to work through pain and conflict. And also a story of culture clash which we seem to be going through again.
I highly recommend this to any reader who loves a story about family and bravery.
