The Preacher's Daughter by Beverly Lewis
THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER was a slow-moving, but engaging tale about Annie Zook, a young Amish woman coming of age, and her English friend, Louisa.
The pace of the novel, I think, was deliberate — the Amish live a life that is much slowed down from the life we live. With our Emails and other forms of quick communication, it’s hard to imagine life without all of our “conveniences!” But, Ms. Lewis has done an excellent job of showing us the Amish way of life.
I especially liked the little bit of mystery thrown in halfway through the book! I really needed to know how things would turn out!
A great read!
