Beside Still Waters

About Beside Still Waters: Marianna Sommer believes she knows where her life is headed. Nineteen years old and Amish, her plan is to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron Zook, and live in the only community she's ever known. When Marianna's family moves from Indiana to Montana she discovers life and faith will never be the same. As she builds an easy friendship with local guy, Ben Stone, Ben not only draws her heart, he also gets her thinking about what loving God and living in community is all about. As Marianna struggles to find "home", she also encounters God in intimate ways.

My review: The prologue pulled me into the book from the start. I enjoy Amish fiction and this one is different from most. Not only does the Sommer family leave their community, but they move to a community that is not afraid of the English. The struggles and emotions they face are real. Tricia Goyer has written in such a way and developed her characters so that you will be drawn into their lives and feel their joy and pain. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from B&H Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
