| About the book: Book one in the Plain City Peace series.|
It's 1971, and Betsie Troyer's peaceful and predictable life is about to become anything but.
When their parents flee the Amish, nineteen-year-old Betsie and her seventeen-year-old sister Sadie are distraught. Under the dubious guidance of a doting aunt, the girls struggle to keep the secret, praying their parents will return before anyone learns the truth-a truth that may end all hopes of Betsie's marriage to Charley Yoder.

My Take: This book takes a time of history that hasn't been examined much by many as it pertains to the Amish. The 70's was an upheaval for everyone who lived through it. It was enjoyable to see this era through the eyes of the Amish. I enjoyed the intrigue and the relationships of the characters in this book. Nice enjoyable read and if you like Amish books then you will find this one a refreshing addition.
