Accidentally Amish by Olivia Newport

Accidentally Amish
Accidentally Amish by Olivia Newport

From Goodreads:

 Escape the helter-skelter of the modern culture and join software creator Annie Friesen, hiding at the home of an Amishman. With her high-tech career in jeopardy, Annie runs from fast-paced Colorado Springs—and straight into the hospitality of San Luis Valley’s Amish community. There she meets cabinetmaker Rufus Beiler, and the more time she spends with him, the more attracted she becomes. When Annie finds she shares a common ancestor with Rufus, she feels both cultures colliding within her. But is her love for Rufus strong enough for her to give up the only life she’s ever known?

My Take:  This book is really two stories in one.  One is the modern day story of Annie as she accidentally meets the Beiler family while she is hiding out away from a hostile takeover of her software company by her partner and her boyfriend.  The other is the story of the Beiler family ancestors who have come to the new land of America so that they can practice their religion.  I personally enjoyed the historical story much more than the modern day story as I found some of what happened in the modern story a bit unbelievable.  I would recommend this story for the historical story alone and I highly recommend it if you like Amish stories.   

I received an egalley from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
