The heritage. Having read many modern-day Amish tales, it was interesting to read one in such a unique time.
The time frame. I have never thought about there being Amish people during the Revolutionary War, but it added a very unique plot to the books.
A scene towards the end. I won’t give any spoilers, but it has to do with praying for the sick, and them recovering. SO powerful
The sorrow. The entire book had a heavy oppressiveness hanging over it. It wasn’t until the last page it was happy. The Author DID say she didn’t plan for the book to be a happy one, just one explaining the terrors of life as an Amish person in the 1700s. I just like happy books, and I hadn’t seen the author’s note until the book was over.
The PG-13 sections. Surprisingly, for a historical book, this book was EXTREMELY in comfortable for me to read at some parts.
While I did enjoy certain aspects of this book, I would only recommend it to people who are fine with reading a lot of sadness.
This e-book was given to me in exchange for a free review.
