What I Thought:
I don’t normally read the whole genre about Amish women, Quaker women, etc but I decided to give this one a try and I’m really glad that I did. This is a story that takes place back in the frontier days,and this girl Amanda is trying to make her way out west to be able to minister to the Native Americans. It was a pretty inspirational read more about overcoming obstacles and challenges with Gods help and basically never giving up. It was a nice, light, inspirational read and I enjoyed it. The only real downfall is that I thought that the main character herself was a bit on the boring side, so I’m glad that the author switched it up a little bit by giving us a narration through the other characters eyes as well as Amanda’s. Speaking of characters.. I really liked the characters in this book, basically everyone but Amanda. I just felt that they had way more interesting stories, and a more unique view on things; to me the other characters were what made the book.This book kind of reads like a Hallmark movie, but without the cheesy romance, which I liked. I recommend it for anyone who is a fan of historical fiction, and if you love Hallmark movies!
In a Nutshell:
Lovely inspirational read about a girl overcoming obstacles with God. If you love Hallmark movies. you’ll love this book.
