Book Description:

In the closed communities of the Amana Colonies, hidden truths are about to change everything for two young women….
East Amana, Iowa
1892

When Karlina Richter discovers that a new shepherd will be sent to her village, she fears she’ll no longer be allowed to help her father with the sheep. She’ll be relegated back to kitchen work, stuck inside all day. Her fears increase when the new shepherd shows little interest in the flock–or in divulging why he’s suddenly been sent to East. Is he keeping secrets that will impact Karlina’s family?

Dovie Cates visits the Amana Colonies to learn more about the place where her mother grew up. But when Dovie begins to ask questions about her mother’s past, no one seems willing to reveal anything, so she decides to take matters into her own hands. Will the answers she finds spell disaster for her future plans and the longings of her heart?

My Thoughts:

When I first started to read this book, I thought that it might be something like the series Judith Miller did with Tracie Peterson. Although the series aren’t bad, I just found that they couldn’t keep my interest long.

Anyways, this book wasn’t like that at all. I really enjoyed it actually.

When Dovie’s mother died, she left a lot of questions unanswered for Dovie. Then Dovie decides that she wants to visit her mothers’ people for the answers. The Amana Colonies. What she finds, she didn’t expect.

Dovie finds a man that is willing to break the rules to be with her. She also finds that she is falling for him. But how will it work? She is in outsider and he a member of the colony. Will love find a way to put them together or will they be separated forever?
