Can Anna Mae heed God’s call on her life, even if it means leaving behind everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves?
Ever since Anna Mae’s childhood friend Jeremiah left their Amish community, she’s questioned her own place in the Amish world. The Amish life feels as if it’s closing in on her, and with her mother trying to set her up with potential suitors, Anna Mae feels trapped in a life she’s not sure she wants anymore.
But she’s never told anyone that she longs for a tiny taste of freedom—freedom that could be very costly.
My take on this book:
Reading anything by Kathleen Fuller is a guaranteed good read. She has a knack for creating easy to care for characters and as a fan of Amish fiction I feel like she is a top notch writer in the genre. I find it handy that she always provides a glossary for German words used within the story. A solidly written plot that easily pulled me in made this a very enjoyable book to read. Jeremiah Mullet left his Amish community to full fill his dream of becoming a vet, but now he has come back to fill for the vet who ultimately helped him out while he needs to recover from a broken leg. Of course in the process he reconnects with old friends. Anna Mae is one of those friends, she has actually been grappling with what to do with her life for the last several years, of course her mother thinks she should settle down and marry, but she isn't sure what course she wants to take for her life. As she reconnects with Jeremiah one can't help but wonder where the relationship might lead. What is in store for them, he is no longer Amish, so a romantic relationship is out of the question isn't it? What does God have in store for them?
This was a solidly written story allowing the pages to fly by. There is another couple in the story that also held my interest. Even though this book is part of a series it really can be read as a stand alone story. Fans of Amish fiction will be thrilled with A Faith Of Her Own, but honestly anyone who enjoys a faith based read with solidly written characters and a sweetly progressing story should give this one a try as well!
