In Beverly Lewis' latest edition to the best-selling "Annie's People" series, we again head to Amish country, to tiny Paradise, Pennsylvania, where life is anything but paradisaic for Annie Zook and those around her.

In the previous title, The Preacher's Daughter, we learned that Annie's father, one of the local preachers, gave her an ultimatum regarding her beloved artwork: abandon it for six months and come securely back into the Amish fold, or be "shunned" (expelled) from the Amish church. Annie makes the heart-rending decision to abandon her artwork and do what is right in the eyes of the community.

Unfortunately, as Annie is struggling with her decision, she also has another internal struggle to contend with. Handsome Ben Martin, an "Englisher" (non-Amish person) has recently moved to Paradise from Kentucky, and has caught Annie's eye. She does seem to have a knack for trouble. What will Annie do - follow her heart, which is drawing her ever closer to Ben and back to her art, or follow the strict guidelines of the Amish church, the only life she has ever known?

Lewis masterfully weaves yet another story that leaves the reader with many unanswered questions and eagerly anticipating the next installment in the "Annie's People" series.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Shaley Melchior, 2006
