ABOUT THE BOOK
Amy King--young, engaged, and Amish--faces difficult challenges in her life when she suddenly loses both of her parents in a house fire. Her fiancé, John Detweiler, persuades her and her sister Nora to leave Lancaster County and make a new beginning with him in Harmony, Maine, where he has relatives who can help the women in their time of need.
John's brother Thomas and sister-in-law Sally readily open their home to the three newcomers. Wise beyond his years, Thomas, a minister in the district, refuses to marry Amy and John upon their arrival, suggesting instead a period of adjustment and counseling.
During this time Amy discovers an aunt who was shunned. She wishes to reconnect with her, but this puts a strain on her relationship with John.
Can John and Amy find a way to live in happily in Harmony before making a lifetime commitment to one another?

MY THOUGHTSImagine losing your parents, moving away from your sisters...to a place you've never been and moving in with your soon to be in-laws. Stressful.
I enjoyed Amy's outlook throughout the book, she remained happy and took the changes in her life far better than I would have..her fiance, well, he changed a bit and at times him and his brother were not so easy to like, and Amy's sister, well, she's just plain trouble!
A very enjoyable read with fun and heartache, I'll be looking forward to the next book that Mary Ellis writes!
