I would like to thank Laura J. Marshall for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
First of all I have to tell you that I absolutely love this cover! It is so beautiful and so different from the typical covers on books of Amish fiction. I don’t always let the cover influence me, but I found myself eagerly anticipating reading the book, expecting it to be well written and out-of-the-box like the cover. And I was not disappointed.
The story was written in a very simple and restful fashion. The misunderstanding was so simple, and yet complicated things so much. I found myself smiling throughout the story.
I loved Caleb’s tender heart towards God and enjoyed the descriptions of him plowing the field and his great love for the land as well. Hearing his thoughts had me considering the Amish way of life in a new and different way from what I have before.
There were a few quotes I came close to including. This is the one that won:
He knew some kept clocks, but his brief experience with one had left him feeling that the clock was telling him when to do everything and that was not the job of a machine to do.
