East Amana, Iowa
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?
I loved this book. It's easy to get caught up in the story. Love the two main characters and how different they are but how much they care about one another. The secrets and the questions about the past do lead to interesting conclusions.
I had never heard of the Amana colonies until I started reading Judith's books. For further info about them clink on the link.
Stars out of 5 : 4.5 Great book, well worth reading, will recommend it.
