The Amish Nanny: A Book Review

About The Book:


Bestselling author Mindy Starns Clark and coauthor Leslie Gould offer readers The Amish Nanny, Book 2 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Plain women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.
Amish-raised Ada Rupp knows it’s time to make a commitment to the faith and join the church, especially if she wants a future with the handsome Amish widower Will Gundy.
But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.
Anxious to learn more about her forebears, Ada enlists the help of a young Mennonite scholar named Daniel, but even as she develops feelings for him, she cannot get Will from her mind—or her heart. At a crossroads, Ada must decide what she is willing to give up from the past in order to embrace her future.

My Review:


Another fantastic Amish Fiction novel that I am so glad I had the opportunity to read and review. I have really enjoyed learning about the simplicity of Amish living through fiction. And this most recent book about Amish living is not a disappointment in any way, shape or form. With delightful characters, a really dynamic storyline and themes such as the importance of family, chronic illness and making faith your own, there is something for everyone who enjoys Amish fiction. With a strong sense of history woven throughout the book, you will be brought back to the history of Amish and Anabaptist worlds with fantastic detail.  Also included is a wonderful discussion guide, perfect for book groups or individual reflection.


I highly recommend this, the second book in The Women of Lancaster County, and cannot wait to read the next one.
