About The Book:
She never imagined a simple change could be so complicated...
Middle Amana, Iowa, 1881
When her parents decide to sell their home and move to the Amana Colonies, Jancey Rhoder must make a difficult decision. Should she give up her beloved teaching job and her carefree life in Kansas City to go with them?
Her suitor, Nathan Woodward, doesn't want her to go, but Jancey feels she must give this new life a try. Her mother is sick, and these next few months may be the last Jancey gets to spend with her. But will this move spell the end of her relationship with Nathan? And when life in Amana is far more mysterious and challenging than Jancey expected, will she choose to return to the city, or will she make this unique place her forever home?

Once again, I was taken to the world of Amana Colonies through Judith Miller's newest release, A Simple Change. This book has a little bit of mystery, history, romance and enough twists and turns to please anyone who reads it. It was a quick read and I enjoyed it thoroughly, due mostly to the amazing writing style of the author, who made me feel like I was right there experiencing life just as the characters did. Though part of a series, you will not feel lost if you have not read the first book, A Simple Change works well as a stand alone novel. If you are a fan of historical or Amish fiction, this will be a great book to add to your wish list!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
