(Starred Review) \"This follow-up to The Preacher\'s Daughter, which revolved around Annie Zook\'s dramatic struggles between her Amish beliefs and her passion for art, finds Annie falling for an Englisher. Annie\'s outsider friend, Louisa, also returns, taking refuge from the world with the Plain People after a broken engagement. Soon Louisa is attracted to a young Amish man. Master storyteller Lewis adds greater depth to her characters and draws a compelling portrait of the insular Amish community and its complicated interactions with outsiders. The ending clearly sets the stage for the next chapter in the lives of Annie and the Plain People in Lancaster County. This title can be read as a standalone, but those new to the series may want to catch up with the first installment. Highly recommended for all collections. This Pennsylvania-born author now lives in Colorado.\"
