My Review

We begin this book delving into the lives of the Riehl family, and in particular Drusilla. This is an Amish family living in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area, and we are going to be following this family as they go about their everyday life.
We follow Drusilla as she helps her father with haying, barn chores, and then helping her mother with housework, laundry and baking. We also go with Drusilla while she visits with her cousins and best friends and twins Miriam and Namoi. We go to church services, and gathering and singings, along with barn raisings etc., all part of their life.
Drusilla has just turned eighteen and is the eldest child in her family, along with being the oldest comes a lot responsibility, including helping her very pregnant mother.
A very entertaining read, and I hated it to end, but I know there are more books to come in this series. We also meet Drusilla’s sister Hannah who is ready to sprout her wings; she really gives her mom a hard time, but loved how she pulled back when her dad was near.
Also wait until you meet what is probably a new love interest Caleb, and how she ends up owing him. So sweet!
Don’t miss this great book, and the start of another amazing series by Sarah Price. You won’t be disappointed!

I received this book through the Author, and was not required to give a positive review.
