The Amish Quiltmaker's Unconventional Niece by Jennifer Beckstrand


Mattie Zook always stands up for what’s right—which is why she’s been exiled from her Pennsylvania Dutch home to her Aunt Esther’s farm. Outraged at local discrimination against the Amish, she’s using her rumschpringe to run for town council. Esther can only hope that sensible local farmer Freeman Sensenig will help Mattie—and keep her from going too far. But Mattie is soon finding her new campaign manager all too appealing . . .
Freeman never thought that the standoffish, opinionated Mattie would care so much about others. Even more amazing, their differences are somehow making her campaign successful—and have him hoping for more of a future with her. But unexpected obstacles and a sudden romantic rival will put their growing closeness to the test—and give them only one chance to truly reconcile their heart.

My Review

Mattie Zook may be Amish, but she can't stand injustice and keeps making stands, the reason she is now staying at her uncles in Colorado.

She is not here very long when she is at it again, she is supposed to be a pacifist, turn the other cheek, well, when it comes to one person hurting others, she can't stand it! Thus she ends up running for the City Council, can you just picture it? An Amish young woman in government!

Enter Freeman Sensenig, he is Baptized, will he risk being under the ban, or will he end up helping Mattie ? He is living the life of a young Amish man, farming and living his everyday life until Mattie.

With the humor I tend to expect Jennifer Beckstrand had me chuckling and page turning with another of her delightful reads!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
