Book Description

July 1 2011 Women of Lancaster County (Book 2)

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 its 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amish story full of history and suspense June 8 2011
By Pamela A. Burke - Published on
The Amish Nanny by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould picks up where The Amish Midwife left off, continuing the story of the sister of the previous book's main character. Mindy and Leslie have done a great job once again!

Ada Rupp's health has improved dramatically with the help of information provided by her recently discovered sister Lexie. But the condition of Ada's heart is not so great as it appears that her plan to enjoy her long-held desire for teaching and her dream of love and marriage with Will Gundy are both hitting seemingly impenetrable obstacles. Ada begins to wonder if she might need the rumpspringa she never really experienced -- but in a different way -- an opportunity to break free from a sheltered life and see new places.

The chance for adventure comes when Ada, Alice, and Christy are called upon to make a trip to Switzerland to handle some family business. Ada is excited about the possibility of finally meeting her birth mother who gave her up as an infant. Along the way Ada meets Daniel Hart, a handsome young Mennonite with a deep interest in history, and discovers there might be a chance for a different kind of future than she had imagined.

In addition to the fictional account of the adventures of Ada and friends, this book is full of historical information about the Amish and other Anabaptist groups. That history is intriguing in itself but does not in the least take away from the enjoyment of a great Amish story. I hope this is not the last we'll hear of the interesting people in The Women of Lancaster County series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Amish story July 2 2011
By A&D - Published on
If you are interested in Amish stories, then this is the right novel for you. It is well written, engaging, and you will find the plot also interesting. The characters are not dull, and they have more depth than what usually these little novels have.
it also has a lot of historical information about Amishes.

The author Clark and Gould have done a great job of continuing this Amish story where the Amish Midwife left off and tell what happened to the sister of the previous book's main character. It is nice to see how the characters evolve in time and what happens to them.

About the plot: Ada Rupp's health has greatly improved with sister Lexie's information. However, Ada's heart is not in a good condition and she still would like to teach and if possible, find love and marriage with Will Gundy. Ada begins to wonder if she might need the rumpspringa because she might want an chance to break free from her somewhat sheltered life and see new places. The chance for adventure comes when Ada, Alice, and Christy are called upon to make a trip to Switzerland to handle some family business. There Ada meets Daniel Hart, a handsome young Mennonite and she realizes that her future might turn out to be different than what she previously expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Amish Nanny July 10 2011
By Lollipops - Published on
A cave behind a waterfall...
A dying confession...
A secret agreement
hidden for a century...

Ada Rupp is an Amish girl who knows nothing about these elements of her family's past. Instead, she has a coveted teaching degree maybe in her grasp, and her medical condition finally managed. Ada also wants to marry Will Gundy, a widower she's loved since they were both children. But things don't always work out the way she wants. Instead, her teaching job is given to another woman, a woman who also seems to have Will's heart. And Ada meets Daniel, a Mennonite scholar with a surprising request.

Daniel needs Ada's help to save an important historical site in Switzerland from being destroyed. Now Ada, a family friend, and a young child must go to Switzerland to mend a old family rift and help preserve religious heritage.

In order to succeed, Ada and Daniel must unlock secrets from the past...

I met Ada in The Amish Midwife, and was delighted to find THE AMISH NANNY is her story. It was nice to see Ada's come out of her shell and become a self-sufficient woman, capable of traveling overseas and thriving. THE AMISH NANNY is the second book in The Women of Lancaster County series, but it easily stands alone--though readers will want to read the first book to get the whole story about Ada.

I enjoyed reading THE AMISH NANNY and following her to Switzerland--by ship--and then struggling to decipher ancient documents, written in a language she couldn't read or understand, to possibly find the key to unlock her family history and a modern problem tied to it. Readers of women's fiction or lovers of Amish fiction will not want to miss this book. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars even better than the first July 5 2011
By Pam Middleton - Published on
Since reading the first book in the set, "The Amish Midwife", I've been looking forward to reading the next one, "The Amish Nanny". I was not disappointed-it was even better than the first! The main character of this book was Lexie's sister, Amish-born Ada. I loved reading about Ada and her friends' trip to Switzerland and the historical roots of the Amish there. The mystery surrounding their visit was well done too. I really enjoy anything Amish, and appreciate Amish faith even more after reading this book, seeing some of the "why they do what they do" explained so well. Ada (and indeed all of the characters) were so believable in their struggles over faith and relationships. Can't wait for book three-well done!

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not for me Aug. 30 2011
By weatherlover1 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the 2nd book in the series and I have not read the first. The main character is Ada and she has just found out in the last few months that she is adopted. She also found a way to better manage a disease she has had all her life as well. The book opens with her getting to go to her sisters wedding(she just found her sister in the first book). Once she returns she finds out she gets to go to Switzerland. She is also in love with a man who she can not have( or so she thinks). So off to Switzerland she goes. While there she gets to meet her birth mother.

This book is written in first person which is not a favorite of mine but its well written. I admit I found this story flat and boring at times. Maybe had I read the first book I would have felt differently but the characters from the first book are only in this one for a short time. A portion of this book deals with her feelings for a man named Will. She loves him but he seems to be courting someone else. The thing that got me was she never even really talked to the guy yet she was devastated about him seemingly courting another. The biggest portion of this book dealt with travel and history. The author goes into great detail about the train rides and the boat rides etc. In my option boring. Just seems there could have more depth added to the story in its place. The history lessons on Anti-Baptists was interesting. I grew up a modern Mennonite myself so I found it interesting to learn about history of the early movement of the church. The author did a great job of that.

Over all this book was just not for me. I admit I thought this was going to be more of a romance then it turned out to be. There is also some mystery involved but I found it pretty predictable. If you like books that deal with travel and history you might enjoy this book. I would suggest going back and reading the first book so you can get a better feel for the background leading into this book.
