My Cousin's Prayer is book 2 of the Indiana Cousins series. I am thinking that maybe I should have ordered the first book to get an introduction of the story because there seems to be a flow. But this book can also be read as a stand-alone since you will find lots of information related to the first book to give you a little bit of the history of the characters. Still, I would have preferred having the first book - what can I say I love reading a series in order... *grin*

I wasn't awed with the story. Somehow, I was hoping that it would be similar to other Amish stories I've read in the past (including some from the author). But it wasn't. I was disappointed. It reminded me a little bit of Harlequin books. In this particular story, there is a young Amish lady who is putting too much effort to conquer the heart of a particular Amish guy. Way too much effort for my taste. Not at all what I have come to know from the Amish way of life. She also display jealousy as well as gossip around town against her rival. I was a bit disturbed about this. And in the end, she seems to switch her attention to another Amish guy. My thoughts when this happened was "Here we go again....".

However, I must say that I enjoyed learning from other kind of trades that Amish can have - like a bike shop (which makes sense) as well as a stamping store. I would love to go in an Amish Stamping store and discover how they make scrapbooks and cards. Maybe sitting down with them to make cards as well. I would love that. So next time I go to an Amish area, I might do a search on the internet to see if there is such a store.

I'm quite surprise by my own reaction with this book as I usually LOVE Amish novels. But as I write this I must come to the conclusion that this book is perfect for anyone who like romance novel. I like a bit more of mystery and adventure in my books.

Wanda has written another thought provoking book Oct. 1 2009
By Colleen A. Bartell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A Cousin's Prayer is a thought provoking story of a young Amish girl, Kate who cannot seem to get her life back together after a terrible automobile accident that killed her beloved. I did have a problem with Kate who at first refused to allow anyone to share her pain and wouldn't let anyone help her out of her grief and guilt. But did everything come out happy in the end? You have to read the book yourself to see. Colleen B.

A Cousin's Prayer Nov. 14 2009

Indiana Cousins Book 2

Reviewed by Cindy Loven

It has been a year since Katie Miller's boyfriend was killed in a horrible accident. She returns to her home, for her cousin's wedding after staying in Florida with her grandparents. However she cannot go back to Florida with her grandmother because they are moving to Wisconsin. Katie really doesn't want to be at home.

Since she has gotten home, she has had panic attacks, and they seem to get more frequent, and leave her more in a fog than the last one. Friends and family want to help Katie, but she is afraid to mention the attacks, afraid people will think she is crazy. Instead a gossipy friend jumps to conclusions and spreads rumors out of jealousy.

An old friend from school who just moved back to the area, reaches out to Katie, because he recognizes her panic attacks, having had them himself as a young teen. Without realizing it, they each fall for each other, thinking that neither one is interested in the other. A tale that ends in love, it is very interesting how this author handled and presented this story.

This has perhaps been one of the best stories I have read in the Amish story genre, there is no Englisher falling in love with an Amish person, there is no Amish person deciding their faith, to stay or leave. But is a story from within, a story of an Amish girl with a serious problem, and how the Amish family and friends help her. I truly enjoyed this story. There were things in the story that made me wonder, but after speaking with a friend who has researched in this area a lot, I became aware that the possibility was there. 300 pages 4 star rating.
