I picked this book up in a grocery store check-out, and I couldn't put it down. I grew up near Amish, so a lot of the things in the book were familiar to me. WARNING: these books are addictive. This is the first of a 3 part series, so you have to keep buying to find out how the story ends. Then, you move on to the next series...

I really like the Lancaster County series. It's such a unique story since it has the Amish setting. I read this book several years ago with the intent to finish the series but didn't get around to it. I just recently read the second book, and now I am anxious to get my hands on the third! It is a charming story and definitely worth anyone's time, especialyl if they are looking for a different story.

This book was so good that I couldn't put it down! Beverly Lewis has an amazing writing style and I definately endorse this book! The story is about a young girl coming of age in a small Amish community! It details her struggles to find where in the world she truly belongs. It also highlights her choice between the plain Amish lifestyle that she is accustomed to and the rich elegant lifestyle that she so longs for!

Hi Everyone,
I read this book, and I thouroughly enjoyed it! It was soooo good! I felt like I was in another worled when I was reading this story, as if, I was Katie! If I did not feel like Katie; I felt like I was watching her life and how she felt. It was a wonderful read, and I really recommend it! I also enjoyed reading about the Amish Community!

I WOULD RECOMMEND IT !!!. I found it very interesting. The author really brought the characters to life. I enjoyed it so much, I went out and purchased, The Confession and The Reckoning. Which I also enjoyed. I also loved it , becuase it gives you a little insight of the Amish community.

I highly recommend the book to everyone who has a desire to understand the mentality of religions that have complete Control over its adherents, sometimes people call these cults. But the control of the followers is the sole desire of is male leaders. Submission to things they the followers find bring great unhappiness, hardship and pain.
I used to be one of Jehovah's Witnesses, and disfellowshipping is a form of shunning used by them also within the confines of their world wide assocation. The book by Beverly Lewis hits very well on the life within a high control religious group just like Jehovah's Witnesses. The lack of freedom of women, and the domination of men over women within this religious community. The suffering of young people who have a desire for a more normal life. And the near impossible survival of a young person wanting to leave and having no outside help to shelter them when they are shunned for the smallest offence of the Church's dictates. A church dominated by men who thrive on control of the religious order. These secretive religious groups isolate their followers from the general public. Seeing the outside world as evil controled. The Amish call them the English, the Jehovah's Witnesses refer to them as unbeliever's or worldly people.
It is an excellent book. Must reading for anyone who wants to understand what life is like in a "High Control Religious" group, the hardships, the difficulty getting free of it.
