No worries if you are not an Amish fiction fan. This isn't 'that' book. If you like pioneer stories with a good does of grit, you'll like this novel. It's about living a dream -- willing a dream actually and what you do when that dream starts crumbling right before your eyes. Do you let it go or hang on for all you are worth? And at what cost? Not just to you, but to those you love.
Told through multiple viewpoints Wonderful Lonesome is a sombre tale that will haunt you long after you close the book.
I liked Abbie's tenacity, and how both Willem and Rudy were each interested in courting her, but neither had the 'gumption' to come out and say it officially. I adored Ruthanna and my heart broke for her troubles. I enjoyed reading about the other characters as well, and how they all had to come to term with 'Gotte's wille' (God's will) for their settlement and for each individual and family.
All that said, I did not like the ending. Without spoiling anything, it felt very abrupt and out of character for Abbie to make the decision she did
