Sarah's Garden by Kelly Long

Synopsis from Amazon: Deep in the heart of Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains, shy Sarah King is happiest when working in her vibrant Amish kitchen garden, but new family responsibilities lead her into the confusing world of the Englisch.

Sarah finds her life turned around when she encounters the community's new Englisch veterinarian, Grant Williams. His blue-gold eyes and his obvious concern for her people attract her immediately. Sarah seeks solace and direction from the Lord as she creates a quilt pattern which details her struggle between two worlds.

The Lord is guiding Sarah to follow His will, but will she listen?

My Opinion: I have read a great deal of Amish fiction and noticed that they all tend to be the same. Although this one followed the same story line- Amish woman meets and falls in love with an Englischer, I found the plot to be more engrossing and the characters more likeable than most Amish novels. I enjoyed this book but I would only give it three stars because of its predictability and how the romance dragged in the end. Like seriously folks we all know you are in love. Get married already!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
