Can Anna Mae heed God's call on her life, even if it means leaving behind everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves?

Ever since Anna Mae's childhood friend Jeremiah left their Amish community, she's questioned her own place in the Amish world. The Amish life feels as if it's closing in on her, and with her mother trying to set her up with potential suitors, Anna Mae feels trapped in a life she's not sure she wants anymore. But she's never told anyone that she longs for a tiny taste of freedom--freedom that could be very costly.

When Jeremiah suddenly reappears in Middlefield to help his mentor, Yankee veterinarian Dr. Miller, new questions surface for Anna Mae, along with feelings she'd never fully acknowledged before.

As Anna Mae and Jeremiah rekindle their friendship, old feelings take on new meaning. Yet the question still lingers: What is God's plan for her life? Should she stay, keeping loyal to her Amish family, or does God have a bigger plan--one that provides more freedom than she could imagine? The answers do not come easily, and the answer to God's call may lie in different directions . . . for both of them.

As much as I love inspirational novels, I feel that I have not done enough with spotlighting them as well.  From time to time I get emails from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan (the banner is from their newsletter) and this novel caught my attention so I just had to share.  I’m thinking this will have to be my next inspirational read.  Enjoy…{Deitre}


 

Jeremiah stepped out of Amos’ hug. His gaze finally drifted to Anna Mae. “I didn’t expect to see you here.”

“Ya,” was all she could squeak out. How much he’d changed since she’d last seen him. He wore Yankee clothes now, slim denim jeans that hung low on his hips and a tucked-in, blue-and-white plaid shirt. His wavy brown hair was cut short, and he had a small mustache and beard just around his chin. A goatee, she thought it was called. He didn’t look anything like the gangly sixteen-year-old Amisch boy she remembered. He didn’t look Amisch at all. Then again, why would he? He’d left this life, and everyone else, behind long ago.

Amos moved to stand between her and Jeremiah, his eyes sparkling with excitement. “You can stay for supper, right, Anna Mae? Then we’ll play checkers, like we used to. I’m on Anna Mae’s team. She’s a better checkers player than you, Jeremiah.”

His innocent grin nearly brought tears to her eyes. He wasn’t angry that Jeremiah had left, or even curious why he had returned. Amos lived in the present; the past and future didn’t cross his mind.

She wished she could look at things with such simple purity. That she could look at Jeremiah and not feel the hurt she’d thought she’d come to terms with until this moment. But now that he was here, saying almost nothing and barely looking at her, the angry feelings came bubbling to the surface again. Had he forgotten how close they used to be?
