The second in the Abram's Daughters series. I really liked it. Easy to read, but not simple. It keeps your interest.
The role that the church plays in the lives of the Plain people is fascinating. It makes me think about our own lives and our own involvement in our individual faiths. Do we see our religious leaders as controlling, the way outsiders might? Or is it all natural and normal? Definitely interesting. I don't understand the concept of shunning because of unrepentant sin or perceived disloyalty. I think it's a sad way of life and I can't see it serving a good purpose, but it their way.
I felt so sorry for Leah and how her happiness was destroyed by her family's manipulation and betrayal. Her faith is so strong and should be rewarded. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
