Today I am reviewing Katie’s Choice, the second book in the Clover Ridge series by Amy Lillard.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Katie Rose Fisher loved Samuel Beachy with an intensity that shook their Amish district. No one doubted they would one day marry, until Samuel turned his back on the church and joined the world of the English.
Alone now in Clover Ridge, Katie Rose dedicates her life to God and the school children she teaches each day. Although she secretly longs for more, Katie knows God’s hand is at work, and she is happy.
News correspondent Zane Carson never even knew Oklahoma had an Amish community until he got the chance to live among them and learn about their day-to-day activities. Their simple way of life is intriguing, but not half as much as the young teacher.
Katie Rose is flattered over the attention she receives from Zane, but she has resolved to never marry. Even if she were to entertain the idea, it surely couldn’t be with an outsider like Zane.
Never one prone to the restraints of organized religion, Zane finds a comfort in the rituals and blessings in the day to day righteous living of this small Amish community. He finds himself, God, and love with Katie Rose.
But as Zane draws closer to Katie Rose, Samuel comes back to repent his ways and return to his place at her side. Can Zane convince Katie Rose that he is committed to adapting to her way of life, or will Samuel win her affections back for himself once again?
We first met Katie Rose in Saving Gideon, when she taught Annie how to cook. Besides helping her older brother, by caring for his children and his home, she also teaches at the Amish schoolhouse.
Katie Rose would have been married already, but Samuel Beachy, after making plans to marry, left and became an Englischer. Although she longs for children of her own, she knows her brother needs her.
When an Englischer reporter comes to stay with the Fisher family, will Katie be tempted to leave with him?
Trust me; you don’t want to miss this story. Read the series and follow Katie and Zane’s story.
Amy Lillard writes a wonderful story, showing yet another Englischer who tries to fit into the Amish way of life. I was thrilled to find the second book just as interesting as the first one in the series.
Don’t miss this exciting series, found in the wonderful (fictional) community of Clover Ridge.
