The publisher kindly sent me a copy of this book.
I really wish I'd had the chance to read the first two books in this series but I had no problem jumping in with this book. This is the first time I've read an Amish book set in the past and I liked that it stands out because it doesn't just focus on the Amish but also the Indians.
This book is about Christian and Joseph who were kidnapped and held captive by Indians from a young age. They were adopted by Indian families but now they have come home where they have been reunited with each other and the father they hadn't seen in years.
I have to admit that Christian annoyed me. Dude I get it you love the family you grew up with. That's totally fine but he isn't the least bit interested in getting reacquainted with his father. It wasn't his father's fault that they were separated for years. It's like he's not even thinking about the fact that the people who loves and wants to be with so badly are also the ones that caused him to be separated from his family not to mention some of his family were murdered by Indians but he's just so very one sided. It is cool that this a fictionalized version of true events. I did like this author's writing style so I'll check out more books by him.
I've always loved reading books so it was inevitable that I'd end up writing about books again. Over the years with the many blogs I have had I would end up talking about books. Thanks to a bit of frustration and a case of the writing blahs I decided to dive in again.
