I began reading this today. It gives you the info on certain Amish terms that are in the book, that are different than we would be used to seeing. (example: boppli means baby). It starts out in the barn, she is not supposed to be in. She is expected to drop whatever she is doing to help out her family. Mary Beth goes to the barn to escape all this.
The Amish terms are italicized to help them stand out for the readers, so you can go back to the front and look it up if needed.
This is a pretty good story. It is made for youths, but as an adult I still liked it well enough. I won't give the book away, but it has a nice and easy story line to follow. It has a nice ending, which may make you smile.
I have to say I really enjoyed reading this story, and it took me less than a day to finish reading it.
