The Not So Simple Life

 This story is an Amish Romeo & Juliet.  Annie is from the Old Order Mennonites and Aden from the Old Order Amish, their love so forbidden that they might as well come from the Montague’s and Capulet’s. 

I won’t go into the differences of Orders as it is explained in the book, however, friendliness and helping each other as neighbors is encouraged.  A relationship beyond that would prove disastrous for the families involved.  Annie and Aden have had crushes on each other since childhood, now that they are adults, their feeling for one another proves to be much deeper.  They have to decide whether to follow their hearts or listen to the advice of their families. 

Most of us know by now, if we have read even just a few of the Amish fiction titles out there, that just because their life seems “simple”, it really isn’t much different than our own.  We just have more stuff that gets in the way.  This is a nice story, I was pretty sure how it was going to turn out, but that did not make the experience any less enjoyable.
