Book Review: Somewhere to Belong

Somewhere To Belong, by Judith Miller is a Daughters of Amana book.  How much do you know about the Amana Colonies in Iowa?  I've always know of them, but not about them.  This is a very well written book about two young girls from entirely different ways of life.  Johanna has always lived in the Amana Colonies, used to the simple way of life she longs to visit her brother in Chicago.  Berta has lived in Chicago until her father unexpectedly moves the family to the Colonies.  Secrets and spunk abound as you learn more about these two girls, once Berta arrives the Main Amana colony may never be the same! Will the secret that Berta's family hold tear them apart forever?  Will the secret that Johanna's family hold tear Johanna from them?  Find out as you read this book about friendship, love and faith.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, historical fiction full of romance and spunk as well as a little bit of mystery thrown in to add a twist or two!  I will definitely read more of Judith's books in the future and she has left me with a desire to make a trip to Iowa to visit the Amana Colonies!
