Book Review: Beside Still Waters

Beside Still Waters: A Big Sky Novel (Big Sky Novels)

About The Author:

Using her own experiences as a teen mother, and leader of today’s generation, Tricia’s vision is to be a voice of hope and possibility for teenage girls, pregnant teen girls, mothers and wives through her educational and inspirational speaking, workshops and books. Her intention is to serve ordinary women by encouraging extraordinary things with God’s help. Tricia expresses real life, real hope, for real women.

About The Book:
Marianna Sommer believes she knows where her life is headed. Nineteen years old and Amish, her plan is to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron Zook, and live in the only community she's ever known.

When Marianna's family moves from Indiana to Montana she discovers life and faith will never be the same. As she builds an easy friendship with local guy, Ben Stone, Ben not only draws her heart, he also gets her thinking about what loving God and living in community is all about.

My Thoughts:
I have read other books by Tricia, and I am amazed and impressed by her diverse writing styles. Each book that I have read is completely different from the last yet each book is wonderfully written and quite enjoyable.  I have always enjoyed Amish stories, and this is did not disappoint me.  I always like to see a new twist, since Amish stories can be a bit predictable, Besides Still Waters had a twist that kept me quite entertained.  This is one family that has suffered, and as they leave town in hopes to heal you wonder if it will only cause their daughter even more pain.  This book is about healing and an unexpected relationship between the Amish and the English and all in all and very enjoyable light read.
