Shannon McNamara has exciting plans for the summer - getting her driver's license, a job, and more - and she can't wait to dive in. But her ill mother has plans of her own: to relocate them both to the heart of Amish country in Ohio where she has relatives who can help her.
Turns out a "simple" life is actually a lot of hard work. But when a hot young Amish guy named Ezra enters the picture, Shannon's ready to get an Amish makeover and even consider making it a permanent change. Will these plans come crashing down around her too? Or can she really make the jump into a whole new way of life?

A quick and entertaining read! Perfect read for a teen, and an adult will enjoy it as well. Shannon is quite the girl, not too many teens would be as willing and as kind hearted as she is. She helps her mom without complaint, gives up her summer plans and learns about a family she never knew she had...all without complaint.
I enjoyed Shannon and her struggles, she had a lot of grace and strength. This was the first Amish book that I've read with this type of a story line and it was really quite refreshing.
