The Bargain by Stephanie Reed

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Bargain by Stephanie Reed
Trade Paperback
ISBN: 9780825442155
Book One in Plain City Peace Series

Synopsis: It's 1971, and Betsie Troyer's peaceful and predictable life is about to become anything but.
When their parents flee the Amish, nineteen-year-old Betsie and her seventeen-year-old sister Sadie are distraught. Under the dubious guidance of a doting aunt, the girls struggle to keep the secret, praying their parents will return before anyone learns the truth-a truth that may end all hopes of Betsie's marriage to Charley Yoder.

My review: This book was different than most Amish books that I have read. It was set in 1971 which made for an interesting back drop for the story. The blending of both the Amish and English culture was interesting to read about. I enjoyed reading about Betsie and the trials that she had to go through after her parents life the Amish community. If you are looking for a new author, an Amish book that is not your typical Amish book then this is the one for you. I look forward to the next book in the series.
