I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

AMISH TRUTH AND GRACE by Marisa Meyer

Amish Truth and Grace - Marisa Meyer

Two short stories set in Amish communities.  The first has Martha's family moving to a new community in Montana that are not as strict as the sect she came from.  Martha holds on her the Old Order ways but has her eyes opened by Jacob who works with homeless people from the surrounding area.  Good characters but the story needed to be proofread.  I was pulled out of the story too often to try to figure out what the author was saying.

 

The second story had Katie returning home from her Rumspringa early to care for her injured sister, Mary.  Katie is reunited with her love, Willis, who has also returned from his Rumspringa.  Katie was happy to return because of the danger in the English world.  Willis' Rumspringa did not give him what he expected.  As they court, Mary keeps getting in the way.  I liked the story and the characters but Mary exasperated me with her attitude and demands.
