In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for and a new, very different future…

Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm, the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to share…

My Review

Two Suitors for Anna was a light, enjoyable read. I liked the characters and the closeness of the three sisters. I enjoyed getting to know Daniel and Noah and seeing the romance progress throughout the book. I felt that there were some areas that the author focused on with much detail that didn’t move the book along, and there were other areas that I would’ve liked more detail. I also wasn’t certain about the historical accuracy. While this book takes place in the early 1900’s, it felt more like modern day Amish to me. However, despite those things, the book can hold your attention and take you away to their world, which is important in a book. I would give this book 3.5 stars.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

What prompted Two Suitors for Anna?
 
Have you had to choose between two men you love? Or maybe a friend?  I gave Anna this dilemma and added to her turmoil by throwing in a bundle of twists and turns to the story.
 
Noah proposes to Anna, and he takes her rejection as hesitation and leaves town. Daniel moves to Berlin and offers her friendship which is blossoming into something more, when Noah returns and asks her forgiveness and another chance. I hope you enjoy it!
