Accidentally Amish


Accidentally Amish 
by Olivia Newport

I really liked how the author mixed present day and past as Annie discovered herself while tucked away in this little Amish community. It's rare for me to find an Amish novel that hasn't been "done" before, but I have to say that Accidentally Amish falls into that category. Watching Annie simultaneously try to save her English life and let it go made for a very soul-searching interesting read. And the romance wasn't half bad either!

"Escape the helter-skelter of the modern culture and join software creator Annie Friesen, hiding at the home of an Amishman. With her high-tech career in jeopardy, Annie runs from fast-paced Colorado Springs—and straight into the hospitality of San Luis Valley’s Amish community. There she meets cabinetmaker Rufus Beiler, and the more time she spends with him, the more attracted she becomes. When Annie finds she shares a common ancestor with Rufus, she feels both cultures colliding within her. But is her love for Rufus strong enough for her to give up the only life she’s ever known?"

I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review - thank you!
