Book Review~A Faith of Her Own
About the Book: Jeremiah thought leaving Middlefield was the hardest thing he'd ever do. That was nothing compared to returning home. When Jeremiah left his Amish community to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinarian, he left more than just his faith behind-he walked away from his family and his childhood friend, Anna Mae. Now that he's returned to help out his mentor and work in a Yankee veterinarian practice, Jeremiah must face his past-and the people he betrayed.
Anna Mae had finally put the loss of Jeremiah and the broken vow between them behind her. Even though she supported her best friend's pursuit of his dream, she never let on how his departure left her questioning her own place in the Amish world. With his return, new questions arise, along with feelings she'd never fully acknowledged before.
As their rekindled friendship begins to turn into something more, Jeremiah and Anna Mae must examine their own faith and their relationship with each other and their families. With both of them torn between loyalty to their loved ones and being pulled in different directions, they must decide whether to heed God's call, even if it means being apart forever.
What I Thought: I have read several of Kathleen Fuller's Amish fiction books, and have yet to be disappointed. Once again, the author has done a wonderful job writing a captivating story in her newest release, A Faith of Her Own. In this book, the main characters of Anna Mae and Jeremiah are both likable characters that are very relateable. They are both struggling at the point their lives are at, with big decisions to be made. My heart ached for them both as they seemed to feel they had to choose between family and their dreams. Along with them, there are other characters in the book interacting with them that have their own side stories going on. I especially liked Amos, and would have loved to see all his drawings in the barn! A Faith of Her Own is easy to read, and hard to put down!
