I could not put this book down! I have quickly come to know the characters as friends. I feel as if I have gone through the trials and tribulations of Miriam, Rachel, Rhoda, and Rebecca (Tiffany). There were a few times that I wanted to shake Rachel and smack Hiram! I had to keep reminding myself that this was just a book.

A goth girl named Tiffany arrives in the small Amish community and no one's life will ever be the same. Turns out that the 'gothey girl' is the sister of Rachel and Rhoda. The two sisters grew up thinking they were twins when actually Miriam gave birth to triplets. Rebecca (Tiffany) was lost in a flood as a young girl and thought to be dead. Miriam must fight the Bishop (Hiram) in order to keep her business, her independence, and her newly found daughter. ( )

"Summer of Secrets" by Charlotte Hubbard, is your standard Amish book. It fills the pages with cliches and Amish catchphrases till you can't hardly stand it. It also relys on the fallback storyline of "the misplaced Amish kid". If the only thing you knew about Amish people was what you read you would think these people couldn't keep track of a kid to save their lives. It's like a massive Amish Easter egg hunt. And then to top it off, fictionwise, they always want to keep outsiders out of it, so they don't bother to look very hard. Now I don't know many Amish, but the ones I have met, I cannot imagine them any of them going "eh, no biggie, I'll get another one". No, can't see it.

This one starts with Tiffany meeting her biological family of Amish folks. Strangley, nobody is happy about it. What starts out as a side story, is the bishop is making Miriam, the mom, sell her building that her business is in. That story line takes over the book about 1/2 way through the book. Hubbard lets go of some of the Amish lingo and cliches and the book gets a lot better. I think she starts in too soon with the Tiffany storyline, because it starts before the reader can learn to care about any of the characters. We don't even know she is missing when she is found. I didn't especially like this one....trying too hard to be too Amish. I received this book for free from www.librarything.com ( )

I felt like the book was trying to hard to be realistic, which made it seem less realistic in my mind. I guess this just wasn't my type of book. ( )

Willow Ridge is a small Amish town where the Old Ways are practiced. The Sweet Seasons Cafe is ran by the Lantz family. When a long-lost Lantz daughter shows up with black spiky hair and a skull tattoo, life is thrown into turmoil and the community is shocked and immediately reacts.

I am not entirely sure whether or not I enjoyed this book. The story was interesting but the character development was very inconsistent. In the first half of the book Rachel hated her newly found sister and then in the second half of the book her attitude and opinions completely changed. The author did not show the transition or change of feelings very well. In addition, most of the main characters were a bit bland and uninteresting. I don't think I would read another book in the series. ( )
