Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Goulds' The Amish Nanny ~ Reviewed
The Amish Nanny
Paperback, Amish Historical Romance
Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers, July 2011
Back Cover Description:
Amish-raised Ada Rupp is at a crossroads. It's time to make a commitment to the faith and join the church, especially if she wants a future with the handsome Amish widower Will Gundy, but a young Mennonite scholar named Daniel also tugs at her heart. Which path will she choose?
Sequel to 'The Amish Midwife', 'The Amish Nanny' follows the coming of age story of Ada Rupp, Lexi's younger sister from the first book. The story picks up where the last book left off. Both Lexi and Ada have the same mother, but were adopted by different couples; now that they know they are sisters both have a piqued interest in communicating with their birth mother who lives in Switzerland. Ada has the opportunity to go to Switzerland to help solve a 130 year old land dispute in order to save a Anabaptist historical site and simultaneously attempt to meet her aloof birth mother. Add to the mix a love triangle between Ada, an Amish widower, and a young Mennonite historian further complicated by Ada being nanny to the widower's oldest daughter on the trip and you've got quite the tale of forgiveness, intrigue, and romance with a good dose of Anabaptist history. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fictional books about the Amish.
