I loved this book. I could not put it down I loved it so much. Whether it was all true or not, the author seemed to know a lot about Amish life. That made the book very believable for me. I loved this story of first love, and how Rose and Noah were experiencing these feelings for the first time together. And of course the fact that it was forbidden made it more exciting. I also liked that you really get to know Rose and Noah's family (well his parents and sister Sarah at least. He has MULTIPLE siblings). I loved that she showed how important family was to both of them, but their love was more important than any obstacle. Such a great book!
