"Hannah's Choice"

"Hannah's Choice," by Jan Drexler, is book one in her Journey to Pleasant Prairie series.  I found this to be a very intriguing read as I have read many Amish stories, but none quite like this with the time period and setting.  Hannah is a character whom I empathized with right from the start, she is in the role of essentially being the caretaker and unifying of her family. She had such a big and tender heart that she doesn't want to disrupt or disappoint anyone; however this can get in the way of finding her own true happiness and what is best for her own life.  Hannah's relationships with her family members and with the two men whom propose marriage to her are all intertwined with the other characters and their relationships making this is a completely engrossing read that kept me guessing throughout it as far as what was going to happen and has left me still thinking about the characters as if they were real individuals.  I highly recommend this book for those whom enjoy Amish fiction and also historical fiction.
