Review: A Simple Winter: A Seasons of Lancaster Novel
A Simple Winter: A Seasons of Lancaster Novel by Rosalind Lauer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
'A Simple Winter' by Rosalind Lauer is a sweet tale of a young woman who gets involved with an Amish community that is turned upside down when a mother and father of eleven children are murdered. Remy suffers from seizures and as a result is forced to drop out of college and move back home. On the way, she meets a young Amish man on the train and from there, their lives would never be the same. After joining her father's newspaper, Remy decides to write a story on the death of Adam's parents. What she doesn't know is just how hard this task would be.
This is a book that is kindhearted and makes you smile, even through the difficult moments in the story. The Amish community is something that very few people get to experience and this story brings you right into it. And like the community itself, the plot is steady and hardworking without a need for fast action or unforeseen surprises. It is a great read fora quiet evening at home.
