REVIEW: A Mother’s Secret by Amy Clipston

Joshua Glick and Carolyn Lapp are the stars of this story.  Carolyn’s out-of-wedlock son, Benjamin, is required to work for Joshua to pay off a debt.  Although it seems like a punishment, it could turn out to be a great opportunity for all three of them.  The story talks about the different church districts that comprise any Amish area.  The focus of this story was interesting and unique to me as it focused on single 30-something Amish persons.  One was a widower, but the others were simply unmarried due to obligations.  It was interesting to read of how the Amish community wanted each one to marry and get started on a family.  Also encouraging was the free will for choosing a mate, though the single adults were pushed hard by their family members.

Thanks to Zondervan for providing me an advance copy for review.
