"When the Heart Cries" by Cindy Woodsmall

I love Amish fiction, especially when the author is a good author!  I read When the Heart Cries "Sisters of the Quilt" series book one by Cindy Woodsmall when it first came out years ago.  You know it is a good book when you pick it up and read it again!  Both times I read it I sobbed!  Cindy is able to take you and put you in the place of the main character as if you are feeling and experiencing what the main character is.  It is a heart breaking story about a young Amish girl, Hannah, who has fallen in love with a Mennonite.  She tries to do the right thing and what everyone expects of her, but sometimes things happen out of our control.  Hannah has to learn some pretty harsh lessons and grow up faster then she wanted to.  Her life is confused by jealousy, gossip, accusations and unfounded blame.  Will she be able to endure what life throws her way?  Will she learn to lean on God, or will she turn away from him?  I will start reading the next book When the Morning Comes tonight.  This is a must read for anyone who likes Christian Fiction whether you are an Amish enthusiast or not, does not matter.  You will love this book  -be sure to have a box of tissues handy!
