"Stina Nielsen's skill in depicting Amish characters is enhanced by her ability to deliver a Pennsylvania Dutch accent. Lewis provides plenty of information about the Amish way of life as she continues her story of Annie Zook, the heroine of two previous books. Annie's dream to become an artist is abandoned because her culture does not allow her to pursue her passion. Her life is further complicated when she falls in love with an "Englisher." Nielsen builds the suspense as the listener wonders how Annie will ever find happiness and delivers an outstanding performance as Annie attempts to come to terms with her own identity. N.L.
