“A Simple Spring” explores the opposite problem that we saw in “A Simple Winter” – how does an Amish girl deal with baptism when she’s not sure she can give up the intense love for music that is in her heart…
Wonderfully well-written and full of delightful characters, It’s a story that no one should miss.
And there’s something so comforting about a story that incorporates the Amish and the English so well into the plot. Typically when you see this sort of story, the English are not portrayed so well…or so accurately. But Rosalind Lauer handles it beautifully and realistically – in both books so far.
A brief synopsis from GoodReads:
A CHANCE TO FOLLOW HER HEART,
A CHOICE THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME
Although Sadie King is blessed with the voice of an angel, she never thought that following the song in her heart would take her far beyond the strict boundaries of her Amish faith and away from the only home she’s ever known. But during her rumspringa, one road leads to another, and suddenly she’s secretly performing with a band. Now she faces an impossible choice between the music in her heart and the traditions branded upon her soul.
Mike Trueherz is a dedicated young paramedic who finds a kindred spirit in Sadie. Torn between family duty and his desire to pursue a life beyond his father’s rural medical practice, he is inspired by Sadie’s honesty and courage.
While spring unfurls rich colors and bounty through the countryside of Lancaster County, Sadie and Mike must reconcile their families’ expectations with their own callings. Ultimately, their faith in each other and the God that has brought them together will give them the strength and the peace to take a chance—and to make the biggest decision of their lives.
A coming-of-age story reflecting the deepest messages of love, A Simple Spring is music for the heart.
