STORY LINE BREAKING AMISH TRADITION:
Author Sandra Becker’s new box set Breaking Amish Tradition has nine heartwarming books; you meet continuing characters in the various stories. I love books with continuing themes and characters. Some of the stories have two to three parts. Immersing her stories in fundamental Amish traditions, romance, and Amish way of life, Becker’s nine books provide enjoyment and entertainment.
Books 1 and 2 finds Miriam facing her baptism without joy. Falling in love with an Englisher John, they find trials and tribulations. In books 3, 4 and 5, you find Sarah, aka Wildflower, born to Joshua and Mary, falling in love with banished Doctor Jacob, during rumspringa. They must face the heart breaking possibility of Sarah losing one of the things she most loves.
Book 6 will introduce you to the Zook family of brothers and sisters. Sarah and Aaron have many questions and hesitations before finding happy ever after. In Book 7, twins Rachel and Abigail Zook must face separation and finding the one they thought they wanted may not be the one God intends to impart to them.
Book 8 introduces Joseph Zook and Rebecca Weidler. Rebecca is the bane of Joseph’s life as a child. However, God and nature turn the tables on Joseph. Zachary Zook’s story revealed in Book 9 is next. With his rumspringa approaching, he has questions. Girls annoy him; he is man of the land with tools in hands and the smell of earth in nostrils. God places Elisabeth in his path. Elizabeth has questions and trials of her own. This is their story.
Grab a cup of hot coca, have a seat in your favorite chair, and become engrossed in romance, tradition, and the Amish way of life. My Christian romance novel review of Breaking Amish Tradition follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
At the outset, let me say how much I enjoyed Breaking Amish Tradition. Filled with sweet clean romance and the details of the Amish lifestyle and tradition, I found myself fused to the pages. Looking into the Amish faith principles was fascinating. As a result, I became invested in the characters. I love continuing characters and story-lines. Author Sandra Becker smoothly and gracefully transitioning from one story to another. As a result, the reader enjoys a continuing story-line.
Furthermore, Becker fully developed her characters and gave us emotion, hesitation, confusion, acceptance, love of the Amish life and God. Each story has all the elements needed to keep the reader turning the pages. Written without the use of explicit or graphic sex, Becker skillfully illustrated the love and emotion each felt. With a good story and skillful writing, sex is not necessary to engross the reader and entertain. Her talent shines. The pacing of each story was in keeping with the length of book and the plotting will keep the reader entertained.
BREAKING AMISH TRADITION RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
In addition, I gave Breaking Amish Tradition 4 well-deserved stars. I look forward to more of Becker’s work. I would not hesitate to buy this book for a friend or myself.
