I recently read Anna’s Crossing: An Amish Beginnings Novel, by Suzanne Woods Fisher, and I could not put it down! Although Anna Konig did not want to leave her home, her Amish neighbors were counting on her to be their translator as they traveled to America on the Charming Nancy. She soon finds herself repeatedly running into Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter. They seem to be drawn to one another, and I really enjoyed watching their romance play out throughout the pages of this book. Although they meet for the first time on the ship, there is a connection in their past that comes to their attention after they spend more time together.
I normally read a lot of Amish fiction books, and I liked that this book was set in a different time than most other Amish books. I liked reading about the experiences many people went through as they travelled to America. Although they faced many difficulties, this book focused on the faith of the Amish. They were able to remain true to their beliefs during some of the most trying times of their lives. I cannot wait to read more books by Suzanne Woods Fisher in the future. Her stories always keep me entertained from the first page to the last!
