A great book set in an Amish community

An Uncommon Grace is written by Serena B. Miller.

This book is more then just another Amish story set in Ohio! You will find this book to have a murder as well as a romance. The murder is what sets the story into action and the romance is what carries it along.

Grace Connor has served in Afghanistan as a nurse but is happy when she is needed at home to help her Grandmother recover from surgery. Adjusting to life outside of war is not as easy as she thought it would be but getting to know neighbor Levi Troyer and his family, is helping her more then she realizes.

Levi’s life changes in one afternoon and starts taking him in a direction he never thought possible. Will he stay with the Swartzentruber Amish he has grown up with or will he follow his heart and learn to follow Christ on his own?

This book is great at explaining the different sect of the Amish. You can tell there was much research done and it does not hold the story back but actually helps you understand the characters better. The writing style was excellent and gave you very in-depth insight into the thoughts of the Amish.

The characters are well developed and the romance advances at a believable pace. I could not put this book down! I enjoyed the story lines, I liked the characters and I loved how the author concluded all the different plots. I gave this book 5/5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who loves to read Christian fiction!

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
