The Rose trilogy. Good. ( )

Rose and her are Amish Sisters, divided by the only impulsive marriage to an outsider (who longs for the old ways... and the other sister who is devoted to the old but is falling for a rebellion Nick.

I am now always looking for something new and different in Amish fiction, because I've read so many and I found that in Hen's storyline. Rose's was a fit different to in that she had a friend who was taken in by an Amish family, but never really adapted to it. Having a guy friend wasn't so bad when she was young, but it is causing problems now that she's of courting age and has already been baptized. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy. ( )

Pretty predictable ( )

i picked this up on a whim at the library. i thought it was historical fiction by the cover and was a little disappointed to find out it was set in the 80s. interesting to learn a little about amish life. i liked that it was fairly scandal free. hen and brandons deterioration bothered me, although i guess it was supposed to.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764205749, Paperback)

Lancaster County, with its rolling meadows and secret byways, may seem idyllic, but it is not without its thorns. THE ROSE TRILOGY is the stirring saga of two Amish sisters on the fringes of the church, and the unforeseen discoveries that change their lives.

Rose Kauffman, a spirited young woman, has a close friendship with the bishop's foster son. Nick dresses Plain and works hard but stirs up plenty of trouble too. Rose's sister cautions her against becoming too involved, but Rose is being courted by a good, Amish fellow, so dismisses the warnings. Meanwhile, Rose keeps house for an English widower but is startled when he forbids her to ever go upstairs. What is the man hiding?

Rose's older sister, Hen, knows more than she should about falling for the wrong man. Unable to abandon her Amish ways, Hen is soon separated from her very modern husband. Mattie, their young daughter, must visit her father regularly, but Hen demands she wear Amish attire--and speak Pennsylvania Dutch, despite her husband's wishes. Will Hen be able to reestablish her place among the People she abandoned? And will she be able to convince Rose to steer clear of rogue neighbor Nick?
