TEXT Ü Plain Patterns × Leslie Gould

Ory Savannah does all she can to find the Amish girl and clear Tommy's name But when her former fiance shows up begging her to return to California and marry him after all she must choose between accepting the security of what he has to offer or continuing the complicated legacy of her family's fait She would need the love others to move forward into the future the Lord had for her Piece by piece This was a nice change of pace for an Amish read Not heavy on the romance but of life pains The narration is done in two parts The past of 150 years of the first Amish settlers and the struggle they faced and the current Amish community that was settled The main character's grandmother lives in that Amish community and Savannah has come from her English world of California to find refuge from a broken engagement The story becomes complex has there is to Savannah's pain then a broken relationship As for most of us it reveals past hurts Upon her arrival in the dead of winter of Indiana she is asked from her Amish cousin who is a midwife to attend a birth of Amish mother It turns out this family is in some type of turmoil with one of their other children Savannah and her late mother would bring babies into the world together Helping the Amish family brought back wonderful memories but also pain of time lost Emma's story is parallel to Savannah's story Emma has suffered great loss as well and is leaving Pennsylvania to go to Indiana She also is a midwife and is needed in the Indiana territory She becomes friend with Mathilde an Indian woman that is married to a Frenchman Her story portrays the racism of the Indian people and how they were sent away Their friendship brings out the best of each woman as they fight for what is rightI liked how each story was played and the characters that tied from the past to the present The lessons learned and the lessons that continue to be learned Highly recommend A special thank you to Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review
