Book Review: Beside Still Waters by Tricia Goyer

About the Book: Marianna Sommer believes she knows where her life is headed. Nineteen years old and Amish, her plan is to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron Zook, and live in the only community she's ever known.

When Marianna's family moves from Indiana to Montana she discovers life and faith will never be the same. As she builds an easy friendship with local guy, Ben Stone, Ben not only draws her heart, he also gets her thinking about what loving God and living in community is all about.

My Review: Beside Still Waters gives and interesting view into the life of an Amish family who has known their share of hardships, but still clings to the God that can sustain them. When the family decides to go to Montana, to escape the memories of a tragic accident, they are amazed to discover that the Englisch are not bad. As friendships bloom, so does the understanding of what it really means to be Amish, and a child of God.

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I would recommend this book to those who enjoy Amish Fiction.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)

  1. Sounds like an interesting book, though I'm not much for Amish fiction. I was surprised that Tricia Goyer decided to go into that genre...
