When the Heart Cries

When the Heart Cries (Sisters of the Quilt, #1)When the Heart Cries by Cindy Woodsmall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hannah is a 17-year-old Old Order Amish girl who has fallen in love with a Mennonite. Following her heart could mean being shunned by her family and leaving everything she's ever known. But, she becomes victim to a terrible crime, and everything (including her new love) is put in jeopardy.

I've read several novels about Amish people. Their culture is fascinating, even though many author's don't really put it in a very positive light (with their main characters wanting to leave the faith).

I'm interested to read the rest of this series to see where Hannah's decisions take her.
