Mattie's Pledge - A Book Review
Since Mattie last saw Jacob, they've both grown into different people with different dreams. Jacob yearns to settle down, but Mattie can't help but dream of what may lie over the western horizon. When a handsome Englisher tempts her to leave the Amish behind to search for adventure in the West, will her pledge to Jacob be the anchor that holds her secure.
I was excited to read this Amish story, especially since it was set in the 1840's. I love this time period and thought it would be enjoyable from the Amish prospective. I really had a hard time getting into the story. It was very slow paced, especially at the beginning. I did not connect well with any of the characters and struggle to even like Mattie. Hopefully the next book will pick up speed!
***Thank you to Revell for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my review.
