An Honest Love by Kathleen Fuller

An Honest Love
by Kathleen Fuller

An Honest Love is set in Amish country, in Middlefield, Ohio.
There are four main characters: Anna, Lukas, Elisabeth and Aaron.

Anna is a young woman who moves to Middlefield with her her mother. After moving into her unlce's house and starting a shop, she meets a young man named Lukas. Lukas soon falls for Anna but because she was hurt in her past, she has a hard time opening up to him. Also, she is dealing with a medical problem that puts a distance between them.

Elisabeth is Lukas' sister and she works for her brother-in-law as a book keeper for his blacksmith shop. Aaron is a young man who works in the shop. He is a serious and private. Elisabeth works at getting him to open up to her and they form a friendship.

At first I found this book very hard to get into and follow along with. It was hard to follow the two stories. Towards the middle of the book however, things got interesting. The book became more suspenseful and I couldn't wait to see if the couples ended up together and what happened with them.
I was not satisfied with the ending but I have a feeling the author has another book on the way. This book was the second in this series. I had forgotten that I had the first book and I will go read that again to refresh my memory.
I think this a fun, easy read. I always enjoy reading Amish fiction; I find the Amish way of life fascinating.

  1. My dad was raised conservative Mennonite (very close to Amish) so I'm always interested in reading books that take place in the Amish community. Hopefully the third book will be better!
