Loved this second book in The Amish of Summer Grove series. I would hate to have to trade my life for something completely different than what I was used to. It would be just as hard to go from Amish to English or from English to Amish. Ariana seems to try harder to adjust at first than Skylar does but at least she wasn’t battling a drug addiction. Can either girl fit in and enjoy their new lives for a year? I would have a horrible time trying to adjust because I hate too many changes. I received this book from bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion.
Family, community, faith, and love. These quilt blocks sewn together made Ariana s beautiful life. When they are pulled to pieces, will anything familiar remain? The Old Order Amish life Ariana Brenneman loved vanished virtually overnight with the discovery that she was switched at birth twenty years ago. Now she s immersed in the”Englischer”world, getting to know her mother, and under the authority of her biological father, an atheist intellectual with resolute plans to expand Ariana s worldview. Only Quill Schlabach, a childhood friend living”Englisch,” can help steady Ariana s tilting ground between the two worlds, but can she trust him after so many betrayals? At the same time, Skylar Nash is forced to choose rehab or spend several months with her true relatives, the large Brenneman family and their seemingly backward life no electricity, no technology, no fun. What the young woman can t leave behind is her addiction to illegal prescription drugs and deep emptiness from the belief that she doesn t belong in either family. New ties are binding Ariana and Skylar to the lives they were meant to have. Can they pray for the wisdom and strength they ll need to follow God s threads into unexpected futures? “” “Fraying at the”Edge is the second novel in The Amish of Summer Grove series.”
