Summary

Fifteen years ago, Lainey O'Toole made a split-second decision. She couldn't have known that her choice would impact so many. Now in her mid-20s, she is poised to go to culinary school when her car breaks down in Stoney Ridge, the very Amish town in which her long-reaching decision was made, forcing her to face the shadowed past.

Bess Reihl is less than thrilled to be spending the summer at Rose Hill Farm with her large and intimidating grandmother, Bertha. It quickly becomes clear that she is there to work the farm--and work hard. The labor is made slightly more tolerable by the time it affords Bess to spend with the handsome hired hand, Billy Lapp. But he only has eyes for a flirty and curvaceous older girl. Lainey's and Bess's worlds are about to collide and the secrets that come to light will shock them both. The Search is a skillfully woven story that takes listeners through unexpected twists and turns on the long country road toward truth. Fans both old and new will find themselves immersed in this heartwarming--and surprising--tale of young love, forgiveness, and coming to grips with the past.

A very different type of Amish book

I wasn't sure I would like this book and hesitated buying it. Only to find out I was glad I did. This story weaves it's way through the lives of Amish and English. And joining the two cultures together in an unexpected way. I would recommend this book to all true Amish book lovers.

Love never runs smoothly

An unexpected story. Not what you'd necessarily expect. A number of unexpected twists. I found it difficult to put down. Thoroughly recommended.

Fabulous!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Search to be better than the print version?

The twists and turns of this story kept my attention and wasn't as predictable as some. Great story line and a great ending!

Loved it!
