    A Simple Singing by Lelie Gould

    “A SIMPLE SINGING” BY Leslie Gould is the second book in The Sisters of Lancaster County series. A SIMPLE SINGING” is the story of an Amish woman coming to terms with herself and her faith. It’s a story of choices and listening to your heart. “A SIMPLE SIGNING” is the story of Marie Bachmann who has always lived by the Amish rule to the letter and being the “good” daughter. She’s always dreamed of marrying an Amish man well respected in the community with a farm close to her family farm and her Mamm and maybe just maybe one that would share her love of singing. Gordon Martin works on her folk’s farm. He’s dependable, hard-working, has a love of his fellow man. Although a good friend, he’s Mennonite not Amish. On the other hand, her Mamm and Bishop Jacobs would love to see her married to the Bishop’s son, Elijah. In hopes that Marie’s influence would settle Elijah’s worldly ways and bring him back to join the church, settle down and take over farming his Daed’s farm, Marie is sent off with her Aenti Suz to Pinecraft, Florida where Elijah just happens to be working. Excited to spend time with Elijah, who she feels is her future spouse, and fearful to leave the farm, leave Marie with a mix of emotions. She finds out that Gordon too will be traveling to Pinecraft during her time there for some mission work. It’s during their journey to Pinecraft that Aenti Suz starts to share the story of one of their Civil War ancestors, Anne Buchmann. It’s through this story that Marie begins to realize that there is more to being faithful than the length of a hemline or following the Amish rule to the letter. She also realizes that servitude and selflessness are also a big part of it. She does a lot of looking at herself and seeing how she has fallen short. It’s while spending time with both Elijah and Gorton that she see the heart of both men. Has all the time she has been francizing about dream life with Elijah been just that a fantasy? What would become of her dream life if it was with a faithful but Mennonite man? I highly recommend “A SIMPLE SINGING”. It can definitely be read as a standalone book. However, if like me, once you see who well it’s written and the wonderful story it tells, you will be definitely be looking not only for the other book in this series and anticipating the next book in the series, but also checking out this author’s other books.

    Great dual timeline story

    This was a dual timeline novel with connections on both ends. (Marie 2013 and Annie 1863) They both lived in the same town and the same house but were separated by 150 years. Annie was Marie's great great great aunt and Marie learned a lot not only about Annie but about herself from hearing Annie's story from her Aunt Suz. I didn't warm up to Marie at the beginning. She was self righteous and always pointing out others sins without examining her own life. She was strict Amish through and through. She had her life planned out which included Elijah, an Amish man that hadn't settled down and joined the church. Her vision was to marry him, be a good wife while he farmed his parent's land. She just hadn't consulted God, one of her downfalls. Annie was living through the Civil War and although Amish, she was called on to leave her home and family and help nurse wounded soldiers. A big step for her and very hard at the beginning. Interestingly they both had expected matches for marriage, and also close male friends from other religions. I loved reading about their thoughts and observing how slowly God was working on their hearts. I enjoyed reading the history included. President Abraham Lincoln giving his Gettysburg address, the skirmishes between the North and South, and bits and pieces about the Underground Railroad. The family ties, the romances and the telling of everyday life all added to the beauty of the story. It will remain with me for a long time. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher but was not required to write a review. All opinions are my own.

    God calls us to do what is needed-not what is easy

    A Simple Singing by Leslie Gould is the second offering in The Sisters of Lancaster series and it just might be even better than the first one that I really liked too. It is another wonderfully inspirational book by one of my favorite authors of Amish stories. This particular series follows three Bachmann sisters and A Simple Singing is about Marie. Marie is the 'good' sister, a rule follower--even to the extent of measuring hems and bonnet lengths, the sister with a tad of a judgmental spirit and yet one who truly desires to follow God and to understand Him, a young woman who has music in her soul and just wants her dream of a perfect future as an Amish farmwife to come true. Following her journey to love is a treat as the author has added plenty of tension to the story with Marie being presented with two young men who are involved in her life. I love the characters in Gould's stories. She portrays them realistically and the reader is easily drawn into their lives. Another treat with this book is a second story embedded into Marie's and it takes the readers back to the Civil War where readers meet Marie's great-great-great aunt. Annie's story is just as compelling as Marie's and the author does a marvelous job of stopping at just the right point in one story to pick up in the other. Gould gives interesting historical background on the Civil War time period, with a glimpse of the horrors of war and slavery and nursing during that time. Being an RN and grandmother to a young Civil War drummer boy reenactor, I really enjoyed reading Annie's story. Strong themes of family and faith are woven throughout the book as the author portrays vibrant and realistic characters who deal with the nonresistant lifestyle of the Amish, learning what it means to care for those who are suffering and understanding the true meaning of grace, God's grace and love exhibited through individuals serving others. The author has expertly written a captivating story that will remind readers that God is in the hard times of our lives, molding us, making us stronger and we can trust Him to give us the desires of our hearts as we learn to delight in Him alone. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. I was not required to write a review and the opinions are my own.
