  • Young Amish Love

    Audiobook Review: This book contains several stories about young people in the Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The first story is about twin sisters who are about to reach their 16th birthdays, which is when the Amish community considers them to be young women of dating and marriage age, not children. Despite the description, this isn't about one young man choosing between the sisters. It is actually more about overcoming naivete When you've lived a very sheltered existence and understanding that blood is thicker than water. This novella actually has several romances, two for one sister and one for the other. The second story is actually about three couples who are a little bit older. Involved in these romances are a brother and sister. In this story, we see young people who are uncomfortable with their present circumstances, whether familial or religious. It almost becomes the story of musical chairs... who will be in and who will be out. I don't doubt that young people in the Amish community question their faith and the tenets of their community, especially before, during, or after their Rumspringa. I felt like the author gave short shrift to the non-Amish couple, nor did she spend enough time on the brother’s decision to not become baptized and leave the community. I had an issue with the narrator. I don't think she pronounced all the Pennsylvania Dutch words correctly. It really annoyed me the way she had the characters say “thank you.” She pronounced it precisely like the animal donkey! From my research, it is pronounced more like “denki” or “danki.” I also think she mispronounced the word for “sister” as well. I received a free copy of the audiobook of this collection, but that did not affect my review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
