A Modern Day Romeo and Juliet…Amish Style
Addie has always been an obedient daughter. Even to the point of considering a marriage to Phillip Eicher; a man she does not love to please her parents. But when she meets Jonathan Moiser she realizes that she must follow her heart. How could she have known that there was a serious rift between their families?
Wanting to find a way to put an end to the rift between their families, Addie and Jonathan begin digging into a past that many would prefer stay buried. Adoring Addie is a moving story of two young Amish who discover love, forgiveness and truth.
Leslie Gould has successfully used Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet as inspiration for Adoring Addie, which is the second book in The Courtships of Lancaster County series. If you haven’t read the first book in this series, Courting Cate, you’ll be glad that it stands alone well. And if you did read Courting Cate I’m sure you’ll be glad to catch-up with Cate and Pete, I know I was.
