Book Review: Sarah's Garden

It seems there are so many Amish novels on the Christian market. And most are clichéd, but SARAH’S GARDEN love story line intrigued me, though it still wasn’t my favorite of all Amish books.

The love story kept me interested in the story. An Amish woman falling in love with an “English” veterinarian and being ripped apart because of the strict religious restrictions of this group of people. The connection and angst for the two main characters was well portrayed and I wanted to see what would happen to them.

But I didn’t enjoy this novel as much as other books, because I did not believe that I entered the world of the characters. I wish I could have truly lived with the characters. I must admit I skimmed, but still got the body of the story. For me I want to be so entrenched in the book, I can’t put it down and this book was too easy to set aside.

But overall, if you enjoy a sweet Amish romance this book would probably be one you would enjoy. This is simply my honest opinion of the book.

Thanks to the publisher for my copy to review.


  1. I didn't get as in to this one either. The ending was a different twist, but I'm not sure I totally liked it. I loved learning about heirloom gardening though. I just reviewed it yesterday and have a giveaway.

  3. Hello, Julia!
    Yes, I must agree, I couldn't get into this one very well. Disappointing really, but I am sure someone else along the road will like it. :)
