The Hidden Life

Emma Stolzfus has never been courted or kissed, and now she’s 30, it has become her place as the unmarried daughter to look after her elderly mother. But in the dark hours when her mother is asleep, Emma writes letters and essays to Amish periodicals, shorts stories, and even a novel she’s been working on for the last five years. When a New York literary agent, Tyler West, takes an interest in her work, Emma secretly goes to meet him. When she returns, something about her is different and the men of her Amish community take notice. But how can she settle for second best when her heart made its choice years ago- to a man she can never have? Only her friends Amelia and Carrie know the truth in her heart as they work together on their quilt. Only they understand when an old tragedy comes to light that will either hurt or heal… and reveal Emma’s hidden life.
 I must say I love reading Amish fiction, and getting the chance to learn more about the Amish, a very interesting group of people. I truly enjoyed reading this book, Adina Senft is a wonderful writer I hope to read more from in the future. I was not made to write a good review, only to voice my honest opinion, I received this book for free for review by faithwords.
