Gathering Threads ~ Amish Book Review

This is a story of switched at birth. Ariana Brenneman and Skyler Nash end up in the wrong homes...one being English and one being Amish. This story takes many twists and turns as the two girls are forced to spend a summer with their biological families. As you may imagine, this would be quite a shock for both girls and their families.

Skyler who should have been raised by her Amish parents has lived in the English world with all she could hope for~ only she had found herself in drugs, angry and bitter. So when she was sent to the Amish Brenneman home she made lots of trouble.

Ariana, on the other hand, had always been an obedient daughter and obeyed all the Amish rules. Not until she spent time with her biological family did she begin the question the legalism of her Amish community.

This book grabs your attention from the get-go. Both girls struggle with finding their own walk with God. Will they learn to forgive and learn to love ? This is one you want to add to your reading list.

I loved this book and it was provided to me in exchange for my honest review.
