When I started this book I was glued to it like no one ever glued before. I couldn't put this book down and it was amazing how the author got you hook. When I first started this book I thought, "what is going to happen if Neil dies and if Ethan goes back to the amish ways? What is Leah going to do if that happens? When it does happen I...have no clue of what she is going to do. I felt so sorry for her. When you read this novel you get to know her and you feel what she is feeling through the words of the book. So when I found out Ethan went back to his family I felt every bit of her pain.
