A Joyful Break -Dreams of Plain Daughters -Book One 
Author: Diane Craver Website     

 A  Joyful Break by Diane Craver

After her mother's untimely death, a twenty-year old Amish woman has a difficult decision to make. Make a break from the Plain community and her boyfriend to live in the English world permanently..... or join the Amish church. 

Rachel Hershberger wants to get away from her Amish home in Fields Corner, Ohio. For a year she's been trying to fill her mother's shoes by taking care of her father and siblings. She quit her job at the bakery so she could have more time to clean and cook at home. Before her mother died, Rachel was positive she wanted to marry Samuel Weaver, but now she can't think about wedding plans. She blames her father for her mother's death. If they had installed a phone in their barn or shanty, her mother might have received medical help in time to save her life. Her mother's death has made Rachel question if she should be baptized and join the church. She wonders if non-Amish women live longer and have less stress. Maybe her forty-four year old mother would still be alive had she left the Amish lifestyle like her sister Carrie did. 
When her Aunt Carrie invites her to go to the beach, Rachel decides the time away will help her to decide whether to join the Amish church or to live in the English world. She is conflicted because she loves Samuel and her family. Instead of a relaxing time away, disturbing events happen while Rachel's in Florida. A photographer snaps troublesome pictures of Rachel because of her famous senator uncle,. and a handsome and charming college student falls in love with Rachel.

“Ms. Craver penned this story with such emotion that it was easy for me to feel as if the story was unfolding before me firsthand. I was seeing and feeling everything Rachel was as if I experienced it myself. I love being able to walk away from a story feeling I went through the trials and tribulations as if I was another character in it and this author did that for me with this entertaining Amish story. I highly recommend it!” --Rating: 5 ~~Review by Diana Coyle for Night Owl Romance Review
