Readers will enjoy the culmination of Annie’s romance with Rufus. The superior, well-paced, contemporary half of this novel more than makes up for its strange juxtaposition with a far less compelling tale of Amish struggle and conversion set in 1890s Arkansas.

Newly baptized into the Amish faith, Annalise Friesen nevertheless struggles to discern God’s will when she feels called to help a troubled Amish teenager from Pennsylvania who is unable to adjust to a new community in Colorado. Meanwhile, Annie’s sort-of fiancé Rufus must keep his carpentry business afloat if he ever wants to be able to afford to get married. (BARBOUR, Feb., 368 pp., $14.99)
