WHEN THE HEART CRIES
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
Woodsmall's new series focuses on the Amish and their fascinating way of life. Hannah is likable and intelligent but very headstrong. Her desire to break away from traditional customs mirrors teen dilemmas in any culture. The consequences of rape are handled respectfully but are still disturbing. An unrealistic communication breakdown between major characters feels tedious, even with the Amish's lack of modern conveniences. Frustratingly, much of the plot is left unresolved.
Seventeen-year-old Hannah Lapp, raised in an Amish family, has been secretly courted by Mennonite
On her way home, Hannah is raped. Some surround her with love, but not everyone extends compassion. Secrets
