Book Review - Somewhere to Belong by Judith Miller


Somewhere to Belong (Daughters of Amana, Book 1)

Next up:

honestly this book sounded super boring so i was expecting to read a bit and get super bored with it and not go on with it at all. 

that, however, is not how it went. it ended up to be a great book which i'm hoping to read the next in teh series sometime eventually. this was about a girl well two girls really. one got moved to this small like amish type town and she had been from chicago. there is a lot of details that i can't tell you cause it would ruin it. but there is a lot that goes on. with a lot of secrets and lies. but somehow it all works out. it was so great. not the lies but the book in general. it was such a fast read which wasn't what i was expecting at all. it was a happy surprise. it exceeded my expectations thats for sure. i dunno what else i could say otherwise i'd give up all the details haha. thats something that would happen quite a lot of the time. anyway i hope you check it out. below is the discription on the back of the book. 

thank you to Bethany House for providing this for review!


"Johanna Ilg has lived her entire life in Main Amana, one of the seven villages inhabited by devout Christians who believe in cooperative living, a simple lifestyle, and faithful service to God. Although she's always longed to see the outside world, Johanna believes her future is rooted in the community. But when she learns a troubling secret, the world she thought she knew is shattered and she is forced to make difficult choices about a new life and the man she left behind. Berta Schumacher has lived a privileged life in Chicago, and when her parents decide they want a simpler life in Amana, Iowa, she resists. Under the strictures of the Amana villages, Berta's rebellion reaches new heights. Will her heart ever be content among the plain people of Amana?"
