"The Bridge of Peace" by Cindy Woodsmall

I have just finished reading a very intriguing Amish fiction book called "The Bridge of Peace" I had read the first in the series and enjoyed it so much I wanted to read this as well.
This takes place in the Amish community and involves some of the same characters as the first book as well as new ones.
The focus is on the story of a school teacher, Lena Kauffman, who becomes entangled in the lives of her students and their parents. It deals with modern day subjects such as bullying and alcohol and it's effects.
It deals with the secrecy and privacy issues that Amish people struggle with in marriage.
I like the fact that it explores the characters such as Lena and Grey and goes back into their history .
There is romance, intrigue and mystery, and most of all it gives you insight into the Amish community and how they deal with everyday modern problems that manage to infiltrate into their community.
It holds your attention so that you will read for hours just to see what happens next.
I would highly recommmend this book

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.
