"Fraying the "Edge". #2 The Amish of Summer Grove"

I enjoyed the second part to this trilogy even more than the first book. It took the two girls, who were switched at birth, and put them with their biological families. How they adjusted and their experiences in their new worlds were detailed and emotional. I really felt connected to Arianne and Skylar. The side stories of both sides and their interactions with family members made the stories move fast. The ending with the girls returning to their original families left them confused with their beliefs and feelings. I can't wait to read the third book to see which life they choose. I love how the culture and faith of the Amish is included.

Ties that Bind by Cindy Woodsmall

I really enjoyed this book as much as her others I have read. She has a great way of developing the characters . With the mystery of the switching of the babies and the impact on the entire family, I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened. The ending leads into the next book. The Amish lifestyle, faith, and language are special additions to the story. I can't wait to read the 2nd in the series
