her over the past few months to herself, but at her wits end tells Jude she cannot live with him any Jude unlike a lot of men steps in to keep his family together This is not just a case of telling the girl to be nice to their new step mom It goes way further then that Already acting out and dating English men the girls over hear Jude tell Leah that he is not their biological father While trying to get their little family straightened out One night they hear a car pull up then leave, then a cry of a baby Someone has left a tiny baby on their porch Leah now has to decide how she can make them

choices towards their stepmom were extremely rude and insensitive even though they made my whole family laugh out loud The twins also do many deceitful actions behind their parents backs and get hooked into the wrong English crowd This book was a very fast read for me because I was propelled to find out if Leah and Jude would ever get them under control Besides the challenges of dealing with the twins, Leah is a little bit domestically challenged Growing up as an only child she always preferred to help her dat with the livestock instead of learn how to cook, sew, or do household chores Now she is thrown into a household with an instant family and has to learn how to do all of these things Throw in an abandoned baby on the doorstep and you have one Amish woman who really feels like a fish out of water Luckily she has a very supportive husband, mother, and Amish community who will help her learn that she has what it takes to be a very good mamm I probably would have given this book a higher rating if Leah had been a stronger character She sheds a lot of tears during the book and there are a few times when I thought she could have had a stronger backbone and stuck up for herself

was certainly sweet However, it was kept from being saccharine by the antics of the twin stepdaughters, who certainly perked things up The stepson was also a welcome diversion I think I liked it because Leah had her own life and interests beyond the business of being a typical Amish wife Although I doubt I will read a lot of this type of book, I did enjoy this one flag Like see review Jun 09,
