The Bargain


More about The Bargain
When their parents flee the Amish, nineteen-year-old Betsie and her seventeen-year-old sister, Sadie, are distraught. Under the dubious guidance of a doting aunt, the girls struggle to keep the secret, praying their parents will return before anyone learns the truth---a truth that may end all hopes of Betsie's marriage to Charley Yoder.

Worse still, Betsie must learn a trade while she boards with a dysfunctional Englisher family: Sheila, a twelve-year-old desperately searching for a friend and in dire need of her mother; the free-spirited mother, who runs off to "find herself" on the stage; the angry father whose structured life crumbles; and Michael, a troubled college dropout nearly killed in the Kent State Massacre.

Thrust into the English world, Betsie must grapple with the realities of war and miniskirts, pot parties and police brutality, protests and desertion. Can she help the Sullivan family and find peace in her new surroundings, or must she forget the bargain she made and seek refuge back in Plain City with protective and reliable Charley?

About the Author 
Stephanie Reed lives on the outskirts of Plain City, Ohio, site of a once-thriving Amish community. She gleans ideas for her novels from signs glimpsed along the byways of Ohio, as she did for her previous books, Across the Wide River and The Light Across the River

My review;
This is a story about 2 sisters, Betsie and Sadie Troyer who without warning are taken away from the life they knew and forced to live in the English world. They are not prepared for how different the outside world is. Betsie wants to return to the man she left behind, Charley.She is very afraid that when he finds out what she is doing he will not want to marry her. She struggles everyday hoping that he secret will not come out. While she is living in the English world she tries to help the family she is staying with hoping every day that her parents will come to their senses and come and bring Sadie and herself back to the Amish world. What happens to her makes her stronger so that she can make a decision for her own future. Stephanie Reed has written a novel that shows us that we all can make decisions with the help of our faith and  courage to follow our own heart. I give this book a 5/5.  I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group and all  opinions are my own.
