I could not finish this book. The writing style that is presented here is not one that is easily to follow. It is hard to keep track between the women for at least half of the book (at the time you figure out a way to remember which is which without flipping to the intro page). The story is not what I was expecting going into it at all. There was too much unsaid for someone not familiar with the Mennonites or their culture to understand. I would recommend this book if you are looking for a challenge. Not an easy read.
