Leslie Gould has done it again! Adoring Addie is the second book in the "The Courtships of Lancaster County" series and is based on Romeo and Juliet this time. I love how she takes the Romeo and Juliet plot and adds her own spin to it. Especially since it's through the Amish world! You should definitely try this series out. :-)
Addie Cramer is the only girl in her family of seven boys. She has never been given as much freedom as her older brothers even for her rumschspringe. Her parents have picked her husband out and won't listen to her opinions on the matter. She was resigned until she met Jonathan Mosier, Martin and Mervin's cousin. The Cramers and Mosiers won't have anything to do with each other because of something that happened years ago.
Jonathan Mosier is a gifted carpenter and a sensitive, caring man. He is unlike anyone Addie has ever known. They get along instantly, and Jonathan is determined to end the feud so they can be together. But what Jonathan is so confident will succeed only makes things worse.
How will Addie survive without Jonathan? Will her parents make her marry Phillip? This story is full of conflict, and Leslie Gould does a good job of bringing it all to a satisfying conclusion.
I can't wait for the next book!!!
I was given this book free from NetGalley (courtesy of Bethany House) as long as I review it.
