I love holidays! Time to actually get stuck into reading! Last night I finished my second book of the year, Made With Love, an Amish novel written by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore. 340-ish pages, easy to read, filled with delicious looking recipes, it follows the story of Lovina Miller, a young Amish woman who is following her dream of opening her own pie shop- a dream that clashes with her Mem's dream for her and her 4 sisters, that they each find a suitable man and be married. The book provokes thought and reflection as it takes you through the story. The simplified life of the Amish does not remove them from the complexities of human emotions and relations, great book, fun and easy read.
Today we are off to see friends and explore the beautiful south west of Western Australia! I'll be sure to pack another book!
