Review of Annie's Truth
by Beth Shriver
In book one of the Amish romance series, Touch of Grace, Annie must leave the security of her family and community to find her true identity when she discovers she was adopted as a newborn and raised by her Amish parents.
I read the series backwards....lol.....I received a copy of Grace Given previously and read it and reviewed it. I loved both books. I rather enjoyed reading it this way as it answered many questions that I formed as I read book 2. I felt really badly for Annie though. It seemed that her family was very hard on her for wanting to find her birth mother after she discovered that she was found in a field by her Amish faither as a newborn. I would think that it would be natural for Annie to have questions about her birth and to want to find her own answers. I suppose it is the Amish way and that would be one of the things I have trouble over in the Amish faith. Her boyfriend, John, also seemed rather harsh with her as well. I don't want to spoil the book for readers by telling too much, so you will need to read both books and discover these treasures for yourself!
