book Review: Miriams Heart by Emma Miller
Miriam Yoder always thought she'd marry Charley Byler. Steady, dependable Charley, who grew up on the neighboring farm, and has been sweet on her since they were young. But then local veterinarian John Hartman catches Miriam's eye. He's handsome, charming, cares for animals-and is not Plain. While Miriam is known as the "wild" Yoder sister, she is still expected to marry a good Amish man. But what if it's God's plan to match her with John? Miriam must listen to her heart to truly know which man will claim her love and her future.
This is the second book about Hannah's Daughters. I haven't read the first book but I was still able to follow the book without having read book one. I love Miriam, I love how she is different, she wants to work outside and with animals. It is interesting seeing how Miriam is attracted to John who is not Amish and also Charley who she sees as a friend. Watching the way the family interact was fun too especially their younger sister who has down syndrome. She has a habit of saying what is happening when its not always the best thing to say which can be interesting. The way she is treated was really good to see also. This is a good read and I cant wait to read the next one in the series.
