"Torn between the affections of two men, will a mission trip to the city help her choose?"
  SABC | Jan 21, 2020 |
Emma is on the cusp of marriage, and her younger brother Mark is ready for his rumspringa. Afraid that Mark will run wild, Emma puts her future on hold to with him to Philadelphia, to keep an eye on him. They are staying with others at a rundown church, and helping to feed and minister to the homeless and others in need. Heading this group is Caleb, Emma’s former beau. A truly bad man tries to disrupt and threaten everything. How Emma and Caleb cope and resolve the situation is the crux of the book. Complicating the situation is a neighbor who wishes to marry Emma, but not for love, even as her heart is turning in another direction anyway. The characters are quite interesting, but the plot has a few holes that are never addressed or resolved. ( )

Beth Shriver has written a very unique book with “Rumspringa’s Hope”

Typically when you read a book about the Amish, Rumspringa is part of it but not the focus.

Even with stories where the main conflict hinges on that mysterious time in an Amish teens life, we only get a glimpse of what goes on during that oh so secret period.



And that is exactly why we “Englisch” are so fascinated by it, why we have reality TV shows that imitate it, why we read about it in almost every Amish book on the market… because it is intriguing to us and yes… because it is such a mystery.

And that is only part of the reason this book will be a hit!

Beth Shriver has focused almost entirely on what goes on during the Amish rumspringa… at least as far as her own characters go.

It is like getting a glimpse at a forbidden world and I know I will not be the only one to keep reading out of sheer curiosity!

It’s also exciting to see that this is book 1 of the new series! Readers love series!

Admit it – you know you do!

What fun is it to get attached to characters when you only to get to connect with them in one book? It’s not and that is why most authors of Amish fiction are smart to make their books into series – because they know their readers LOVE THEM!

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I couldn't even finish this book. It was very boring and jumped around a lot. One minute the family is talking to Mark about his wild ways and suddenly Zeb has arrived and is about to ask Emma to marry him. Emma doesn't seem to want him around yet she is holding his hand at the singing. In this book the Amish youth don't spend their rumspringa running around their community but instead they go to the city. It was a strange and out of whack book. I can't even give it one star.

Rumspringa’s Hope is just that, going into the English world, but not joining them, but trying to bring God’s Word and Love to them. I felt that Emma’s brother Jack was out of control, and not living his Amish faith, what to do? Emma finds out her brother is going to go on his rumspringa and going to Philadelphia, PA, and decides she will go and keep an eye on him, and maybe share some faith with people.
While the Amish religion does not per say proselytize, Emma seems to want to do what her friend Caleb has been doing. Before she leaves for the city it appears that she has established an understanding with Zeb, and her parents seem to have blessed a union between them.
Come along with this group of young Amish people, both male and female, and see what happens to them and observe their experiences in the city. There are some really big surprises, and you will wonder if life will ever be the same for any of them. Coming from rather sheltered lives to the harsh reality of every day live in tough areas, had to be a real reality check for them. Can they ever come back to their peaceful existence, or will they be caught up in the modern world forever? There is also the chance they will enter into the world of drugs and danger, and can they get out of there?
I really was engrossed in this story, and was really surprised how some things turned out, that you will never see coming. If you enjoy Amish stories, this one is a great read, and a real page-turner. Enjoy!

I received this book through Booketeria, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
