Book Review: Hannah's Choice by Jan Drexler

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

As part of the Revell Reads crew, I received a copy of Hannah's Choice by Jan Drexler:


Synopsis:
When love and family conflict, will she listen to her head . . . or her heart?

Hannah Yoder loves her quiet life on the banks of Conestoga Creek. In 1842, this corner of Lancaster County is settled and peaceful--yet problems lurk beneath the placid façade. Hannah strives to be the one person who can bind the threads of her family together in spite of her father's worries, her mother's depression, and her sister's rebellious ways. But her world threatens to unravel.

When two young men seek her hand in marriage--one offering the home she craves and the other promising the adventure of following God's call west--Hannah must make a choice. Will she stay true to the faith of her family or defy her father and abandon her community?

About the author:
Jan Drexler's ancestors were among the first Amish, Mennonite, and Brethren immigrants to Pennsylvania in the 1700s. Their experiences are the basis for her stories. Jan is the author of several Love Inspired novels and lives in South Dakota with her husband, their four adult children, two active dogs, and a cat.

My thoughts:
You can tell Jan Drexler knows her Amish history.  She weaves a beautiful tale that at times is heartbreaking and at other times heartwarming.  Her characters are absolutely believable and well-rounded as they deal with issues that early Amish would have most certainly dealt with.  She pulls you straight into the story so that you feel as if you are actually sitting right next to Hannah, feeling her anguish and joy.  If you enjoy reading Amish fiction, you are likely to love Hannah's Choice!
