A Faith of Her Own by Kathleen Fuller is another Middlefield Amish Novel. Anna Mae has just been lost since her friend Jeremiah left the Amish community to become a veterinarian. He had been an apprentice to the local Dr. Smith that most of the area animal owners used for their animals since he graduated 8th grade but when he left the area without so much as saying goodbye to her well she was hurt and hurt bad. Didn't he know that she would be lost without him? Didn't he know that Amos his older but mentally challenged brother depended on him? How could he just up and leave and then he only wrote to Amos and only very short infrequent letters at that. Everyone was shocked when he returned but except for Amos continued to be hurt because he had made known to them that he only came back to help out Doc Smith and only then because he broke his leg. Anna Mae is starting to feel lost in the community that she no longer feels a part of. She was beginning to question her faith and the many rules but she had no one to talk to when Jeremiah left and now that he is back she is still so angry with him and he is so standoffish with her that she still has no place or plan for her future. The only thing that the 2 of them still agree on is that Amos is important to all of them and must be protected at all costs. Anna Mae's brother has a horse training farm and suddenly the newest 5 horses get mysteriously sick with lead poisoning and everyone must pull together to save them. Anna Mae suddenly knows what her life's purpose is and she begins to work toward it.
I loved this newest installment in the Middlefield series of books of various types that Kathleen Fuller has released. She is a great writer and look forward to each book as she writes them and this is a good one. It is a book which any age person could read and enjoy. It is a love story but also an animal lover book. It is a woman coming of age book for any faith to enjoy.
I received this book from Booksneeze for this review.
