Book Review: When the Morning Comes

The second book of the Sisters of the Quilt series takes readers out of the Amish community. Hannah has fled and must learn how to live among the Englisch. Thankfully, she finds herself among people who care about her and want to help her succeed. They are patient, most of the time, and sympathetic to her unique needs.

Hannah’s situation gives readers an interesting perspective about the Amish. Away from her familiar community, Hannah must overcome challenges such as proving her identity, gaining an education, and learning to use technology.

The story isn’t entirely about Hannah’s experiences among the Englisch, though. Author Cindy Woodsmall keeps readers up-to-date about developments in Hannah’s home community: what’s happening with her sister, her brother and sister-in-law, her ex-fiance’, her best friend, and her parents. The story goes back and forth between two worlds. To learn if they are separated forever, readers must move on to the third book (which I’ll review in a future post).

If you missed it, you can read my review of the first book by clicking here. No one sent these books for my review. I got these myself at the recommendation of a friend.
