Anna’s Crossing Book Review + Giveaway
I was sent a copy of Anna’s Crossing and compensated for my review, but all opinions are my own.
I love shopping at Family Christian, online and in store! When the sent me Anna’s Crossing for review I was more than happy to oblige and as a fan of Amish fiction already it was right up my alley! I was also happy to have a new author to add to my list. Not only do I get to share with you this fabulous book but Family Christian is letting me give a $25 Certificate to one lucky winner!!! See below for details about this Anna’s Crossing review + giveaway.
When Anna König first meets Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter of the Charming Nancy, their encounter is anything but pleasant. Anna is on the ship only to ensure the safe arrival of her loved ones to the New World.
As delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions afflict crew and passengers alike, Bairn finds himself drawn to Anna’s serene nature. For her part, Anna can’t seem to stay below deck and far away from the aloof ship’s carpenter, despite warnings.
When an act of sacrifice leaves Anna in a perilous situation, Bairn discovers he may not have left his faith as firmly in the past as he thought. But has the revelation come too late?
Usually Amish fiction is set in an already established community whereas Anna’s Crossing tells the story of Anna and others who cross the Atlantic to begin Amish life in America. I love the new take on the Amish story and found the trip on the Charming Nancy to be fascinating and full of action, adventure, and redemption. There is plenty of drama and nail biting danger that threaten to shake the Faith of those on board and I found myself holding my breath time after time as each situation played out. The characters truly grab and make you care for their outcome in their story throughout .So if you enjoy historical, and/or Amish fiction this book is a fantastic read and contains all the things I enjoy -historical fiction, Amish history, and God honoring values.
