The woman they pick? Lia Shetler, a sweet Amish girl who's too tall for most of the boys in her community. A girl who wants to be a midwife and bring new life into the world. And she bakes a mean pie, too. Ever since her younger sister Rachel nearly died because of her, she's felt unloved, destined to be a spinster. Rachel, on the other hand? Anything she wants, her father makes sure she gets, and everybody else better, too, or else. Needless to say, she's a spoiled brat. Problem is, she's decided she wants Moses. But Lia is already smitten.
Moses has problems of his own. See, he's not looking to marry either of them. His last girlfriend left the Amish way of life but promised to come back. He feels he's the only the holding her to her roots. But Lia is so beautiful and kind......what to do? Remain loyal to the past or move forward into future? And how to keep the manipulative and cunning flirt Rachel from breaking her heart over the first boy who actually rejected her? You can see the quandary he's in.
From start to finish, Huckleberry Hill is an endearing, sweet book full of twists and turns and mouthwatering/indigestion-inducing food. While I'm not sure how accurately it portrays Amish life, you'll be hooked by the characters and the story. I'm really looking forward to the next books in the series.
