With much trepidation she finds herself in the farm stand wishing she could just be back in her garden. On her first day she meets her new neighbor, Grant Williams, an "englischer" and a veterinarian.
From the beginning Grant and Sarah are taken with each other. Sarah tries to control her feelings for Grant and struggles daily with her feelings for him. Since, in the Amish culture you cannot marry outside of your community or you risk being shunned, she knows that she is risking everything that is dear to her. But to turn her back on the man she loves, is almost unbearable to her.
This is the premise of this sweet story that was so enjoyable to read I could not put it down. Learning about the Amish community is wonderful especially to me since I've been to the Pennsylvania Dutch community many times.
If you've never been to an Amish community you are truly missing out on a lot. There are miles and miles of farms, shops and fun places to go. You can always find a farm that offers horse and buggy rides in one of the Amish buggy's. What fun that is!
The Amish live in a way that is kind to the earth, kind to each other, and is a life that is truly an amazing one in this world of selfishness and cruelty. And Sarah's Garden is a book that is true to the Amish style and is a beautiful love story.
