Recently I read The Miting. I don't usually gravitate towards Amish fiction because it almost always turns out to be an uncomfortable read for me, and if I take time to read a book, I like to enjoy it.
The Miting, while it is fiction, could very easily have been a true story. Dee Yoder did an excellent job at creating a gripping, true to life, Amish fiction book. So very different from other Amish fiction out there. I would recommend it to anyone interested in Amish things.
She did such a good job of writing this book, that I had to keep reminding myself that Leah is a fictional character, and praying for her really isn't necessary, though I would then take a moment to pray for all the other Amish out there who are experiencing what Leah was going through.
It spoke to me, like very few books do. It was so real, so raw, and having experienced some of what Leah experienced, I lived through those parts right with her.
Though this book can be emotionally draining at some points, it is ultimately a book of hope and courage and I can not recommend it enough.
