A SIMPLE SPRING
Although Sadie King is blessed with the voice of an angel, she never thought that following the song in her heart would take her far beyond the strict boundaries of her Amish faith and away from the only home she’s ever known. But during her rumspringa, one road leads to another, and suddenly she’s secretly performing with a band. Now she faces an impossible choice between the music in her heart and the traditions branded upon her soul.
Mike Trueherz is a dedicated young paramedic who finds a kindred spirit in Sadie. Torn between family duty and his desire to pursue a life beyond his father’s rural medical practice, he is inspired by Sadie’s honesty and courage.
While spring unfurls rich colors and bounty through the countryside of Lancaster County, Sadie and Mike must reconcile their families’ expectations with their own callings. Ultimately, their faith in each other and the God that has brought them together will give them the strength and the peace to take a chance—and to make the biggest decision of their lives.
A coming-of-age story reflecting the deepest messages of love, A Simple Spring is music for the heart.
There's nothing simple about Sadie's spring! Her story took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride the likes of which I won't soon forget. A breath-taking, poignant story about finding yourself and God's purpose for you. It made me sad and happy and sad some more! This book really tugged at my heart-strings.
It is the second in the Seasons of Lancaster County series but it's written so well that you don't need to read the first one to enjoy this one. Though Adam and Remy of A Simple Winter and all the King clan feature prominently in A Simple Spring as well. Maybe that's why I found this such an emotional read -- not only was I struggling right along with Sadie, but with her brother, Adam, as well since I knew how her actions would impact on him. You've got to love an author who can create such memorable characters that a reader can worry over them the way I did!
Of course, I can't wait to read the last book - A Simple Autumn -- which releases in October. But I fear that even then I won't be willing to let the King family go! They've made an impact on me.
