A SIMPLE CHANGE
She never imagined a simple change could be so complicated...
Middle Amana, Iowa, 1881
When her parents decide to sell their home and move to the Amana Colonies, Jancey Rhoder must make a difficult decision. Should she give up her beloved teaching job and her carefree life in Kansas City to go with them?
Her suitor, Nathan Woodward, doesn't want her to go, but Jancey feels she must give this new life a try. Her mother is sick, and these next few months may be the last Jancey gets to spend with her. But will this move spell the end of her relationship with Nathan? And when life in Amana is far more mysterious and challenging than Jancey expected, will she choose to return to the city, or will she make this unique place her forever home?
I always know I'm in for a treat when I open up a Judith Miller book. I know I am going to get a read that is steeped in history with engaging characters and surprising plot twists that leave me gasping "Wh-a-a-a-a-t?!" And that's exactly what happened in A Simple Change. There I was reading along, enjoying the story, kind of plotting out what was going to happen next (I am such a back-seat reader!) and then wham, the story takes a sharp turn and dive into the unexpected. So then I had to stay up past midnight (and I am not a night owl) to delve into this new development. Talk about hooking your readers and reeling them in!
