Hannah's Choice by Jan Drexler

     In Hannah's Choice, Hannah Yoder must work to sort out the troubles her family faces and to work to hold everything together.  She is content where she is, but must deal with ideas from outside her Amish community and family issues within.
      She feels responsible for many of these issues and feels like she must be the one to work through what has arisen as a result of the issues.  She has to work at keeping her family together and being a peacemaker.  She finds herself with another dilemma in choosing a mate.  She has to choose between staying in her community and continuing her duties with her family, or choosing to leave and go west.
      I have not really thought what it must have been like to face issues of today during the 1800's without all the outside support that is available today. Hannah had to try to work with her family and keep things together when others in her family were unable or unwilling to help.  I enjoyed this story and felt like I was right there in the story itself.
     I received a copy of the book from the publisher to review.
