Somewhere to Belong Daughters of Amana, Book 1. Jarrick P. Загрузка.

Somewhere to Belong is the first in Judy’s Daughters of Amana series and I can’t wait to read the second. Miller’s histor Award-winning historical author Judith Miller tends to write her books in a series of three novels featuring a common family or location. Alas, it’s not scheduled to release until September of 2010. In the meantime, get your hands on this book and be prepared to sit a spell because you will be enthralled. Her newest novel, Somewhere To Belong kicks off her Daughters of Amana series. Initially, I chose this book because of the proximity of the setting.

Somewhere to Belong (Daughters of Amana)by Judith Miller is a well-written novel with well characterized people, and compelling conflict. The seven villages of the Amana colonies in Iowa are not well known by most people. This book opened up a world that I was not familiar with from a region that is not often written about. More than a historical novel, this is also a coming of age story of two very different girls.

Johanna Ilg has lived her entire life in Main Amana, one of the seven villages inhabited by devout Christians who believe in cooperative living, a simple lifestyle, and faithful service to God. Although she's always longed to see the outside world, Johanna believes her future is rooted in the community. But when she learns a troubling secret, the world she thought she knew is shattered and she is forced to make difficult choices about a new life and the man she left behind. Berta Schumacher has lived a privileged life in Chicago, and when her parents decide they want a simpler life in Amana, Iowa, she resists. Under the strictures of the Amana villages, Berta's rebellion reaches new heights. Will her heart ever be content among the plain people of Amana?

Johanna has lived in Amana, a Mennonite commune, all of her life. Life is totally structured and Johanna is content with her life. Berta moves into Amana and Johanna is assigned to help her adjust to life in Amana. The problem is that Berta has lived a pampered, wealthy life in Chicago and rebels against almost every rule in the community. Johanna is finally allowed to realize her dream and allowed to visit her brother and sister-in-law in Chicago. While visiting, Johanna discovers a life changing secret that has been kept from her for her entire life. Does she want to remain in Amana now or live in Chicago? Berta runs away from home after finding out a secret about her father. She, too must make the decision of returning to live with her parents in Amana or go to a finishing school. Both girls must decide if the secrets they discover are enough to drive them from Amana and their families.

The Amana life was interesting to read about....to a point. I felt like the history of how these people lived was the main point of the book. The people were just a side note. I didn't really warm up to Johanna until the end of the story, and Carl seemed like he needed more personality. I couldn't figure out where their relationship stemmed from. It was so dry, dry, dry and dull. The writing was good as far as description s were concerned for the setting and way of life, but meh. I actually set this book down and didn't finish until over a year later.

My Review

I enjoyed this book. I feel like it was well-written. There are several types of writing styles; some authors possess a straight-forward writing style that allows quickly read a book and enjoy its plot and characters, while others are truly wordsmiths who write phrases so beautiful that you have to stop and linger over them as one would a rose on a summer day. (See what I did there?)

Judith Miller writes in a straight-forward manner that tells the story and she tells it well. Her characters come alive by the details she shares. She has the ability make you know the characters and cause them to get under your skin and annoy you or make you sympathize with them. Berta annoyed me but at the same time I pitied her and wanted to offer her guidance. I sympathized with Johanna as she tried to offer guidance to Berta and as she dealt with her own life falling apart.

This book surprised me. I suppose I didn’t read the back cover until after I read the book because I had no idea that Johanna was going to learn a troubling secret and the secret she did learn took me by surprise. I love when a book isn’t predictable!!

This was a wonderful book and it was the first book I read about the Amana colonies. (I believe there are two Amana Colony series.) I was very excited to pick up another Judith Miller book. I have thoroughly enjoyed all that I have read by her.

I highly recommend this book.

I'm a big fan of Christian fiction, especially fact-based Christian fiction, such as that based on Mennonite life or Amish life. With that being said, I was excited to read this book because I didn't know about the Amana people and colonies existed.

The book centers around the lives of two young women: one raised in the Amana colonies and one recent transplant to the Amana colonies aka "the new girl". The books seeks to compare and contrast the personalities and characters as the women are asked to work together as a "training program" for the new girl. Through this process, we learn a lot of the culture, the traditions, and the meaning of the Amana life as it was in the early 20th century. I was truly fascinated by Ms. Miller's depiction of the lifestyle and appreciated.

However, I was disappointed by the lagging storyline. I found it tough to get through the book because the story was slow and boring in a lot of places. I know it is a bit of a oxymoron to be fascinated by the depiction of the lifestyle then to be bored at the same time, but Ms. Miller somehow accomplishes this feat. Perhaps it was the poor development of supporting characters or telling what characters are feeling rather than "showing". Whatever the case, it was difficult to stay with the book to the end. I only kept reading because I was interested in knowing more about the Amana colonies.

I would recommend only if a person wants to know about Amana culture. It was nice knowing the difference between the Amana culture and Amish. It was a kindle freebie, so I didn't mind drudging through the book.
