A Simple Change by Judith Miller

Thursday, August 15, 2013

In A Simple Change by Judith Miller Jancey is shocked to hear her parents have decided to return to the Amana Colonies in Iowa. They were well to do in Kansas City, and Jancey loved teaching the children in the orphanage. 

But with her Mother ill and wanting to return to Amana she had to decide if she would go with them or not.  She had never even been to Amana before but she could not stand to be away from her Mother in what may be the last few months of her life.

But life in Amana may not be just what she thought it would be. After getting her nose into something a little too deep, and making a huge discovery, she must unravel the mystery and find the truth.

Before I found out about this book I did not even know what Amana was! So I really enjoyed getting to see what life was like in Amana back in 1881. I think that Judith Miller did a really nice job with this book.  It was really neat to see how Jancey tried to adjust to her new life and all the new rules there. And I really enjoyed getting to see how Amana was from the point of view of a person just joining them for the first time.

But just because Amana is different than the city does not mean nothing happens! There are twists and turns that Jancey must have never seen coming! I must tell you that it got to the point I did not know how the story would end! I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction!

I received this book free from Bethany House for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
