Fraying At The Edge
Received from Netgalley.
Ariana has been raised Amish and that was exactly how she planned living out her life until one day she learns her parents aren’t really her parents at all. She was switched at birth with an Englisch baby. There was a fire at the time, lots of panic and confusion, and the babies were accidentally switched. Now it’s twenty years later and the parents of the Englisch baby want the chance to get to know their biological daughter. So, in order to keep the midwife who delivered the babies out of jail, Ariana and the other woman, Skylar switch places for one year. FRAYING AT THE EDGE is the second novel in the Amish of Summer Grove series by Cindy Woodsmall.
Skylar Nash is being forced to choose rehab or spending a year with her biological family. Sky has a problem with prescription drugs on top of believing that she doesn’t belong with either family. Will she be able to survive a world of no electricity, modern technology, or fun? To top it off, she is having a difficult time finding the pills she thinks she needs to survive. Meanwhile, Ariana is trying to stay true to her Amish faith while having every temptation laid down in front of her. Will either one of them be able to come to terms with all that happened and is still happening to them? After a year is up, will they stay with their biological families or return to the family that raised them?
Wow, FRAYING AT THE EDGE is an emotional roller coaster story. It is filled with very many themes including drugs and adultery. I have to admit that Quill is growing on me. He is a former Amish man who tries to help Ariana while she is with her biological family. He has lied to Ariana many times but he feels that he is doing it for her own good. Ariana doesn’t want to reach out to him, but he is the only one who can help her. I’m so excited to continue this series as well as all the rest of Cindy Woodsmall’s books that I haven’t read yet.
