Book Review:The Outcast by Jolina Petersheim

I love Amish and Mennonite Christian fiction. I quickly picked this one to read as it looked like it might be another good one. The main character has a child out of wedlock and refuses to names the Father and is treated shunned like in her Mennonite community. I read almost 50 pages into it. I could not get into it. You had the main character telling the story and then the bishop that died telling the story from heaven. I think what threw me off  was the one bad word in it near the front(what people call a child born out of wedlock). I didn't see the need for that kind of language in a Christian fiction book. I still read on,but I could not get that out of my mind because I don't use that language and I don't want to read that language. Then I kinda figured out who the child's father was. I flipped through the book and I don't like the adultery in it. It says it's like reading "The Scarlet Letter",but I never read it so I can't compare. Even though I didn't read the full book,it  doesn't mean you might not like it. It just wasn't my style of reading.

I received this book free from Tyndale for my honest review.
