Book Review:The Bargain by Stephanie Reed

About the book: Book one in the Plain City Peace series.
It's 1971, and Betsie Troyer's peaceful and predictable life is about to become anything but. When their parents flee the Amish, nineteen-year-old Betsie and her seventeen-year-old sister Sadie are distraught. Under the dubious guidance of a doting aunt, the girls struggle to keep the secret, praying their parents will return before anyone learns the truth-a truth that may end all hopes of Betsie's marriage to Charley Yoder.

My Review: I really enjoyed this book! It gradually brought me in and I ended up really into the characters and storylines. I like how it just didn't stay in the Amish world. It went into the English world in the middle of the Vietnam war. It touched on many different subjects from that time period such as,war,hippies,peace and depression that many faced coming back from war and fighting during peace rallies right here in our own country. I am really hoping that two of the main characters (don't want to ruin storyline) get together. They are made for each other. I think one may sense it.  I loved the revival part. It was a well described part and made you feel you were right there under the tent. The book kept me reading til the end and waiting for book 2 too come out. I am really excited as to where the story goes and what happens.
