Fifteen years ago, Rachel Mast left her Old Order Amish life. She is now regarded by her kinfolk as an “Englisher.” Because she made this break before she was baptized, she is not shunned, When Rachel’s Uncle Aaron is arrested for murder, Rachel sets out to clear his namer. Complicating Rachel’s search is her uncle’s refusal to answer any questions or to accept legal counsel, trusting that God will provide for him. A fast reading and interesting book.

Summer Reading Club Review: And the Mountains Echoed

From Donna Southard

Title: And the Mountains Echoed

Author: Khaled Hosseini

This book is about the intricate life paths of several generations of a family whose origins begin in Afghanistan. I feel that the author developed interesting twists and turns of the characters lives’ that were impacted by political, social, economic and cultural factors. I liked how the author used the power of love to make connections between the characters’ relationships with the realistic events that temporarily test its strength. I really enjoyed reading this book. I highly recommend this book as a plot that exposes the transgression of a generational family through its joys and hardships
