A World Away

A World Away - Nancy Grossman While the story was enjoyable it was good but not great.

Interesting idea to place a romance of this type between an amish girl on her rumspringa and an englisher boy but it felt kinda wrong. To me it seemed permiscious on the part of Eliza to have the sort of pysical relationship she did. In her Amish and home life the sorts of behavior she displayed would have ultimately lead to marriage. It's called courting for a reason.

Now I'm not a prude-having lived with my husband 7 years before I married him but the character is amish and has never had a boyfriend before so I would expect her to go a little slower. She's only 16-even lot's of non-amish girls aren't allowed to date for the first time until then.
