Hannah's Choice by Jan Drexler

About the Book
Hannah Yoder loves her quiet life on the banks of the Conestoga Creek. In 1842, this corner of Lancaster County is settled and peaceful – yet problems lurk beneath the placid facade. Hannah's father worries about the spread of liberal ideas from their Mennonite and Brethren neighbors. And Hannah blames herself for a tragedy that struck their home nine years ago. She strives to be the one person who can bind the threads of her family together in spite of her mother's ongoing depression and her sister's rejection of their family. But her world is threatening to unravel.

When two young men seek her hand in marriage – one offering the home she craves and the other promising the adventure of following God's call west – Hannah must make a choice. Faithfully perform her duties to her family? Or defy her father and abandon her community?

I always enjoy an Amish novel set in a historical time, and Jan Drexler’s newest novel is no exception. Hannah’s Choice takes a look at the Amish experience in the early 1840s. Eighteen-year-old Hannah Yoder loves her simple life along the Conestoga Creek in Pennsylvania, yet when her family decides to move west to a community in Indiana and two men vie for her lifelong affections, Hannah must make a couple very difficult decisions. As Hannah deals with love, faith, and family, her story is an interesting read and fans of Amish fiction will not be disappointed. I would recommend it and now look forward to reading more from Jan Drexler in the future.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Hannah’s Choice and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
