Somewhere to Belong (Daughters of Amana, #1)Somewhere to Belong by Judith McCoy Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this glimpse into the Amana colonies. This isn't an area of history I knew much about, so it was fun to read and learn.

The characters are interesting and very diverse. I enjoyed Berta's selfish antics and growth as much as Johanna's steady walk. The overall theme of the importance of truth - and with it the consequences of untruth - is well portrayed.

Judith Miller leaves the door wide open for more books to follow and I'm sure I'll pick them up to see how all these stories end.

I enjoyed reading your review. I read an Amana novel a few years ago. It was by Melanie Dobson. I also found the Amana life interesting - I'd never heard of them prior to reading this novel:
