Book Review, “Arms of Love,” Kelly Long author

Arms of Love, by Kelly Long, is the touching story of two young Amish people during the Revolutionary War and their families.

Lena and Adam have loved each other since childhood.  But as Lena’s mother lay near her deathbed, she asks Adam to give up Lena until he frees himself from a darkness she senses in him.  Lena, not knowing of the request, finds his break with her devastating.  When Lena’s father asks her to consider Adam’s brother, Isaac, she accepts Isaac’s proposal, creating quite a twist in the story.  As Adam seeks to remember the forgotten past and Lena’s father grows more compassionate toward Adam, the families grow closer and more honest with each other.

I found this book charming.  The characters stole my heart from the beginning, and even the worst characters wormed their way in by the end.  I had not read an Amish book set in this time period before and found their dilemma over remaining neutral interesting.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Amish fiction.
