They Were An Unusual And 
were an unusual and twist to an Amish romance story I enjoyed this Micah was a villain that was easy to hate I didn t like him at all Unfortunately I know men like him overbearing know it alls who are selfish jerks I think we all do Very realistic If you like Amish fiction ick up a copy of Ms Simpson s THE PROMISE You will love this book Especially Benjamin swoon I was given a copy free All opinions are my own. Fine life they could build together beginning with an alpaca farm of their own But he can see that Phoebe's brash vow is all she will consider no matter what her heart wants As Ben falls for her gentle manner and sweet sad eyes he comes to understand his daunting task to convince Phoebe that together they can make a new romise that will never be brok. .
