" Seasons: A Real Story of an Amish Girl" by Elizabeth Byler Younts

" Seasons: A Real Story of an Amish Girl" by Elizabeth Byler Younts  gets 5 stars from me.

 It is a different type of story than what I was expecting when I first started reading it. It isn't like other Amish stories that I have read. This story is a true story about the authors grandmother. When I first started reading this book I wasn't sure I would like it but after finishing it I have to say I am disappointed that it wasn't longer. I want a sequel.

The book starts out with Lydia Lee being a young child of seven and finishes when she is in her twenties and her marriage.

Lydia Lee was the oldest child in a poor Amish family but she does her best and  is thankful for all that she has.  This book will make you thankful for what you. This story shows what love really is and what being poor is!  Lydia Lee has her share of heartaches and I found myself hoping that things would improve for her. Like I have already said I am hoping for a sequel. I want to hear more about Lydia Lee.
