Review: Almost Amish by Kathryn Cushman

ImageAbout the book:

Overcommitted and overwhelmed, Julie Charlton is at the breaking point. She knows she should feel blessed as a mother and wife–but she just feels exhausted. And then, the miraculous happens. Her sister-in-law Susan, a Martha Stewart-in-training, lands the chance to participate in a reality TV series about trying to live like the Amish and needs another family to join her. It’s just the break Julie needs.

But the summer adventure in simple living soon proves anything but simple. With the camera watching every move, Susan’s drive for perfection feels a lot like what they left behind, while Julie suddenly finds herself needing to stand up for slowing down. Whether it’s cooking, cleaning, or dressing differently, each new Amish challenge raises new complications…and soon each woman learns unexpected lessons about herself and her family.

My thoughts:

I have read all of Kathryn’s books so far and do like her writing. I don’t think I liked this one quite as much as some of her earlier ones but it is a light read with a few good points to take away for everyday life in the “rat race”. I have to say, the character of Susan drove me insane and I was glad when she finally lightened up a bit. 🙂
