Book Review: A Simple Change

Judith Miller, has crafted a beautiful new novel, in the Home to Amana series, A
Simple Change. Growing up in Kansas City, with the hustle and bustle,
carefree lifestyle, and modern conveniences, Jancey Rhoder is little prepared for
the new lifestyle that awaits her as she steps into small town Iowa, Middle
Amana. Yes, the convenience of having a maid prepared her meals is one of
the noticeable changes for Jancey, but women not being able to teach the
children their schooling is the one that plucks the strands of her heart the
most. How can this change really be simple? One day completely immersed in
popular culture, and the next trying to adjust to the rules and regulation of this
new culture. I was intrigued by the heart of Jancey, how she longed to learn the
ways of the Amish. Judith Miller is an expert storyteller, and she does not
disappoint in this novel. There is the usual love interest in this book, but it is
the love that Jancey has for her mother who is dying and the care that she gives
to her that spoke volumes to my heart.  I would give this book 4 stars.
