|Fraying at the Edge|
by Cindy Woodsmall
In Fraying at the Edge, Amish raised Ariana Brenneman and English raised Skylar Nash were unknowingly switched at birth. Twenty years later their lives are turned upside down when they forcefully "decide" to live with their birth parents for a year. The young women experience the obvious culture shock and the reader sees each one's new reality through their eyes and actions. Both have their beliefs in everything, especially God, challenged. They even realize that things aren't always as cut and dry as they seem.
Forgiveness is the theme conveyed throughout Fraying at the Edge. I had trouble initially getting into this book but the storyline picked up for me and then I didn't want to stop reading. The minor characters made the story more enjoyable. There is some resolution with certain characters surprisingly but the next book is needed to reveal the decisions at the end of this novel. Neither of the books I read in this series are stand-alone novels, which I expected since they are part of a trilogy. I look forward to reading Gathering the Threads, book three and discovering how Ariana and Skylar react now that they have lived in both the Amish and English worlds. I was provided a complimentary review copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
