Book Review: Hannah’s Choice

Hannah’s Choice, by Jan Drexler features a cover depicting an Amish woman, from the back. She’s got on a bonnet, but I believe this book is a departure from the norm in Amish/bonnet fiction. This true historical fiction book, set in 1842, offers much much more than the average book of this genre.

This is true historical fiction, laden with fascinating bits of the lore of yesteryear. On top of that, the author has built a story with much conflict, tension, and highly interesting characters. The plot thickens nicely due to the characters’ competing goals.

The title character, Hannah must choose essentially between love and family of origin. Morality, mixed marriage, mental illness, and differing levels of spirituality, are just a few of the interesting elements to this story.
