Belonging by Karen Ann Hopkins
Published Date: April 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
I left everything I knew behind.
But it was worth it. He was worth it.
No one thought an ordinary girl like me would last two minutes living with the Amish, not even me. There are a lot more rules and a lot less freedom, and I miss my family and the life I once had. Worst of all, Noah and I aren't even allowed to see each other. Not until I've proven myself.
If I can find a way to make it work, we'll be NOAH & ROSE
But not everybody believes this is where I belong.
My Review: This was a well written book! I loved both Belonging and Temptation (the first book in the series). We are given a world, where things run simpler. Boys and girls know what is expected of them. But then, one Amish boy falls for an English girl. The community is turned upside down, with other things being realized. For those who have read the adult books centered on the Amish, will love this series!
A native of New York State, Karen Ann Hopkins now lives with her family on a farm in northern Kentucky, where her neighbors in all directions are members of a strict Amish community. Her unique perspective became the inspiration for the story of star-crossed lovers Rose and Noah. When she’s not homeschooling her kids, giving riding lessons or tending to a menagerie of horses, goats, peacocks, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs and cats, she is dreaming up her next romantic novel.

This could not be happening. I knew that voice. It belonged to Levi Zook. He was in my Aunt’s kitchen, standing behind me. Close enough that I felt his breath on my hair.
