Jan Drexler in her new book “Hannah's Choice book coverHannah’s Choice” Book One in the Journey to Pleasant Prairie series published by Revell Books introduces us to Hannah Yoder.

From the back cover:  When love and family conflict, will she listen to her head . . . or her heart?

Hannah Yoder loves her quiet life on the banks of Conestoga Creek. In 1842, this corner of Lancaster County is settled and peaceful–yet problems lurk beneath the placid façade. Hannah strives to be the one person who can bind the threads of her family together in spite of her father’s worries, her mother’s depression, and her sister’s rebellious ways. But her world threatens to unravel.

When two young men seek her hand in marriage–one offering the home she craves and the other promising the adventure of following God’s call west–Hannah must make a choice. Will she stay true to the faith of her family or defy her father and abandon her community?

Jan Drexler is in top form. From the very beginning this is an exciting read and it gets more interesting as you go on. There is so much story being told and everything will captivate you. 1842, Lancaster County, PA and The Civil War has not happened yet. Pennsylvania is always a beautiful place, there is so much to see and do. Hannah and her family have generations of family in this land so that is part of the choice; stay or go? And that is the major conflict should she stay or should she go? Does she act because she wants to stay with the land or does she follow her heart and go west? This is a true dilemma and one we get highly engrossed in.  All of the characters are very interesting and you want to know all about everybody. This is a fun read, it is a fast read, however I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down.  Ms. Drexler is an excellent writer and knows how to entertain and captivate your attention. I recommend this book and I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
