My thoughts: THE GIFT OF FAITH is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last. I enjoyed reading about Daniel and Faith and their up and down romance complicated by rumors, a baby, other girls and a possible arranged marriage. Faith has a lot to deal with, and through it all, Daniel is there, holding her hand and keeping her strong. A sweet romance that fans of Amish fiction will devour. I was given a copy free and all opinions are my own.
