Book Club Reading for month of Dec.

The book club in which I belong to it was my turn to pick this month's book for us to read. I have chosen them to read The Covenant (Abram's Daughters Book 1) by Beverly Lewis. It takes places in post WWII in PA and is about Amish sisters and how their decisions in life will effect the others. I have not read the series in quite a few years, but it was this series in which got me hooked about reading about the Amish.
