This is a well woven piece of Amish fiction. What I really enjoyed about this book is that the characters are not always proper and perfect. So many times Amish fiction eludes to that type of character and it ends up being a good read, but very predictable. This novel had enough real feelings that it was not always so easy to guess what might happen. If you'd like an easy read that's entertaining, this is a great choice!
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

There were several pages in this book that spent time disproving religions other than Christianity. Although I am a Christian, I did not appreciate that about this book, and I could understand how my friends of other faiths would be put off by this reading. If I were having dinner with Jesus, I would not want to a theological discussion, but rather I would want to talk to him about his life, my family's life, and some (well many) Scriptures that I have questions about. It wasn't until the very last pages that some of these things were touched upon. I didn't understand many things about this book, and I guess in the end, I wondered whether or not I would believe that was Jesus sitting across from me.
With that being said, I have to point out that faith is a very personal journey. I pretty sure we all have different questions we'd like to ask Jesus. While I am sure there are some that would love this book, it just didn't fit for me.
