Product Description

When Anna Konig first meets Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter of the Charming Nancy, their encounter is anything but pleasant. Anna is on the ship only to ensure the safe arrival of her loved ones to the New World. Hardened by years of living at sea, Bairn resents these somber people - dubbed "Peculiars" by deckhands - across the ocean. As delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions afflict crew and passengers alike, Bairn finds himself drawn to Anna's serene nature. For her part, Anna can't seem to stay below deck and far away from the aloof carpenter, despite warnings.

When an act of sacrifice leaves Anna in a perilous situation, Bairn discovers he may not have left his faith as firmly in the past as he thought. But has the revelation come too late?

    I couldn't put this book down. It was fascinating! I felt like I was on the voyage with Anna.....I enjoyed it so much that I mailed it to my friend in TN to read. Can't wait to see #2.

    I appreciate also that the author did her research on this subject. My ancestors came from over from Ireland, scotland and England to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. I can only imagine the hardships they went through as well as celebrations and joy.

    What detail! A very real and intricate account of life during this voyage.

    Loved this book and the cover! Based on several true facts, a Christian Historical Romance set in 1737 on the ship Charming Nancy. Some of my ancestors sailed over from Germany in 1905, so I had a strong interest in this book, but my family came over on a passenger ship - a much different experience than in this story.

    Anna's minister insists that she go with the Amish group from her village that is traveling from Ixheim, Germany to America, because she knows English and can translate for everyone. She doesn't want to leave her Grandparents, but will do as she's asked, digging up her rose to take with her. In addition it is beneficial to escape the reach of the nearby Baron who wants to destroy a family in their community, which affects them all. Anna is a very caring person with a strong faith.

    Bairn is a young man who has been on a ship with the beloved Captain and his brother, also a Captain, since he was a young boy. Very ambitious, he's on the right track for promotion and earning great wealth - important goals for him. Then they transport this group of German Amish and Mennonite passengers to America and he's forced to face some difficult things, including his tragic past and lack of faith.

    What detail! I'm not sure how Suzanne knew what it was like to be on a ship back then, but it is a very real and intricate account of life during this voyage. Richly told, the story is intricately woven; an amazing story of courage, salvation and love for others that's hard to put down.

    A young Amish girl leaves her country and grandparents behind to sail with her Amish community across the Atlantic Ocean to join her father in Pennsylvania. It was an arduous trip that lasted 83 days and tested their faith and endurance. A wonderfully descriptive novel of a young girl struggling to make a new life in a new country.

    Annas Crossing (An Amish Beginnings Novel), By: Suzanne Woods Fisher

    Suzanne Woods Fisher has written an excellent book! This is her best book yet I think! Annas Crossing is a wonderful combination of both Amish and historical fiction. It is a very refreshing twist on both types of fiction. This is a book that grabbed hold of me from the start and didnt let go until the very end. I felt as though I was experiencing what the characters were in the book. The description and details used in the story were so well written. A very moving story. I am so looking forward to reading more books like this. There was lots of action, adventure, mischievousness, trials, pain, and heartache in this breathtaking story. So be sure to set your sails and get ready to enjoy the captivating adventure through this wonderful story. Be sure that you get your copy of this book. Remember it also makes a great gift.

    5 stars!
