Lizzie and Emma - The Buggy Spoke Series Book 2
Publisher: Good Books
A heartwarming tale of two Amish sisters whose simple life in the country isn’t always so simple—from “a gifted writer” (Publishers Weekly).
The author of Little Amish Lizzie returns with a new story of the Glick family, in which Lizzie is now eight years old and just as spunky, sensitive, and mischievous as ever. It feels like her big sister Emma is just the opposite—she is sweet, respectful, and good at just about everything that Lizzie isn’t, not to mention pretty. Lizzie likes being the kind of girl who loves hiding for hours to read a good book and racing down too-steep hills on her sled and eating lots of doughnuts—she just wishes she could make herself walk instead of running once in a while so she wouldn’t get in trouble at school.
Times are hard for the Glick family—Dat’s business is still not doing well and his cheerful optimism is beginning to wear thin. Lizzie and Emma are young, but they begin to understand that Dat and Mam don’t have enough money and their family might be in trouble. Will the sisters be able to put aside their differences to support each other through their family’s financial struggles, tragedy in their community, and yet more changes?
This second book in the Buggy Spoke series, which follows Lizzie through her younger years as she struggles to mesh her hot temper and willful ways with her Amish faith, is a delightful account of another way of life, filled with vivid descriptions of Amish food, farms, and traditions—an enjoyable adventure for young readers as well as a fun prequel for fans of the author’s bestselling Lizzie Searches for Love trilogy.
