"Reckless Heart" by Amy Clipston

About this book:

“Slipping. Lydia Bontrager's youngest sister is frighteningly ill, and as a good Amish daughter, it falls to Lydia to care for her siblings and keep the household running, in addition to working as a teacher's assistant and helping part time at her grandmother's bakery. Succumbing to stress, Lydia gives in to one wild night and returns home drunk. The secret of that mistake leaves Lydia feeling even more restless and confused, especially when Joshua, the only boy she's ever loved, becomes increasingly distant. When a non-Amish boy moves in nearby, Lydia finds someone who understands her, but the community is convinced Lydia is becoming too reckless. With the pressures at home and her sister's worsening condition, a splintering relationship with Joshua, and her own growing questions over what is right, Lydia could lose everything that she's ever held close.

 Series: As of now, no.

Spiritual Content- Scriptures are quoted; Prayers are said; Talks about God, His Will, & trusting Him.

Negative Content- In the first chapter, Lydia is semi-drunk and she has that on her conscience throughout the book.

Sexual Content- One or two quick, not-detailed kisses.

Pre Teens-
(and a half)
New Teens - 
High School age Teens – 
My personal Rating- 
{I couldn’t completely connect with Lydia since she has such a huge responsibility of being the oldest sibling}

Another fabulous book by Mrs. Amy Clipston!

Check out the interview with her, meeting her and reviews of her books “Roadside Assistance” and “DestinationUnknown”. :)

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
