Mennonite on the Edge By Cynthia Yoder Review

She's a newlywed...twenty-four...and desperate to know why she's so unhappy. 

Though a country-girl at heart, MaryJo wants to ditch her identity as a Mennonite in marrying Adam and living a life of adventure in Manhattan. But news from home kicks up memories she’d tried to forget. While she begins to question her choices, Adam lands a high-profile job, making a move seem impossible. MaryJo must make peace with her past and her current situation so that she can live the life of her dreams with Adam. But can she reconcile her craving for serenity in the City that Never Sleeps?

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- A mix of emotions went through me as I read each chapter. The book was to be read in one sitting with no other choice because of how well it flowed, I did not want to put it down.  Very well paced with just enough romance included.  This is a great book for adults.  I would definitely read more by this author.
