Mennonite on the Edge By Cynthia Yoder Book and $5 Amazon GC Giveaway @cynthiastweets


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?
