      Do you remember reading Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet And do you remember how hard it was to read with his way of wording scenes You want to read the simple version of Leslie Gould s Adoring Addie.The Cramers and the Mosiers have been angry for so long can any one remember why Addie Cramer is the only girl in a household with six brothers She s hard working, obedient, honors her parents, and does everything to please them Jonathan Mosier s family is returning back to Lancaster County He is the [...]

      This is a wonderful Amish rendition of Shakespeare s Romeo Juliet Addie and Jonathan have fallen in love but have to figure out what caused the huge rift feud between their families before the family will bless their relationship This story also deals with alcoholism and depression in several of the characters Having both issues in my own family, I certainly could relate to the feelings of pain associated with them The Amish in Leslie s story do address the issues but I will not reveal a great d [...]

      I really didn t think I was going to be able to get into this book because there are so many characters in the beginning Then as I kept reading they started to sort themselves out and the book really got interesting In fact I couldn t put the book down until I finished it in one sitting It was that captivating I just had to find out how it all worked out.My favorite character was Addie Once she decided she knew what she wanted she wasn t afraid to speak her mind Nineteen years old and completely [...]

      A Great Read About Relationships Addie Cramer s parents makes life for her quite unbearable at times Having a nasty mean brother doesn t help either This book bothered me as I read about the unfairness in overlooking what the boys in the family get away with while keeping a firm hand on their daughter who in my opinion works hard and gets very little appreciation for it.Addie s parents have a certain young man picked out for her to marry but she doesn t love him Addie has her heart set on anothe [...]

      Addie just wants to be noticed and loved The only daughter in a family of boys, with a mother who seem depressed all the time, Addie wants to be appreciated Instead it feels like her family is just rushing to push her into marrying Phillip Eicher After meeting Jonathan Mosier she is convinced she doesn t love Phillip and never did What follows is a mix between the Hatfields and McCoys and Romeo and Juliet The first third of this book was slow very slow, but when it picked up, it was a maddening [...]

    8. Janet on said:

      This is the second book in the series and like the first I loved it and it frustrated me at the same time.There was a lot of reference to Cate from the first book but in a random way Addie is the only girl in her family and is being promised to Phillip, Addie doesn t want to marry Phillip, she falls in love at first sight with Jonathan Jonathan and Addie families have had a feud going to for years and years.

      The only girl in a family of boys, Addie Cramer has long been saddled with the brunt of the housework and childcare, due to her mother s bad knee But worse than continuous laundry and cooking are the expectations Addie s parents have placed on her Although her older brothers are having a wild running around time, driving cars and attending parties, Addie is expected to settle down and marry a good Amish man and they have their heart set on Philip Eicher, the Bishop s son Addie will admit that Ph [...]

    12. Amy on said:

      This book was very cleverly written and frankly has the ending that Romeo and Juliet should have had I really like the Amish twist Chinese Shakespearean tails I also like the Christ centered plots while still having a very good storyline that was interesting.

    13. Sydney on said:

      So much better than the first in the series I enjoyed this book.

      Adoring AddieA great book about love and solving problems Can t wait to read from this author Love the Amish ways and life style.

    15. AlegnaB † on said:

      Quite a lot of this book was boring Also, the feud, being set among an Amish community, didn t seem realistic to me.

    16. Megann Zeigler on said:

      Book two of the Courtship Series I read One too but now have to wait for three and four to arrive Can hardly wait Should think about getting them all and reading in sequence Fascinating and totally worth the read.

      3.5 STARS This has been a fond series to read so far with Courting Cate, but this one has been my least favorite so far The entire series of The Courtships of Lancaster County is going to be based upon William Shakespeare s plays, and this one was Romeo and Juliet This tale has it s own unique spin.At first Addie is being strongly pushed to marry Phillip Eicher, the Bishop s son, but her heart is not set on him at all She feels nothing for him, yet her parents are making her feel so bad by sayin [...]

      Book two in The Courtships of Lancaster County series by Leslie Gould is another wonderful Amish Rendition of a Shakespeare tale These books are stand alone so I wouldn t worry much about which order to pick them up though I ll say I really enjoyed this book than Courting Cate Both books were really good but this one was simply my favorite of the two The characters were enjoyable and easy to relate to.Addie Cramer s parents are set on her marrying Phillip Eicher and are furious when she begins [...]

      Madi s Review I m not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed in this book After reading Courting Cate the first book in The Courtships Of Lancaster County series , I was expecting For the first hundred pages or so, nothing happened Addie didn t meet anyone new, she wasn t getting to know her fiance, there was no back story on any of the other characters, nothing Even after I finished the book I still didn t feel like the author had endeared Jonathan to me I just kind of felt like this book was [...]

    21. Rambling Readers on said:

      Leslie Gould improved my opinion of Amish Fiction last year with Courting Cate She gives a fresh spin to both Amish fiction and Shakespeare s famous works by combining the two in her Courtships of Lancaster County series Adoring Addie is inspired by the classic story of Romeo and Juliet Because the plot is built around such a well known tale, it is predictable overall I enjoyed Adoring Addie, but not quite as much as Courting Cate, which is based on The Taming of the Shrew, a story line unfamili [...]

    22. Caitlin on said:

      I was so excited for this book, the idea of Shakespearean plays put together with the Amish is a great idea However, after reading Courting Cate, this substantially fell short I think picking the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet was just too much to bit off and chew.Spoilers First off Trying to take a tragic love story, that is well known for its tragedy, and make it a happy ending story really doesn t work I am not saying that I wanted them all to die But having the characters simply sleep [...]

      I recently was given the chance to read a wholesome story of faith, romance and strength Adoring Addie by Leslie Gould is the second story in the series The Courtships of Lancaster County and it is a wonderfully written story Here is a brief summary of the book.Not since Romeo and Juliet has a couple faced odds this long, the Cramers and Mosiers have been angry with each other for as long as any one can remember Things had cooled to a simmer until Addie Cramer and Jonathan Mosier fell head over [...]

      When I saw that this was going to be the Book of the Month for March in one of my reading groups, I got pretty excited about it, because the story line seemed really interesting However, I hadn t read the preceding story in the series and worried I would miss some things, so when both of these came on sale on , I grabbed them both and figured I would read them eventually.I was able to read Courting Cate for a challenge in another group, but I was quite surprised to find that I enjoyed it so much [...]

      When will Addie Cramer own up to her parents that she has nothing in common with Phillip Eicher, the bishop s son She just can not image marrying someone she does not love Besides he is very boring and knows nothing about the real Addie and her feelings She wants to marry someone who is actually interested in listening to her wants, needs and fears So far the only man that seems to be interested in what she has to say is Johnathan Mosier.Johnathan Mosier is mesmerized at the first time he laid e [...]
