Somewhere to Belong is the story of two young ladies on the Amana colonies (for lack of a better word). Johannah has always been in Amana, but longs to see what the outside world looks like, while Berta has seen the outside world and longs to go back to it. But rather is forced to stay in a place she doesn't enjoy. We see the simple life the people led and experience the battling with Berta for her to take hold of their ways and participate. Berta has a good heart, but is very mischievous lol which tends to get her in trouble quite a bit.
It took a little while to get into the book, but when I did I loved the story, I love a book that takes you to that location as you're reading and makes you feel like you're right there, which this author has done! I wouldn't quite say that its a romance novel as its more about Berta and Johannah's journey to discover where they belong, although there is a bit of romance in it. It was a very good read and I look forward to reading more of Judith Millers work in the future. Definately worth a read!!
