"Hannah's Choice" by Jan Drexler

Set in the Amish country, this book tells the story of not one but several women as they decide who to marry.  The main character must choose between two men--one is a part of her religion, while another is from the Mennonite offshoot.  To complicate matters, one wants to stay in the area while the other wants Hannah to move to another part of the country.  One is stable and secure, while the other is adventurous and dangerous.  One wants Hannah to be a stay-at-home wife, while the other wants her to help save black slaves escaping the slave trade.  Talk about drama, right?  Another character must decide between an Amish man and an American gangster.  Unlike most stories that just focus on love triangles, this book brings in historical context, family history, and character opinion.  It is an interesting read.
