      I loved this story. The characters are fresh and original, the author's voice is unique, and the tale is a sweet, winding one with several twists. Abel is an Amish boy on Rumspringa, accepted into an elite summer program at Jamestown. Marigold is a privileged teen who's floundering in her quest to find herself. Yet these two click when they first meet, each seeing something rare and special in the other. But it's not love at first sight. It's more like intrigue upon first meeting.The clash of cu [...]

      This sweet story has woven it's way into my soul. I couldn't put it down and highlighted quotes as though they were secret messages just for me, such as, "It's okay to no longer be the girl you were."I can't wait to read the other novels by this author!

      When you're in your teens finding yourself is never easy. But then you add on the pressure of a family's expectations and that direction you're seeking becomes so much more difficult to find. Able's dreams lie beyond his Amish community and his family's needs. Marigold doesn't know what her ambitions are yet, but her current lifestyle is an embarrassment to her famous author father and the rest of her family. Able needs something more than the simple lifestyle of his family, while Marigold wants [...]

      I purchased this book despite having no previous interest in Amish fiction. Boy, am I glad I did. It was so much more than Amish fiction. It was the story of two teenagers trying to find themselves despite being raised in families where a certain future is expected of you. It was the story of living in a sibling's shadow and stepping out of it to become who you are truly meant to be. But, most importantly it was a story of loving another during an age in one's life where you are still trying to [...]

      I really enjoyed this. It has a very cozy feel, and the romance was sweet. All the characters were fully formed and I found myself rooting for so many of them, even though their goals were at odds with one another's. I'm going to read more by this author, for sure and certain. ;)(FYI this is not an Amish romance, but a romance with some Amish characters. I've seen a bunch of reviewers giving low ratings due to misunderstanding this.)

    6. Jo Anne on said:

      Despite growing up in Pennsylvania (and two hours north of Lancaster) I never knew much about the Amish. So I enjoyed seeing the people through MS. Monroe's characters. At its heart, the novel was a love story about two different people who, despite their differences, want to make their love work.I gave the book 3 stars, which meant I liked it. I would have gone to 4 stars but for the poor job of editing and proofreading. My question to Ms. Monroe is this--why would you write such a good book ye [...]

      Such a sweet, fun read! A story about finding your true self as a young adult and finding love at the same time. I enjoyed how Marigold and Abel's trajectories kept intersecting yet they had so many missed connections, which kept me on my toes guessing about how, and if, things would pan out for those two.Marigold is a character whom I have little in common with (I'm definitely more like Lily, for better or for worse) and I was worried that she could easily become a cliche or irritating to me. H [...]

      For Sure & Certain is such a beautiful book with so much heart and a wonderfully written cast of characters. I fell for the two leads instantly and wanted so much to see where they ended up in life. This is a romance, but it's also a story about finding your place in the world and knowing who and where you want to be, something most of us struggle with when we're that age, and I saw myself in both Marigold and Abel. I loved the resolution of the characters and the relationship between them. [...]

    9. Cayla Ann on said:

      Oh my gosh!!!! I don't even know how to express the love I have for this book! I have always enjoyed reading Amish books and love stories but this one took my breath away. The way Anya spun the story making me fall in love with the characters and there story! Her writing is so beautiful and I can't wait to read another of her books! This story has made it's way into my heart! <3

      I was privileged to read an advance copy of this book and totally loved it. It was different enough to be very interesting. I really liked the relationship between the two main characters and how they adjust to their new worlds. Highly recommend it.

    11. Kniki on said:

      Terrible. The story was all over the place, I couldn't get myself interested. Glad it was free!

      loved all the characters and how they interacted with each other.enjoyed reading the story of abel and marigold

    13. Nanedsmomba on said:

      Different and goodThis book shows 2 young adults trying to figure themselves out. Is college the path Abel should take and leave his Amish life and family behind? Is moving to live with an Amish family a better decision for Marigold, who appears lost and not understood by her own family? Or will their love draw them back together? I absolutely loved this book and hope it's a good overview of the Amish life style. Get your copy now so you too can enjoy this sweet book!!

    14. Lynda on said:

      Okay. I finished the book. I read it. All of it. BUT why one star?About the time I'd start liking the story, Ms. Monroe would do SOMETHING that would ruin it.A note to the author: I believe you DID do research on the Amish. For the most part you were accurate in your description of their lives. BUT realize, those of us who LOVE Amish fiction do so partly because we are not subject to foul language most of the time.Unfortunately you used the "f" word. And WAY too often for my taste.Yes, you had t [...]

      For Sure and Certain is a great premise, I love reading about other cultures, even in fiction works. It started off strong, really capturing my attention, but somewhere along the line it felt like it slowed down, maybe got a little stilted. I felt that it did pick up just a little towards the end and I enjoyed the twist thrown in. If the story had been a little more fluid through the middle it would have been a five star book for me. I loved the multi point of view aspect of this story, seeing t [...]

    16. Melissa on said:

      This was my first book by Anya Monroe. I think it was my first book on the Amish. It was nice seeing the differences that they live their lives.Marigold is confused about her future. She does not know what she wants to do and she does not want to go to college and waste her parents money. She meets Abel, a Amish man on Rumspringa and they become good friends. Abel takes her home for a weekend and Marigold decides she wants to stay. She is soul searching. Trying to decide who she is and what she [...]

    17. LAKristy on said:

      Well written, with several editing and grammatical errors. This is a stand-alone story with no cliffhanger.I enjoy books that take me on journeys I'll never experience in my real life. This is definitely one of those stories, as I'll never spend time in an Amish household. I'm not sure how realistic the story is with the details of Amish life, but it felt authentic and respectful.As with all Young Adult fiction, there's angst. The main female character was an oddly interesting combination of fli [...]

      A solid 4 starsThis was a sweet ride, from near-beginning to end. The concept was original, the writing was respectable, & the characters were likeable (especially surprising since they're so young yet mature). The book started a bit stiff, I thought, but I was caught up pretty quickly in the story, which started flowing naturally early enough. I finished this in one night. I had to take breaks for various "life stuff," & was eager to get back to urging Abel & Marigold toward their H [...]

    19. Sassy Beta Reading & Review on said:

      To me, this was a little bit slow to start (I even had to step away for a few days before I could pick it back up - don't think I was in the right mindset for a teen clean romance). Once I finally picked it back up, I was determined to finish it and I'm glad I did. This is written as a multi pov and what is funny, the couple in the story really didn't spend a lot of time together. Most of their time was spent in each others world doing new things and thinking of the other, but not a lot of time [...]

    20. Crystal Yawn on said:

      For sure and certain is a story of love, and 2 teenagers finding themselves. It's a story of opposites and learning who you are. It is very well done and addicting.Abel is a young Amish man who wants to learn. This goes against the teachings of his people. In finding himself, he finds Marigold and everything he thinks he knows and wants changes.Marigold has a past, she really just wants to find herself and finds peace in the ways of Abel's family. Both want each other, but both want different th [...]

      Heart wrenching coming of age.This is a story of an Amish boy and an Englisher girl who fall in love and try to find their place in the world. Strangely, they seek solace in each other's family. It was wonderful and refreshing to meet Abel and Marigold. Their budding relationship is so sweet. I have to say though, that I found Abel a bit mean and selfish at times while Marigold was a portrayed as patient and forgiving to the extreme. It was easy to forget, at times, how very young they are.The c [...]

    22. C. on said:

      Would have been a 5-star read without all the profanity, "F" bombs, crude sexual talk, and sexual immorality!This book had a very interesting story, well developed characters and two lead characters [Marigold and Abel] that you care about, but this book is absolutely not like most Amish-themed fiction!Far too much trashy elements from the college characters, and Marigold's sister.Due to the language and immorality at college it is definitely not a "clean" read, but no explicitly described sex.So [...]

    23. Sherri Malia on said:

      Such a sweet young romance!!This is such a sweet and amazing story. I have always admired the Amish for their values. Abel just grabbed my heart from the beginning. He’s trying to hold up to his morals and values. Then there is Marigold, she just wants to find who she is and where she belongs is this big world. The story of these two finding each other and the developing love, while each trying to stay true to themselves, was such a heart touching story. And I had admiration for the two for th [...]

      I grew up around Mennonite and Amish. I found this special friendship that develops between an Amish young man and a wealthy young girl from an academia/business steeped family very interesting. Although their backgrounds seemed dissimilar, both young people were fighting the seeming conflict between being true to their natural bent and to the expectations of their family/community. This is not your typical Amish love story. I found it had all of the conflict I enjoy in a great bildungsroman (co [...]

    25. Susie Q on said:

      "I loved everything about this story!"I read and listen to a LOT of Amish and/or contemporary fiction. I loved the way Anya Monroe wove both genres into one story. The depth of Marigold's character isn't seen in the first part of the book and you get to see her as she blossoms into a young lady who knows who she really is. Piper Brown did a great job as narrator. Her voices truly show her love of the characters and how they react to the problems they face. This is a book that I will For Sure &am [...]

    26. Dora Okeyo on said:

      For Sure and Certain takes on a journey of new love and the search for one's path in life through the eyes of Abel and Marigold. He's Amish and she is Irish but definitely not Amish. Both feel the pressure of their parents expectations plus their own desires and along the way each sets out to find their path and chart their own course.Anya writes in such a beautiful way, you'll breeze through this book.If you're looking for a short and sweet romance novel, pick this.

    27. Kate Larkindale on said:

      I sort of enjoyed this book, but there were so many typos and grammar errors it really ruined it for me. I can't bear it when shoddy copy-editing takes you out of the story every three or four pages.

    28. Anna on said:

      I don't always read YA novels but this one was a fun read, it was not predictable and had me engaged in the story until the very end. I would have given it 4 stars had it not had so many typos (about 20 that I counted).
