Eicher has left me wondering what is going to happen in "Where Love Grows" with Teresa Long and her fatherless son, the Englisha girl that home home with Susan Hostetler, to learn the Amish ways.Was this review helpful?

With the Deacon and ministers being strict on Teresa, she is accepting of the ministers ruling of her, but not mentioning her newborn son, the Hostetler's take him to church. Then something and or someone comes along and see that changes are made so that Teresa can better her faith. Is everyone accepting of these changes?
Even when Deacon's son fancies the Englisha girl?
Susan is faced with her own heart pulling her in directions to make decisions.
But is she too stubborn to really seek God for help and to listen to him?
Will Susan give Thomas as chance to talk to her?
Does Susan's dad, Menno, have a secret and will he tell it?
A surprise ending that no one will see coming in the book and are you left hanging?
Will Susan and or Teresa follow her heart?
I cant wait for "Where Love Grows" to be sent.

For those who love Amish fiction
This was a great followup to "Missing Your Smile". The main theme is that Susan's Englisha friend want to become Amish in order to raise her son in that Faith. It's all about Teresa's travails in trying to reach that goal. I have read other books by this author and they are always good. I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful?

Following Your Heart - The Story Continues!
This is a continuing story of Susan Hostetler and her Englisha friend, Teresa Long. Susan has returned home bringing Teresa her friend from the outside world and Teresa’s baby Samuel with her. When Teresa told her boyfriend she was having his baby he wanted no part of her unless she got rid of the baby. Wanting to give her baby a chance and to get out of the situation she was living in and completely away from her boyfriend Teresa convinced Susan to let her and baby Samuel come along with her. Teresa’s hearts desire was to settle in with the Amish community and raise Samuel in the way God intended for her to raise him. Upon returning home Thomas, Susan’s ex-boyfriend, wanted to immediately begin where they had left off. Susan hasn’t and doesn’t plan on forgiving Thomas for betraying her by kissing her best friend. Thomas is the reason Susan fled the Amish community for the outside world. They had grown up together and planned to be married some day. Thomas wants her back. As the story continues two men become interested in Teresa. Yost Byler has been a bachelor all his life and is in need of some house cleaning and some good cooking. Those are the main interests he has in a life with Teresa. On the other hand, James the son of Deacon Ray is interested in her too, but not for the same reasons that Yost is. There are a few twists and turns in this book; also, a hidden secret from the past. Which character in this book has a less than perfect past life that they hope to keep hidden forever? Is Teresa interested in Yost or James; perhaps neither one? Will Susan allow her heart to soften toward Thomas and forgive him? Can she forgive him? This was a great read! I would strongly suggest if you haven’t read book one you do so before reading this book. They go hand and hand together. I wouldn’t want you to miss out on all that takes place in book one that leads into book two. You will read all about Susan’s life in the Englisha world. Once again author Jerry S. Eicher brings God, Faith, Trust and the importance of a loving family into this mix. It was a wonderful page turning read. I loved it and I gave it a 5 star review! I am looking forward to reading Where Love Grows the third book in this series. I wish to thank Jerry S. Eicher and Harvest House Publishers for sending me a copy of Following Your Heart to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
