    Dad says NO, heart says YES!

    Isaac's Decision by Ruth Ann Nordin Nebraska Series Book 9 Two previous books in this series; Eye of the Beholder & His Redeeming Bride lead up to this book. I read them a second time before reading Isaac's Decision and I'm glad I did as the stories flow together so well. This story is about nine years after His Redeeming Bride. Isaac Larson is the son of Dave and Mary. At age fourteen Dave told Isaac not to talk to “that Craftsman girl” and being the obedient son he is, he obeyed. His eyes did not, everyday in school he still would look at her and admire her. At seventeen, Dave starts encouraging Isaac to marry and Dave already has the bride in mind. Eva Connealy, the school teacher. Isaac wants the only girl he has been forbidden to have, Emily Craftsman. Emily lives in the shadow of her birth mother, Cassie. She has her beauty but that is all. As a young girl she made the choice not to be like her mother. And yet people seem to judge her by her parents past. She has dreamed of having Isaac as her own for years but when she finds out that he banned from her she almost gives up. Good thing the word quit is not in her vocabulary! I love this series. It is full of characters with flaws. Neil Craftsman's story is one of redemption but being the town knew of his sins, some people won't let it die even now that he is a new man. Especially Dave Larson. I enjoyed watching the story and characters unfold in this book. Seeing the way they think helps you understand motives, even if they are not right. When you get to know the younger siblings, it is exciting to know that maybe their stories will come about one day as well. In fact, one of the younger sons is in the South Dakota Series, Bride of Second Chances. It's just a small part but Dave and a younger son are in the General Store. I love how Ruth lets her characters pop in other stories now and then. **Sexual situations within marriage.

    Really like the characters but the sex scenes weren't necessary.

    I've read this entire series, and the sex could be cut from the all and the story would be far more enjoyable. In reading the series, it seems those scenes were just copied from one book to the next--redundancy is boring. The characters are fun to read about, and I thought this story was cute overall. Actually, for the entire series, cute is the word that comes to mind :)

    Isaac's Decision was a beautiful story that gives the point of view of a child growing into an adult and the decision they must make. As
    children we often tend to follow what our parents tell us for the most part but there comes a time when we find something that calls to us
    even more so to the point that we find ourselves standing up against our parents decision to make our own and be the adult that we are
    becoming. In this story you get to witness two young adults making their decisions only their decision also involves so many past
    experiences between their parents that have left their families not talking to one another. Isaac or one has been forbidden to talk to Emily
    because of something her father has done that she has no knowledge of and Emily doesn't understand it. But Emily goes out of her way
    to capture Isaac's attention the way she once had it. Through this story we learn another way in which the past of others may affect our
    lives and how we must choose to make our own decisions in regards to this. It also goes further to show us just how much people can
    change over time with the right events occurring just as the individuals in this story have done. But even with change it's hard to believe
    and can often still haunt people sometimes but all in the end can be forgiven. 

    I truly loved this book and would most definitely recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone who loves to read. Ruth is a
    wonderful Author and I look forward to reading many more of her works.

    Another one of her best books

    I had been waiting for this book for so long that when it finally came out I couldn't put it down. The way the characters were written just goes so nicely with the other books it seems like they are all just one book. Ruth Ann Nordin to me is just the best author ever.
