Katie Opens Her Heart by Jerry Eicher, ©2013
Harvest House Publishers (February 1, 2013)
***Special thanks to Ginger Chen for sending me a review copy.***
Jerry Eicher (nearly half a million copies sold) returns with the first book in another of his delightful series centering on Amish life. Here is the story of a young Amish girl, Katie Raber, who finds she wants more from life than to be known as simply “Emma Raber’s daughter.”
I love the photo on the cover and above the chapter headings. My uncle had a pair of horses, Pat and Mike; what beauties they were! Large draft horses. I remember a photo of me astride the breadth of a wide back, after possibly their long day of haying, with my ankle-high brown leather shoe dangling down. My uncle had his hand across my leg making sure I stayed. I had a big grin to be up that high.
Emma Raber wants her life to continue as it has with her young daughter. However, Katie Raber is no longer a child. I met a woman once who kept her daughter home from school, calling in "she wasn't feeling well," because the mother was lonely. Seclusion. Katie wants to be known as herself, not as an extension of someone else's reflection.
This is Book 1 of the Emma Raber's Daughter Series. This sets the stage of a life lived well. Smiling, getting beyond what might have been to what can be.
For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
--Psalm 18:28-30 KJV

I really enjoyed this book. I am happy though that I have all three of this series to read at once. It makes it much more enjoyable not having to wait for the next one to come out *smile*. Jerry Eicher is so talented in his storytelling capabilities. I could feel the pain that Katie was feeling and her Mamm too. I loved the story and have quickly moved to the second story. I have to say I did chuckle at the scenes with Ruth Hochstetler, she was one determined woman. Great story, 4 stars from this reviewer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
