    Sensitive, gracious look at an Amish community

    Where Love Grows is the third book in Jerry Eicher’s “Fields of Home” trilogy. I enjoyed the first two books, and have been looking forward to the rest of the story.

    Susan Hostetler’s English friend, Teresa, who joined the Amish community in the second book of this trilogy, is marrying a man she truly loves. Susan is happy things have worked out so well for Teresa, but what about her own life? The suitor who once cheated on her seems sincere, but can he be trusted? Sometimes she wishes he could be more like Steve, her father’s new hired hand.

    And then there’s the secret her father has shared with the family. When the secret is confessed to the church, Susan’s parents must suffer the consequences by being put under the bann for a time. Will this be the last straw that pushes Susan back to the English world she flirted with in the first book of the trilogy?

    Jerry Eicher interprets hard issues facing the Amish church for his readers with grace and sensitivity. The issue of the bann, or excommunication, has always been a difficult one within the Amish community and nearly impossible for those of us outside the church to understand. As Susan wrestles with what her parents are going through, she is able to come to a greater understanding of what it means for her own faith, and we, as readers, wrestle right along with her.

    Jerry Eicher remains unique among writers of Amish books in his insider’s view of this fascinating culture, but that’s not the only reason to enjoy his books. He weaves a story that never fails to please!


    Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for providing a copy of this book for my unbiased review.
