Overview

Jacob Sauder abandons his Amish heritage when the woman he loves, Rachel Zook, agrees to marry his brother, Simon. Though he adapts to the ways of the "English" - even fathering twins - he remains an outsider. When the mother of his twins dies, Jacob knows only one way to raise his children - the Amish way. He brings them home to the community he vowed to leave forever. For his children he can do anything, even be strong when he sees Rachel, his love, married to his brother.
Years ago, Simon lied to ensure a future with Rachel Zook as his wife. Now Rachel is barren, a disappointment to him. Unaware of the lie Simon told to drive Jacob away, Rachel believes Jacob abandoned her when he left the Amish community. Shocked when he returns with two-year-old twins, Rachel knows there can be nothing between them, for marriage is a life-long commitment among the Amish. But the twins need a mother and Rachel loves children. As she cares for Jacob's children as if they were her own, her feelings for him deepen into a love that cannot be.
Jacob's Return is the story of a prodigal son, a forbidden love, and a fanatical preacher. As shocking as it is compelling, Jacob's Return is both uplifting and unforgettable. A wonderful read, this is a universal story about love and faith in impossible circumstances.

    Jacob's return

    I liked this book and didn't want it to end, although I was happy for the families. I would like a sequel to see how the families benefit from their move. Also, believe this book would make a good movie.

    Much better than her second

    Much better than Butterfly Garden, her second Amish Genre book. This is closer to the genre definition than that one.

    Jacob returns after leaving his Amish home to find his former girl married to his more than slightly ferhoodled brother whose jealousy feeds his mental problems and puts everyone in danger.

    Still not true Amish genre, this us still a wonderful book and yes, it would make a great movie treatment

    Didn't expect to enjoy this, but surprise, surprise.

    Just a short review, but you need to know how well-written this book is. The characters are so real and so very well fleshed out. The story is unlike any other that I had read. I learned a lot about living Amish. But that was only a side benefit. This book is all about the inner jealousies. loves and stresses within a family. Just read it. Love so very strong it was painful at times to read through their pain.
