he is a wonderful author and would recommend all his books to anyone who would love to read nice clean literature.
This has been a tough series for me. As you know, I have been hesitant for some time to actually read Jerry Eicher’s books but I finally relented after receiving this book from Harvest House to review. Finding Love at Home is the third book in the Beiler Sisters series. I don’t think it’s too repetitive to mention how Jerry writes such amazing, true-to-life Amish stories – because he grew up in the Amish faith. This would give him a unique perspective that most authors who write Amish fiction just can’t reach. I have seen this perspective – the influence from such a lifestyle – in every one of his books. It’s also possible that a man’s point-of-view would be different from a woman’s – I think this adds a realistic outlook to the harsh reality of his stories. Yet this is very easy to picture when I think of the Amish lifestyle – it’s much harsher than the soft lives most people enjoy. But oh, how I am beginning to love reading these stories… I lose myself in them – every time! The characters portrayed in this story are comfortable friends to me now… and although I was hoping for something different – wow, I was blindsided again – everything worked out for the best. I dare not say more, so you can enjoy the book. Do not miss this book or the rest of the books in this series.
