Review: Seeing Your Face Again by:Jerry S. Eicher
About the Book:
Debbie Watson is a new convert to the Amish faith and still learning the plain ways of the community in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. She has already attracted two suitors: the insecure but lovable farmer, Alvin Knepp, and the brash Paul Wagler who reminds Debbie of the boyfriend she happily left behind in the Englisha world. When Alvin leaves the community for the big city, Debbie is crushed. Though her heart is with Alvin, she considers Paul's continued interest in her. Should she simply give in and marry Paul....or wait to see if Alvin comes home?
Seeing Your Face Again is another Amish fiction treat you'll love. With Jerry Eicher's sales at more than half a million books, his Amish fiction fans continue to wait eagerly for his next heart-felt story, brimming with the authenticity he brings from his own Amish background. Book 2 in The Beiler Sisters series.
About the Author:
Jerry Eicher taught for two terms in Amish and Mennonite schools in Ohio and Illinois. He writes of his experience growing up Amish in his memoir My Amish Childhood. Jerry has been involved in church renewal, preaching, and teaching Bible studies. He lives with his wife, Tina, and their four children in Virginia.
Seeing Your Face Again, the second book in The Beiler Sisters series. It is a book I couldn't wait to review. In this addition we find Debbie Watson a recent convert to the Amish faith, is at a proverbial crossroads when the young man that she felt was to be her future love, Alvin leaves their community. In turn, she is left with Paul and while he is more than willing to step up to the plate--she isn't so sure. Debbie grew up as an Englisher, but as a neighbor of an Amish family--she always felt that she belonged there as well. So she is allowed to join their community.
In Seeing Your Face Again, there are several romances that we get a sneak peek into, with Debbie's love triangle being at the center of it all. The author is really great at twisting and turning all of them with a final conclusion being drawn in the end. I love how everything is able to play out and how they all come together. Debbie converts only to have the man that she is in love with to walk away from the faith, now what??? It is an amazing love story built on promise, hope, and a lot of faith.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Harvest House.
