Review: Finding Love At Home by:Jerry S. Eicher
About the Book:
From bestselling Amish fiction author Jerry Eicher, here's another charming book about life among the Plain People.
All Debbie Watson wanted to do was join the Amish and live a simpler life. But when she moved in with her Amish neighbors, the Beiler family, she had no idea the turmoil that lay ahead.
As this final book in The Beiler Sisters series opens, Debbie is poised to marry Alvin Knepp, the Amish farmer she's loved all along. Ida Beiler is recovering from the tragic loss of her husband-to-be in a farming accident, while her younger sister, Lois, is still running away from her faith. Debbie takes it all in stride as she brings calm to the sorrowing Beiler family while finding happiness with the young man of her dreams.
Book 3 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.
This being the last book in The Beiler Sisters series, the author gives you a bounty full of blessings. There is so many different dynamics in this last book that you can not wait to see how it is going to end. Debbie moves in with the family that she has grown to love so much only to find after moving there that her presence may have created a storm of sorts. Ida was doing her best to recover after the loss of someone so close to her heart.
Lois is still trying to decide if the Amish lifestyle is something she wants to commit to. The Beiler Sisters have led anything but a boring lifestyle. Many times our plans and God's are so incredibly different and what is equally terrifying is we don't usually see it until many years later. Waiting on God and His perfect timing is so difficult, yet it is something we must do and these girls learn exactly that. I can't wait to see what Jerry Eicher comes up with next!
