Book Review: Amish Promises

Cover Art


Journey Down a Quiet Lane in Lancaster County Where Love and Heartache and Friendship and Healing Meet
When Joel and Shani Beck arrive at their new home, they're looking for peace. Shani is thrilled to have Joel back from Iraq, but he needs time to heal, and the quiet of Lancaster seems just the place. They can't imagine any trouble with their Amish neighbors, the Lehmans, but things get off to a rocky start when their son is involved in an accident that injures one of the Lehman boys.

Eve Lehman has run her brother's household ever since the death of his wife, but Tim's a stern patriarch. Despite his protests, she's drawn to the new neighbor, Shani, and the two begin to form a strong friendship forged on faith and family. Things seem like they've quieted down until Joel's single and handsome army friend Charlie catches Eve's attention--a man unlike any Eve has ever met. Suddenly life for both families becomes more complicated than any of them could have ever imagined.

My Reflections:

Amish Promises by Leslie Gould is the first in her series of Neighbors of Lancaster County. It is a unique and quite simply a pleasure to read.

I have not read an Amish book quite like this one, it is about an Amish family and a English family living side by side. The English family, Joel and Shani Beck are looking to start fresh.

Shani is elated to have Joel home from Iraq, however she soon discovers the war has changed the man she loves. Thinking a quiet rural environment would be the ideal situation for her husband to heal and recover emotionally and physically, Shani moves the family to Lancaster County a picturesque and quaint community.

Trouble arrives at their doorstep early on when their son is involved in an accident with their Neighbors son.

Loved the characters, enjoyed the story-line, an adventure like no other, I so enjoyed reading this novel. I was sad to flip the last page and end the story, good thing this is only book one, can't wait for the next installment!

I received this book free of charge in return for my honest review from Graf-Martin Communications. Thank you Graf-Martin!
