seeing your face again

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.

My Comments: Great read – I am always amazed when a man writes from a woman’s point of view, but Jerry Eicher gets it right on. I wonder if this ever happens – an Englisher turns Amish. That causes me to suspend disbelief because I can’t see it happening. As much as I admire the Amish faith and the Amish people, I could never give up being English. What really attracts Debbie to the faith? Is it Alvin? He doesn’t seem like a huge prize to me, but maybe because he is unattainable he attracts Debbie. The book otherwise smacks of reality and interest. I will continue reading books by Jerry S. Eicher!

Thank you NetGalley! This is my honest review.

    I am currently reading “Holding A Tender Heart” by Jerry Richer. I haven’t read any of his books in quite a while, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed them. The character of Debbie is so sweet and I can’t wait to see what is in store for her as she becomes a member of the Beiler household. Thanks Jerry for providing such entertaining books. Amish fiction is one of my favorite genre’s.
