Blessing for Miriam

In the second book of bestselling author Jerry S. Eicher’s new Land of Promise series, Miriam Yoder is looking forward to her wedding day with Wayne Yutzy. But when beautiful Esther Swartz arrives to care for her ailing grandmother, Miriam is wary of Wayne’s past relationship with Esther.

When storms rip through the small Amish community in Oklahoma, Miriam’s daett arrives to help in the rebuilding efforts. Under pressure from Miriam’s daett the relationship with Wayne is upended, leaving Miriam to wonder if she must now build her new life as a single Amish woman.

My Comments: Love this author and love this book.  I read someplace that reading Amish fiction is like taking a vacation in your mind, and I so concur with that. This book took me to a place I would not normally get to go and visit. Miriam and her relationship with her parents intrigues me. It is SO not like my experience with my family, especially my parents – father in particular. The submission  of Amish women is mind-boggling to me. Miriam had  very rough go in this second book. Everyone wanted to run her life (in my opinion). She became stronger as she fought tragedy after tragedy. I so admire her and I wonder if there are many women Amish or otherwise quite like her. I finished this book with high opinions of the women and not so high opinions of the men. They definitely rule the roost! I recommend this book and this author to fans of Amish fiction – it is a definite vacation for the mind.

I received this ebook free from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
