Another Satisfying Amish Tale Sep 15, 2008
Beverly Lewis specializes in writing stories set in Pennsylvania's Amish country, and the final entry in her Courtship of Nellie Fisher trilogy brings us closure on another set of well-written Christian fiction. Lewis has found her niche in the book industry, and she fills it very well with entirely readable novels that take you to another place and mind-set.
Nellie Mae Fisher has been separated from her beau Caleb when her new religious convictions come between the two lovers and their families. Nellie is trying to go on with her life alone, but she is filled with anxiety not only for Caleb but for her older sister Rhoda who has left the Plain life, and her friend Rosanna who has lost her adopted twins. In addition, Nellie is still mourning the loss of her younger sister Suzy, but she is trying to feel God's presence in her life as things change in her Amish community in the 1960s. Nellie's dearest wish is for Caleb to decide to come to the New Order Amish, but after his father is gravely injured, she fears he will be forever gone from her life. Lots of circumstances must change before any happiness can be found for the members of Honey Brook community.
As usual, I like Lewis's easy writing style and her characters; Lewis has a gift for creating believable people for whom you care a great deal. This book is very preachy, however; for regular readers of Christian fiction that probably won't matter, but at times it does get a bit tedious. In addition, Lewis has a tendency to tie things up way too neatly, and changes of heart seem to be too quick to be realistic. In fact, if I could I would've rated this one 3.5 for the overly hurried happy endings, but since I do enjoy Lewis's stories and the wonderful world she creates, I feel that overall 4 stars is apt. I do hope Lewis will stray from the formula she's been using in her past two series and find some new twists she can spin in our beloved Lancaster County.
