Item description for The Forbidden (Courtship Of Nellie Fisher V2) by Beverly Lewis...
Overview Longing to marry Caleb Yoder even though Caleb's father has forbidden him to court her, Nellie Fisher struggles with her feelings as she continues to cope with the death of her sister, Suzy.
Publishers Description The church split has not extinguished their love, but the demands of one man still stand in their way. Caleb Yoder's father has forbidden him to court Nellie Mae Fisher, whose family belong to the New Order. Can the couple satisfy the expecations of the people while remaining true to their hearts?
From Publishers Weekly Book two of Lewis's series is exactly the kind of predictable Amish novel her readers have come to expect: multiple character plot lines, romantic entanglements, tension within the religious community, and at least one tragedy. Here, Lewis continues the saga of Nellie Mae Fisher, whose Amish family embraces a "New Order" personal faith that defies the "Old Order" beliefs they've always held dear. Nellie hopes to marry Caleb Yoder, but because of her family's change of belief, Caleb's father forbids him to marry Nellie on pain of losing his inheritance. Lewis capably portrays the struggle Nellie feels between the attraction of her family's faith and the yearnings of her heart. Other plot threads continue: Nellie's sister Rhoda is drawn into the modern world and its promise of convenience, excitement and automobiles, while a couple who have been given a set of twins to raise discover that their burgeoning interest in the New Order faith causes the birth mother to have second thoughts about their fitness as adoptive parents. Lewis's readers seemingly can't get enough of her tales about Amish life, and this latest installment won't disappoint. (May) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
