I agree that this book did not hold my interest! It went from one plot to another. I will not be reading any more of this authors books.
Very choppy and does not hold your interest Mar 3, 2008
I agree with the other comment about it now being on par with Wanda Brunstetter and Beverly Lewis novels. I doubt I will read other books by this author.
SARAH Feb 8, 2008
I truly enjoyed "SARAH". The in general writing is a "see Spot run" experience, but more important was the realness with which Mr. Eicher expressed the Amish way. I could feel his ownership of these happenings and their impact on an Amish life.
I look forward to "SARAH'S SON". Thankyou Mr. Eicher
can tell a male wrote this. this girl sarah was raved on and on about all her beauty, and not how amish are at all. over done Feb 7, 2008
surprised by such a difference in a male writer and a female one on amish discription of this beautiful awesome amish girl. just breath taking and almost over done with all the discription of her. otherwise a good story, that was the only thing that sort of went against the grain
Disappointing Jan 20, 2008
I do not feel this book was anywhere close to being on a par with the writings of either Beverly Lewis or Wanda Brunstetter. Many of the sentences were poorly constructed and choppy. The characters were undeveloped and unbelievable as Amish. The author added quite a few unrealistic story plots and made the Amish behave in ways totally uncharacteristic of acutal Amish. How many Amish go around calling each other "little creeps" or refer to other members of their church in that fashion? How many Amish women go around tainting jars of Ponds Cold Cream hoping an Amish girl will burn her skin with it?? How many Amish feel that being rich is a very desirable trait in a husband for their daughter? I could list inconsistency after inconsistency, but will stop with this: just how many Amish girls choose a light cream-colored cloth for their wedding dress???!!!
