Item description for Sarah's Son by Jerry Eicher...
Overview Set in Daviess County, Indiana's Amish country, this continuation of Sarah finds Sarah now married and settled on the Yoder farm outside Whitfield. Sarah's sister has plans for a trip out West, agreeing with Sarah that the cut on James' arm that seems slow in healing is nothing serious. Esther has a premonition of things to come, but does even she know what really is coming? Be with Sarah when she receives heart-breaking news in Colorado, and when she learns of the Amish school shootings in Nickels Mine, Pennsylvania. This is a story that brings together an enticing mix of conflicts: divine healing, the powwowing practices of the Amish, the internal workings of Amish culture as it deals with problems, and one person's personal faith when facing terrorism.

More About Jerry Eicher
Jerry Eicher lives in Farmville, Virginia, with his wife, Tina, and their four children, all of whom are still at home. He runs a construction business and writes books as a sideline.
He wrote his first fiction while in grade school. A short essay entry he submitted in a writing contest won a year's free subscription to the magazine sponsoring the contest, and publication among the other second place finishes. Through an entry in the Writer's Edge, Harvest House picked up the Adams County Trilogy in early 2008.
Eicher writes his stories from an inside perspective. He holds a love for the Amish people, their culture, and their way of thinking. They are a unique part of American heritage, as Amish in their present form exist only in North America. Amish are people with a pertinent message to give, and Eicher seeks to be true to that message.

I love reading and this one was very good. I couldn't lay it down. Need more clean books like this. Donna
Much better than Book 1 Sep 1, 2008
Book 1 ('Sarah') was arduous to slog through, rather stilted and amateurish. Other readers seem to agree, from what I've read. This sequel is much better. I encourage you to give it a chance, and recommend it to those who want to learn more about the Amish communities. Mr. Eicher has first-hand knowledge since he was raised Amish.
