Book Review: Amish Promises

Amish Promises
Neighbors of Lancaster County - Book One
By Leslie Gould

Journey Down a Quiet Lane in Lancaster County, Where Love and Heartache and Friendship and Healing Meet.

When Joel and Shani Beck arrive at their new home, they're looking for peace. Shani is thrilled to have Joel back from Iraq but he needs time to heal, and the quiet of Lancaster seems just the place. They can't imagine any trouble with their Amish neighbors, the Lehmans, but things get off to a rocky start when their son is involved in an accident that injures one of the Lehman boys. 

Eve Lehman has run her brother's household ever since the death of his wife, but Tim's a stern patriarch. Despite his protests, she's drawn to the new neighbor, Shani, and the two begin to form a strong friendship forged on faith and family. Things seem like they've quieted down until Joel's single and handsome army friend Charlie catches Eve's attention - a man unlike any Eve has ever met. Suddenly life for both families becomes more complicated than any of them could have ever imagined. 

Amish romances rank among my favorite type of books, so of course I was interested in reading Amish Promises. Going into the story though I realized this isn't your typical Amish love story. There's English involved which I think makes this a perfect story. Well that and the fact that there is a great friendship and a forbidden romance. Amish Promises is the perfect for a rainy afternoon or when you need a feel good book. I also recommend Amish Garden and The Dawn of Christmas
