Amish Promises by Leslie Gould book review
Leslie Gould is a wonderful author who tells stories of family dynamics, Amish life and choices that the Amish have to make as well as healing. This story weaves the intertwining of a military family, with the husband Joel having suffered PTSD and physical injuries while in Iraq. The family moves into the wife's grandparents home, praying that the quiet solitude will provide healing for Joel. The Amish community provides friendship and help when needed. The Lehman family next door are still adjusting to life without the mother; the husbands single sister Eve is helping to raise the children and run the household. I loved this story because of the challenges that Eve faced dealing with her brother and the choices she made when she falls in love with an Englischer. The plot kept me guessing as to what would occur next; the characters are rich and the story is sweet.
I was provided this book by Bethany House publishers for me honest opinion and review. I was not compensated in any way.
I would rate this story 5 stars and I look forward to reading more of the author's books.
