Book Description: 

From the pen of bestselling Amish fiction author Jerry Eicher (half a million books sold) comes a charming new series set in Snyder County, Pennsylvania.Debbie Watson is a young Englisha girl who has grown up admiring her Amish friends, the Beiler sisters. As she prepares to graduate from college, Debbie considers making the life-changing decision to convert to the Amish faith and lifestyle.Soon Debbie’s presence in the community attracts the attention of two suitors: Alvin Knepp, the youngest son of a poor Amish farmer, to whom Debbie is very much attracted; and Paul Wagler, the more successful and sought-after man, whose constant attention to Debbie reminds her of her old Englisha boyfriend–whom she’d rather forget.

Jerry Eicher’s many fans and readers of Amish fiction will love this heartwarming new series from a master storyteller.


This is a unique twist on the usual Amish novel.  The plot revolves around the family of Bishop Beiler.  One family member  is eager to break out into the English world.  However, a local English girl is just as eager to learn more about the Amish lifestyle by moving in with the Beiler family.  You will find many interesting twists and turns as the chapters unfold. The book kept me eager to turn the pages.  This was a new author for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed his writing.  I look forward to reading more of his books.
