Seeing Your Face Again is the second book in the Beiler Sisters series by Jerry Eicher.
Book 2 in this series is a perfect example of the point I made in my last review – the young heroine in this book is on her way to joining the church (no easy task, mind you), only to discover that the man she loves has walked away from the church, his family, and her… to pursue a life in the city.
Oh the irony…
Oh the agony…
Just one more example of how REAL Jerry Eicher’s story lines are. More often than not, life doesn’t go the way we expect.
I don’t want to give away anything so I’m going to keep this review short and to the point…
1 – This is definitely a story worth reading. And… if you’re going to read this one you should really start with the first book in the series and then read this one.
2 – I am beginning to see the appeal. No, Jerry’s books aren’t easy to read and the heart-rending turmoil is difficult to deal with but that is what makes these books so irresistible. If they were easy to read, they wouldn’t leave you with such strong feelings about them.
And it is certainly telling that Jerry Eicher can write such deep emotions and show so realistically how his characters deal with them. WOW!
And just in case you’re interested, here is the LINK to my mother’s review of this book.
Here is a brief synopsis from Harvest House Publishing:
Debbie Watson is a new convert to the Amish faith and still learning the plain ways of the community in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. She has already attracted two suitors: the insecure but lovable farmer, Alvin Knepp, and the brash Paul Wagler who reminds Debbie of the boyfriend she happily left behind in the Englisha world. When Alvin leaves the community for the big city, Debbie is crushed. Though her heart is with Alvin, she considers Paul’s continued interest in her. Should she simply give in and marry Paul….or wait to see if Alvin comes home?
Seeing Your Face Again is another Amish fiction treat you’ll love. With Jerry Eicher’s sales at more than half a million books, his Amish fiction fans continue to wait eagerly for his next heart-felt story, brimming with the authenticity he brings from his own Amish background.
Don’t forget – I have one more book to go in this series:
