Book Review | The Bishop’s Son by Kelly Irvin | The Amish of Bee County

I was almost a very unhappy lady this past week. UPS sent me a notification that my package was on the way. I waited all day for it to arrive. Nothing…

Then I got a message that it had been rescheduled.

I had to wait two more days to get my hands on this book, but it was worth EVERY second.

Another triumph for Kelly Irvin!

Kelly certainly doesn’t write easy, sweet, cutesie stories. Her plots are intense, her characters are deep, and her solutions are never quite what you’re expecting.

Make of that what you will – I’m not spoiling the book for you!

Don’t try to make me!

Have you ever been in a situation where you see your life going in to different directions? Bother paths have appealing aspects and both have struggles you’d rather not face. Which do you choose? HOW do you choose?

How will Leila choose? Well, to find out – you have to read the book. And I think you’ll LOVE it! But then I’m somewhat biased because I LOVE IT!

And I’m already looking forward to the next book! Hurry Kelly!

Read it! Love it! Share it!

More from Zondervan about The Bishop’s Son:

Two men offer Leila two very different futures. Will she choose with her heart or with her faith?

Leila Lantz has been in love with Jesse Glick from the day she first saw him at his father’s store, but she can’t make sense of his intentions. One day he wants to come courting, the next he seems to be putting distance between them.

Jesse may be the bishop’s son, but his faith has been wavering of late. If he is so unsure, is it fair to give Leila false hope for a future he doubts he can provide?

Then there’s Will, Jesse’s cousin. He has been trying to keep his feelings for Leila a secret, but he also knows Jesse is wrestling with his faith. Would declaring his feelings for Leila be in her best interest or simply serving his own selfish desires?

Leila knows she can choose Will and be secure in her own future. But when her heart speaks, it’s Jesse’s name she hears. When will God make His will known to her?

Could leaving everything she knows—even her own faith—be a part of God’s plan?
