I really enjoyed this book (and Book 1 The Parting). Ms. Lewis is a wonderful author who pulls you into the characters and storyline with ease. I can't wait until the next one in this series!

Beverly Lewis has done an excellent job of continuing Nellie's courtship. She introduced new characters that help the reader view another perspective on Suzy's death. She developed a family & shared a real heartwrenching relationship. I am anxious to read the next book but not ready for the series to end.

Nice follow-up to the first book. The end leaves you wondering what will happen next. You can see the family's deepening relationship w/ God and how Nellie is drawn away from the Old Way. Look forward to book #3.

This is the 2nd book of three in the series, "The Courtship of Nellie Fisher. The first book begins in 1966 and this book starts in 1967. Beverly Lewis describes a time in an Old Order Amish Community that is seeing changes as some people are finding salvation, (a source of contention among the Old Order), and are wanting to change their life accordingly. Love and loyalty are tested as losses are experienced and relationships strained. Quick read.

This Book one of three kept me guessing. Nellie meets the love of her life and it is threatened by changes in the rules the Amish set up for daily living. This is one of the better books by Beverly Lewis; although I have not read one by her I did not like.

3.5 stars, really.
This is the second book in the Nellie Fisher series. I really liked how it shows a struggle of what people go through, and in this case struggles with faith and hardships that the various characters encounter. The main portion of this book is about Nellie Fisher and her beau Caleb whom she desires to marry one day. Her family is deciding to follow the New Amish Order rather than the Old one that she and Caleb are set on, but she loves how her family has been acting and changing as they read God's Word more and more. I think the saddest portions to read in this book is about Rosanna and Elias who are adjusting to parenthood after being given a set of twins they have adopted as their own.

very good as always, this one could use a third book in the series in my opinion, there is just so much left to know. I truly love Beverly Lewis Amish bookd, the characters are so real, they are in my mind well after I finish the book. I can't wait to read more of them.

I found this series to be different than most Amish books. It gave a more realistic picture of the difference between their religion and true Christianity and showed why it is so difficult for the Amish to convert. I enjoyed this book much more than I have other Amish fiction because it was more realistic and also more unique.
