Product Description

Rebecca Keim has just declared her love to John Miller and agreed to become his wife. But she's haunted by her schoolgirl memories of a long ago love-and a promise made and a ring given. Is that memory just a fantasy come back to destroy the beautiful present...or was it real?

When Rebecca's mother sends her back to the old home community in Milroy to be with her aunt during and after her childbirth, Rebecca determines to find answers that will resolve her conflicted feelings.

Faith, love, and tradition all play a part in Rebecca's divine destiny.

    What does a young Amish girl do when she has feelings for a young Amish boy, only to lose him when his parents turn Mennonite?

    I have never really thought about how it affects the whole family, as well as friends and church members when someone leaves the Amish faith. Its not just the act of leaving that affects the one person, but because the Amish are very connected to each other, when someone leaves, others cant just leave with them without choosing to leave the faith, too.

    Jerry has such a unique way of showing the reality of the plain life - and how family and friends live. Even when children are leaving on planned trips or have important things to do, they are expected to do regular chores and keep up with school, church, and family needs on a daily basis and they do their chores without fussing (at least in front of their parents).

    Rebecca is a fine example of a young Amish girl who travels to another town to care for a family member when her mother tells her to go, yet she spends most of the time just before the trip helping her family, and willingly takes on her aunts duties for several weeks until her aunt is well enough to handle them.

    REBECCAS PROMISE

    Jerry S. Eicher

    Is First Love easy? Is it for forever? Yes, it is. Read this book and discover how it can.

    Well, what about the mature love that can come after?

    We follow our heroine as she avoids, still remembers, is forced to confront her remaining love for her First Love, who she promised to wait for-a ring was involved, which shes kept.

    Yes, she feels conflicted! Love, loyalty to the first and Second Love, and technically, shes engaged to both at the same time, if thats possible.

    It doesnt always end the way it does in this book, but it can evolve this way, and this book will fit many peoples lives.

    Dont pass the opportunity to let this book convict or reassure you, depending on your truth. Be honest!

    A book full of the reality and the warm charm of Jerry Eichers work. A book worth reading just for its charming and real vignettes.

    I got all 3 books in this series. Loved them all. The only trouble is that I read them all the way through in one sitting and lose a lot of sleep. Seriously, they were great.

    I was very disappointed in this book! This is the first book I've read by Jerry Eicher and it makes me not want to read any of his other ones. However, I am reading the second book to the series and I'm only on page 41 and it has been ten times better than the first. "Rebecca's Promise" seemed to drag on forever and nothing exciting ever happened. Everything that happened in the first novel could be summed up into one simple paragraph, it was that uneventful. I also didn't really like the way Eicher depicted the Amish in his novels, other Amish novels I have read seem to have a more acurate depiction. I love Amish novels, but this is the worst one I've read so far. I'm definitely hoping the second novel in the series, "Rebecca's Return" keeps being enjoyable. I also have the "Hannah" series by Jerry Eicher and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will not be so boring.
