Product Description

Gideon Fisher wants one thing out of life -- to be left alone. This is not the Amish way, but he's devastated after the death of his wife and son to the point of losing his faith. He buys a farm on the outskirts of the district and pulls away from his community. But when a freak spring snowstorm brings a beautiful Englisher to his farm, what choice does Gideon have but to let her in?

Publisher's Description

Gideon Fisher wants one thing out of life -- to be left alone. This is not the Amish way, but he’s devastated after the death of his wife and son to the point of losing his faith. He buys a farm on the outskirts of the district and pulls away from his community. But when a freak spring snowstorm brings a beautiful Englisher to his farm, what choice does Gideon have but to let her in?

Dallas socialite Avery Ann Hamilton is intrigued by the Amish farmer who pulls her out of the snow and into his austere lifestyle. Poor little rich girl, Avery has just gone through (yet another) bad breakup. Every man she meets only wants her for her father’s money. All she has ever wanted is to be loved for herself. Avery soon discovers the Oklahoma Amish country is the perfect place to hide out and heal her broken heart.

But she finds a peace in those back roads that she’s never felt before. Now her life has purpose and meaning as she connects with God and those around her. And there’s something more as she begins to care for this man who needs both love and forgiveness.

Gideon never wanted to live again much less fall in love, but Avery finds her way into his heart, showing him the beauty of life and God’s greatness. Yet as the feelings between Avery and Gideon grow, can they overcome their dissimilar lifestyles, or will their sheer differences pull them apart?

    This review was written for Saving Gideon - eBook.
    They were from two very different worlds..Avery Annie Hamilton and Gideon Fisher. Annie came from wealth and lived the life that went with it in Dallas, TX. Gideonwell, Gideon was Amish. He was a member of a small community in Clover Ridge, OK.

    Their worlds met by accidentliterally.on a snowy night. Annie had gone to OK to surprise her fianc only to be the one surprised by his unfaithfulness. With tears in her eyes and snow coming down, she lost control of her car and ran off the road and into Gideons field. He thought hed heard a horn blowing and went out to investigate. Thats when he found a pretty Englisher with her head leaning on the horn of the car.

    Annies wounds needed healing (not just the physical ones) and Gideon needed healing in his heart. His wife and only child had drowned during a storm and he just didnt want to go on living without them. He had sold their family farm and separated himself from his community and church.

    Read this well written story to find out how they helped each other. Its a beautiful story of friendship, forgiveness, healing, love and finding their way back to God. Even though Ive read this book several times, I have never been ready for it to end! Thank you Amy Lillard for a wonderful read!!

    Wow! Amy Lillard created a beautiful story with Saving Gideon. I was caught up in the story right from the start. The characters were well developed.

    Gideon Fisher rescues Avery Ann Hamilton from her wrecked automobile during a snowstorm and takes her to his home. Gideon doesn't live close to anyone and he prefers it that way. But yet he allowed this Englisher to stay in his home. What will happen when his niece brings food over for Gideon to eat? Will a relationship develop and who is going to save Gideon from himself?

    Read this heartwarming novel. I felt like I was right there with each character experiencing the heartache, devotion, despair, love and faith each one experienced. 5 stars for Saving Gideon. Amy did an excellent job of bringing an Englisher into the community of Clover Ridge and how lives could be renewed with God's faithfulness and love. Pick up a copy of Saving Gideon today and you will not be disappointed.

    I stumbled upon Miss Lillard's work entirely by accident but boy am I glad I did!

    She is a true artist - painting a vivid picture with her words, that gives you the feeling that you could just step right in.

    It's a wonderful read.

    I feel it is only fair to warn you that your time may be in danger with this book. Once you pick it up, you will not want to put it down.

    The story flows so flawlessly, it rushes by your eyes and you will completely lose track of how long you've been reading.

    The idea of converting to the Amish faith has become something of a phenomenon among readers and writers alike. And it has become increasingly difficult to present a new take on the idea or a story that doesn't sound like a mirror image of every other one already out there.

    But Amy Lillard has succeeded there. Her story is definitely original. Her characters are individual and her voice is intriguing.

    She has an exceptional talent for writing a view of the Amish community through the eyes of a pampered Englisher and writing the view of that same Englisher through the eyes of a somewhat surly Amish man.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story about life, loss and love.

    Whether you enjoy Amish fiction or just Christian fiction, this story will appeal because there is enough of both worlds within the pages.

    I can't wait to move on to the next book in the series and I hope we have many more series from Amy Lillard to look forward to.

    From start to finish I LOVED this book. You simply will not want to put it down. This a beautiful story of love, hope and healing. Amy deserves an award for being able to blend the two cultures and get such a perfect balance. I really admired Avery's character. Her selflessness despite being born into wealth. There was nothing spoilt about her but instead she loving embraced everyone in the Amish community. It was with sadness that I came to the end of this wonderful book. A great big WOW! To the author. I highly recommend this book.

    LOVE this book!!! Saving Gideon is filled with wonderful, spunky, kind, courageous, strong, and lovable characters. Amy has written a story that is simply beautiful. From the depths of guilt and pain to the heights of forgiveness and love, Saving Gideon takes you on a journey that is sweet and satisfying. I really enjoyed the change of events from the livestock to be raised by Gideon to the way Avery takes to the Amish life. There are also two other things I really loved! One is the dictionary in the back. While I have read a lot of Amish books to the point of being able to translate Pen. Dutch enough to not have to use these dictionaries any more; I still love them! They are great when you just aren't sure if a word means what you think it means, and for beginning Amish readers (and very considerate I might add). And secondly I LOVE LOVE LOVE the recipes!!! I have long wanted to try Shoofly Pie and after Saving Gideon I am going to!!! The pace is wonderful, not too slow but not too fast, and the times of faith and humility are lovely. If you are looking for a book that shows the dynamics of the Amish family and community, that teaches you God's ways and knowledge and ours can be something completely different, and that coming back from grief is possible this is the book for you! :) All and all a fabulous Amish read!!! :) I've already started the sequel! ;)

    There are many songs that can be wonderfully paired with Saving Gideon. Here are some of the ones I think go: (This one is right out of the book! :))"Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss) [From Mermaids]" by The Hollywood Session Group,

    "Hello (Album Version)" by Lionel Richie,

    "Worn" by Tenth Avenue North,

    and finally, while the songs above have something to do with this book, there is really just one song that I think fully encompasses all of what Saving Gideon is.

    "God gave me you" by Blake Shelton it is an excellent fit!

    Exodus 14:14
