Product Description

Betsie Troyer is back home in her Amish community where she knows she belongs, free from the confusing Englisher way of life. She and Charley Yoder have made promises to each other, and her life is back on track--until Gerald Sullivan shows up with his young daughter, asking for Betsie's help. He?Z"s on his way to find his estranged wife, and begs Betsie to take young Sheila in.

When she agrees, Betsie's carefully planned life is shaken up again. Sheila's newfound faith is troubling to Charley--and his attraction to another girl is beginning to be a problem. But how can Betsie confront him when she is still trying to confront her own feelings about Sheila's brother, Michael? Keeping the peace between the Amish man she's always loved, a twelve-year-old Englisher girl, and a draft-dodging hippie is more than she ever thought she?Z"d have to deal with in her simple, orderly life. Still, Betsie is convinced she can keep things from falling apart completely.

Then during her best friend's wedding, tragedy strikes and her world is upended. She has to make a decision: does she love Charley or Michael . . . or is she craving a deeper love that only God can give?

    I love to read Amish fictional books. Curious about how they live, their lifestyle and faith. I wish I could have read The Bargain the first book in this series before reading The Bachelor but Stephanie's writing style gave me enough insight into the first book that I had no trouble getting into this story and the well developed characters. This story takes place in the 1970's.

    When Betsie Troyer's parents Fannie and Noah renounce their Amish faith to follow Christ they are shunned from the Amish community leaving Betsie, her sister Sadie and their brothers to run the family farm. Betsie is happy to be back in her Amish community after finishing her apprenticeship in the English world. However she is also being drawn back to the English world. Charley Yoder helps Betsie out on the farm. They make promises to each other about a future life together. Then there is the Englisher Michael a quirky draft dodger. Will it be Charley or Michael in her future?

    To add more to her already heavy load Betsie's English employer asks if she will look after his 12 year old daughter while he searches for his estranged wife. How can she do this? What will her church, her siblings and Charley think?

    A great read. I recommend this book and plan to read the first and third books in the Plain City Peace series.

    I received a free copy of his book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    This is the second book in the Plain City Peace series. It is wonderful. There seems to be a bit of controversy in the Amish and Mennonite churches during this time period. I keep hoping that Betsies parents will come home or convince her to move. Betsie thinks she is in love with Charley or is she really in love with Michael? You will want to read The Bargain before reading this book so you know what is going on. I am looking forward to the next book to see how this all ends. I can't wait. I received this book from book fun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    The Bachelor is Book Two in the Plain City Peace Series. I read the first book so I was able to understand and enjoy the characters. The book is able to be read as a stand alone but probably more enjoyable if read as a series. This concerns Betsy, an Amish girl who is taking care a the farm with her sister since her parents left. She is asked to help an Englisher and this displeases her Amish boyfriend. Their is humor, tears, faith and family found in this story. I enjoyed it and look forward to more works by this author.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This is book 2 in the Plain City Peace series. I have not read the first book and could keep up with what was going on in this one, however I would definitely recommend reading the first book (The Bargain) before this one. I feel there would be more meaning in this one with the history of the first. This is definitely a series, you will want the next book out soon to find out what happens.

    Betsie Troyer is forced to become mother and father to her family farm. When she is also asked to watch an 'English' girl her life is turned upside down. While she knows she should be thankful for Charley and his ever present help and opinion on her farm she can't quit thinking about the 'English' man Michael. Will she be able to find what her heart truly wants or will she do only what is expected even if they clash. Can she convince her parents to return to the Amish life? Betsie must face some hard circumstances, strict people, a loving little girl and hold to the Amish ways.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading good clean amish christian fiction (series). I was given a copy of this book from bookfun.org (The Book Club Network) for my honest opinion.

    A unique Amish tale!
    December 15, 2014

    The Bachelor is the second book in Stephanie Reeds Plain City Peace series. There were several references to events detailed in the first book, The Bargain, which I have not read. However, enough information was given, and I was able to follow the story. For a better understanding of the characters and storyline, I would recommend reading this series in order.

    Set against the backdrop of the turbulent 1970s, The Bachelor is a unique Amish tale. Betsie Troyer is a complex character and faces many challenges in her life. I felt compassion for this young woman and especially enjoyed her relationship with a young English girl left in her care. The romantic threads in this story were also interesting and I am eager to know where Betsies feelings will lead her. At the end of The Bachelor, unanswered questions linger and leave the reader in anticipation of the next book, The Bride.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through The Book Club Network. All thoughts expressed are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
