Author Bio

Mary Ellis is the bestselling author of many books, including A Widow's Hope, An Amish Family Reunion, and Living in Harmony. She and her husband live in central Ohio, where they try to live a simpler style of life.

ChristianBookPreviews.com

The Way to a Man’s Heart by Mary Ellis is an Amish love story about a girl, Leah, who is trying to make something of herself, yet is facing the heartache of relationships with young men. This entire novel exhibits biblical principles, but the essence of the story can be capsulated in 1Corinthians 13:13, which says, “There are three things that will endure: faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love.” Throughout the book, Leah tires to establish her new baking business, but she ends up meeting a mysterious young man with a tragic past. Her emotions range from being ecstatic to being curious to being angry.

The author, Ellis, has the ability to put her readers in the middle of the action, while also providing a sense of the Amish culture. The quality and intensity of the characters could have been stronger, however, because the dialogue between characters lacks much in the way of passion, energy or intensity. Probably the most memorable scene in the novel is when a suitor named Steven tries to convince Leah to eat nachos. She doesn’t want them, though. So, when Daniel, another guy who likes Leah, insists she doesn’t want them, they end up in Steven’s lap. Steven then punches Daniel in the nose and Daniel punches Steven back. I thought that scene was intense and somewhat repulsive, but Leah comes away feeling flattered that two fellows were fighting over her. It winds up being somewhat comedic.

Leah is trying to live her life to the fullest, but at her age that is hard to do because boys get in the way. She has several fellows trying to court her. However, one man in particular, Jonah Byler, stands out. April, another female central character, is dealing with trying to set up a new restaurant, but drowning in financial debt. Jonah Byler has a past that he can’t forget and a mysterious aura that makes Leah attracted to him. Leah decides to go for Jonah. April eventually blames Leah for all the fraud April commits in trying to be successful against the odds. However, her lies get out of control and she is seen for the person she really is.

Leah is weak at times because she tends to have a bit of a temper. However, she is pragmatic and knows what she wants and goes after it. She is shy and curious at the same time. Leah is a three-dimensional and selfless character with a forgiving nature. When events happen that aren’t particularly pleasant, her strong belief system comes in handy.

This book was more interesting than I expected it to be, especially with the realism Ellis weaves into her plot. What I really gained from it, though, was insight into the Amish culture. This book gives honest and respectful opinions of the Amish heritage, including the addition of words that aren’t used in everyday English. Young females who are trying to fit into the dual worlds of love and career should enjoy reading this book. – Salisha Hill, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This is an enjoyable story and ends well, inspite of Leah having been made to look bad because of her business partner failing to make good decisions in the restaurant operation.

    I really enjoyed this book. This was the first fiction book I have read in years, and it has gotten me interested in reading again. The parallels between my own circumstances and the ones in this book brought back some really good memories of me and my husband in our dating stage. It was very inspiring. If you like romantic stories that are not too mushy and that involve good Christian principles incorporated into everyday life, this book is for you.

    I absoutely love all of Mary Ellis's books and with this being book #3 I could hardly wait to get my hands on it, but I was really disappointed . It was a super slow read and one that I found I could hardly wait just to finish it. Yes, the diner theme was a bit different however it just seemed to drag on. Not the type of writting you would expect from Ms. Ellis.
