Publisher's Description

New from bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, The Amish Groom (Book 1 in The Men of Lancaster County series) explores the men of an Amish community in Lancaster County, how their Amish beliefs play out in their unique roles, and the women who change their lives.

Born to an ex-Amish mother and an Englisch father, 23-year-old Tyler Anderson was raised as a military kid until the age of 6, when his mom passed away. His dad, shipping off to yet another overseas post, placed Tyler in the care of his Amish grandparents, an arrangement that was supposed to be temporary. It lasted a lifetime.

Rachel Hoeck is the young woman waiting for Tyler's proposal. She senses that though he loves her and wishes to make a commitment to her and his Amish beliefs, part of him still wonders whether an Amish lifestyle is truly for him.

When an opportunity to connect with his father unexpectedly arises, a visit to California causes Tyler to question everything, including a future with Rachel. Will the new girl in his life, Lark, cause him to remain in the Englisch world? Or will he choose to be an Amish groom after all?

A poignant novel of hoping for romance and searching for identity, set in a beloved Amish community.

    What an absorbing story! And, honestly, I'm gobsmacked over how quickly I got lost in it because it is told entirely from Tyler's perspective, In first person point of view no less. And you know what? That wouldn't be my first pick for any kind of novel but it totally worked for this one. I was on tenterhooks the whole read, feeling the pressure right along with Tyler as he struggled for answers.

    This story explores the perils and rewards of being in relationship. Tyler impressed me from the very beginning. Honest about the issues he is wrestling with, he seeks counsel and then steps out in faith. He feels like he is caught between two worlds. When he's living Amish he feels something tugging him outside of the close knit community. When he's visiting his dad he yearns for the simplicity of the Amish life he was raised in. His journey towards self-discovery completely captivated me. And it's punctuated with wry observations on our fast-paced 21st century lifestyle. Riveting from start to finish.

    I love this series, especially how the author makes each book complete in itself but familiar characters run thru the background. This book had a fascinating intrigue into a character's background. I was eager to finish the story but sad to reach the end.

    I was not given the book free to review.

    I really enjoyed the four previous "The Amish" novels,espc the mystery associated with each one.

    I was quite anxious to read the start of "The Men" series.

    I wish the authors would have taken the ending in a different direction.

    I realized the little key had something to do with the eventual mystery.,but it took forever to begin the mystery and then solved it quite rapidly.

    The Amish stories are flooding the market and have become so predictable,in their endings.

    To me this was not a new take on the Amish/Englisher conflicts even from a guys point of view.

    Needless to say this was not my favorite.

    I would recommend it to a friend if they had not read many "Amish" novels.

    SUMMARY:

    Tyler Anderson has grown up Amish yet feels a pull on his heart that causes him to feel unsettled. Explaining his concerns to his intended, Rachel, as well as his grandparents who raised him, Tyler prays for a sign which may show him where he belongs_either in the Amish life or the Englisch world. The Amish Groom is the first book in The Men of Lancaster County series.

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Both new authors for me, I am wondering how I missed them. As a reader of Amish fiction, I was intrigued to find an Amish novel written from a different point of view- that of a man's. Though not sure what to expect, this story just flowed naturally through different struggles, faith, family bonds, confusion, indecision and following the heart. Along with the storyline, the writing was so well done, I often had a hard time finding a spot in which to stop reading. (I happened to be reading a book on Amish faith concurrently with this novel and found The Amish Groom to be closely on track with the Amish beliefs/ ways of life_something I appreciated.) I definitely plan on reading the next book in this series!

    RATING:

    4.5 (out of 5) pennies
