English River serves as a stand-alone novel, but its much more satisfying to follow Lenny and his family throughout the entire series. Nye wastes no time jumping into this third novel[...]its easy to simply follow Lenny and his dog Russell, his loyal sidekick, as they navigate the choppy waters of growing up and falling in love.

Lenny has moved in with his aunt and uncle to help them through the harvest. Lenny's Uncle Noey has a horse farm and they have no children to help them with it. Aunt Ruth has hinted to Lenny that Uncle Noey needs help. Lenny likes being on the farm, but there is a lot of work. If he were to return to his English life in the city, he would not be working so hard.
Lenny has met Leah and they have developed a friendship. When Lenny goes back to the city to visit his parents, Leah and her sister follow. They say they are turning English to be with Lenny and his friend who went to the city earlier. When Lenny announces that he is going back to Noey and Ruth's farm and that he is becoming Amish, the three go back with him
Having not read the first two stories in this series, I found the beginning moving rather slow until I caught up. The story is one of a close knit community of people who care about each other. The part in the story that stands out for me is the struggle that Lenny goes through deciding if he wants to become Amish, with all the hard work and the rules. The part in the story that surprises me is when Lenny visits with the English minister. I was really surprised by the thoughts the minister has about the Amish.
I enjoyed reading this story and plan to series in order. This book is such a good book about caring for others and helping them. I think anyone that enjoys reading Amish stories will enjoy this story.
I received a copy of this book from Book Crash. I have chosen to write this honest review.
