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?

    Saving Gideon was a book of a 3 part series by Amy Lillard. It was great. I have now read 2 of the books of this series and definitely want to read the one I haven't read yet. although this is can be a stand alone book, as well.

    This story of heartache for both parties defined how together they restored the direction of both their lives and helped each other to gain back the trust and happiness both had lost.

    I really enjoy Amy Lillard's Amish books. She really seems to have a definite connection with the ideals and the shortcomings of human nature and the need to find God in each of our lives.

    The storyline was unique and interesting. The book held my attention and I had a hard time putting it down. I will continue reading books by this author. She is GOOD.

    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.
