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?

    This was very different from most Amish books I've read. Avery was a daughter to a very rich man. Gideon was a wounded soul hiding from life after losing his wife and son. They meet when Avery is caught in a snow storm and crashes her car. Gideon finds her, unconscious, and rescues her. Their relationship develops over time with Avery staying at Gideon's house and learning all about Amish life. I was very impressed with her growth and adaptation of the Amish ways. She came to realize over time that she needed God and how the simpler life was much more meaningful than the rich girl life she had been leading. Gideon was brought out of his guilt and grief partly because of what Avery brought into his life. Over time though, Gideon realizes her former life is where she will eventually go back to and he needs to protect his already wounded heart. Will they go their separate ways and draw on what they have learned from each other? After all Amish going English is so much easier than English converting to Amish. This novel touched me in many ways. Had me contemplating my own life and how I could slow down and make changes to incorporate a simpler life for me and my family. It will stay with me for a very long time!

    Even though the author had sent me a paperback copy, I had previously purchased an ebook copy. I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is strictly my own.

Gideon Fisher blames himself for the death of his wife, Miriam and son, Jamie and has basically given up. Will the woman with grape gumdrop eyes help Gideon see life as worth living again or will Gideon help Avery (whom he calls Annie, after all being named after an address label just doesnt fit) find a purpose? Can two people from very different backgrounds discover common ground and will their families give them the freedom and support they need. Amish fiction lovers as well as Christian romance fiction lovers will want to check Saving Gideon out!

    Saving Gideon pulls on your heartstrings and doesn't let go! Gideon is barely making it through the day since his wife and son were killed during a storm. He has no interest in life or doing more than going through the motions until the night of a late season snow storm. A beautiful, young socialite crashes her little sports car very near Gideon's farm. She is injured and there is no one around to help. Being true to his Amish faith and ethics, Gideon brings the woman into his house to assess her injuries and allow her to get warm.

    Thus, a love story for the ages is set in motion. Avery Hamilton is tired of her shallow existence that revolves around money and finds living in the Amish community a wonderful respite. Gideon, much against his will, finds himself falling in love with her.

    A heart wrenching and heartwarming story that you won't want to miss. Ms. Lillard's characters are created to find their way into your soul and stay nestled there long after you finish "Saving Gideon".

    This review was written for Saving Gideon, Clover Ridge Series #1.
    I really enjoyed this book...it shows an Amish man who...even though he is totally devoted to his faith...family and community...as most of the Amish people are...but it changes for Gideon...when he loses a big piece of that...his family...his wife and child...he wants to get away...from everyone who is familiar to him...and this is not their way...the Amish way...but he just doesnt want to be around them...or anyone in fact...but what happens when a pretty Englischer woman comes into the picture...will he follow life again...with his heart leading??? I really enjoy all of Amy Lillard's books...I have said it before...her books always keep me wanting more...I can never put the book down until the end...so many times...I have read her book for a full 36-48 hours...just so I could read it to the end ...they keep my full attention...and they are so full of details...things you don't find in other books from the same genre...she knows what she is talking about...every step of the way...the Amish ways...and so much more!!! My favorite book genre is Amish Fiction/Romance...then next is Contemporary Romance...which I also came to enjoy because of Amy Lillard...because of a book called "Loving a Lawman"...which she wrote...another wonderful book... I absolutely cannot wait...to read her next book!!!
