Review of Seeing Your Face Again 

The Beiler Sisters series--Book 2

by Jerry Eicher

20262916

Debbie Watson is a new convert to the Amish faith and still learning the plain ways of the community in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. She has already attracted two suitors: the insecure but lovable farmer, Alvin Knepp, and the brash Paul Wagler who reminds Debbie of the boyfriend she happily left behind in the Englisha world. When Alvin leaves the community for the big city, Debbie is crushed. Though her heart is with Alvin, she considers Paul's continued interest in her. Should she simply give in and marry Paul....or wait to see if Alvin comes home?

Seeing Your Face Again is another Amish fiction treat you'll love. With Jerry Eicher's sales at more than half a million books, his Amish fiction fans continue to wait eagerly for his next heart-felt story, brimming with the authenticity he brings from his own Amish background. Book 2 in The Beiler Sisters series

MY REVIEW:   Quoted from Chapter Two of Seeing Your Face Again:    Debbie stood upright so fast her head spun.  "I'm not interested in Paul, Emery!"
     Emery cleared his throat.  "I think you're showing the very spunk Paul finds so attractive.  What's wrong with him, anyway?"
     Your sister's in love with him for one thing, Debbie thought, but she didn't say it aloud.   Ida didn't want her secret spilled to the world.  And Emery probably knew anyway and was just as convinced the case was hopeless as she did.
     "See?" he teased.  "You're speechless.  There's not one gut reason Paul Wagler shouldn't be arriving here every Sunday evening for sweet visits with you." 
      Whew!   As you can see, there is a great deal of conflict in this book by Jerry Eicher.   Debbie is Englisha and moves to the home of the bishop of the Amish church to become Amish while her friend, Lois (daughter of the same bishop) wants to leave the Amish faith to become Englisha.  Paul Wagler is pursuing Debbie and she wants Alvin Knepp, but Alvin has left home and moved to the Englisha world and no one knows why.   
      I won't spoil the story for readers, but just wanted to give a "tease".   This book kept me on my toes and I could hardly wait to get a moment to sit with my kindle and read more!   I rate this 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers.   
I received a free kindle version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
