5-Star Review of "Amish Sweethearts"

Review of Amish Sweethearts

by Leslie Gould


Can These Two Friends from Opposite Worlds Find Love? 

They've been best friends for years, but as high school ends, Zane Beck can't help but look at his Amish neighbor, Lila Lehman, with different eyes. Her controlling father sees only one future for Lila, though, and arranges for her to be courted by an upstanding young Amish man. When Zane sees the two together, his plans for the future crumble, and he impulsively enlists in the Army, following in his father's footsteps.

However, the passing of years and the distance between them isn't enough to halt their now hidden feelings for each other. If being together used to be difficult, it's now impossible, especially with the Amish opposed to war. Zane's service takes a dramatic turn when he's sent to Afghanistan. Being on the front line and the reality of taking a life has him questioning whether he can continue to serve or not. But all choices have consequences--both his and hers. With Lila preparing to marry another, will these one-time sweethearts ever find the life together that they both still long for?

MY REVIEW:  Amish Sweethearts is a wonderful book.   I was so caught up in Lila's dilemma.....loving an English soldier and being courted by a respectable Amish man that she doesn't love.   She doesn't want to leave her family and Amish faith.    Reuben represents a chance at a comfortable, safe, boring, loveless Amish life.  Zane thrills her heart and gives her sparks.   Which will she choose?  Will she choose either?  Maybe she will just resign herself to a life alone.   Readers will enjoy finding out as I did.
I rated this book 5 stars and I highly recommend it to lovers of Amish and Christian fiction.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
