I just fell in love with this book. Visiting Wells Landing is like a world that has peace and warmth in it, like no other. True the Amish have some of the same problems that the regular English have, but the Amish have differences that make you wonder if you wouldn't want to sit on their front porch drinking lemonade.
The basis of the story could be anywhere. It's where two young ones are in love and one. Luke Lambright decides to leave and go live with the English.
Emily is heartbroken. She then meets an Amish man who is a little older than her. Elam has been in love with Emily for years. The bishop is Emily's father and likes Elam but not Luke. One thing I really loved was how everyone worked and played with Elam's father who had been in a bad accident. He slowly came out into the world and one of the first things he liked was the color purple.
Emily has a huge decision to make. Luke has come back to get Emily but will she leave her Amish life and the man she is beginning to love?
If you read this book, you won't be disappointed. There is a love brewing that won't cool down. But is it between Emily and Elam or Emily and Luke?
Return to Wells Landing, the close-knit Amish community in Oklahoma, where a hopeful young woman struggles to find true love while staying true to her faith. . .
Emily Ebersol is the bishop's daughter, and everyone--including Emily--assumes she'll marry a faithful Amish man and live out her days within the community. But her childhood sweetheart, Luke Lambright, fell in love with racing cars during his rumspringa and decided to leave Wells Landing. Emily prays for his return, but as the months go by, she begins spending time with another young man--a man who may not be as exciting as Luke, but perhaps he's exactly what she needs. . .
Elam Rhiel knows that Emily has always been in love with Luke--but he is certain he could be the loyal, steady husband Emily deserves. Then, just as Emily begins to fall for him, Luke returns and complicates her feelings. Now, they all must learn that the greatest love requires the greatest sacrifice. . .
