amish promisesLeslie Gould’s new book Amish Promises begins with the family of injured veteran Joel Beck, his wife, Shani and son arriving in Lancaster County so he can heal from his wounds.

Joel has PTSD, Shani is pregnant with their second child. It seems the stresses are tearing their marriage apart.

Their nearest neighbors, the Lehman’s are Amish. Joel is not sure this is going to work, nor is neighbor Tim.

A romance ensues with Joel’s friend Charlie and Tim’s sister Eve, both fighting their attraction on the basis of their differing religions.

Accidents and storms take place, making both families learn acceptance, and mutual trust.

The characters are well developed and the plot is something that night happen these days.

I enjoyed the book, and would recommend it to others. Easily gets a four star rating!
