Bestselling Amish fiction author Jerry S. Eicher (nearly half a million copies sold) returns with the first book in another of his delightful and compelling series.
Here is the touching story of an awakening young Amish girl, Katie Raber, who finds she wants more from life than to be known as simply "Emma Raber's daughter."
Emma has refused to remarry since Katie's daett died soon after she was born. And in an effort to keep Katie home, Emma has forbidden her from participating in the rumspringa tradition.
When widower Jesse Mast calls for Mamm's hand in marriage, Katie hopes to move into a new phase of life and leave the old "Emma Raber's daughter" behind. But Emma is having none of it, and Katie must consider abandoning all hope of ever changing her mamm's bitterness or of ever having popular Ben Yoder notice her. Out of sheer frustration, she begins attending nearby Mennonite youth gatherings.
Sparks fly when Jesse's children object fiercely to the attentions their daett is paying to Emma Raber. And widowed Ruth Hochstetler makes her own move for Jesse Mast's hand.
Book one in the Emma Raber's Daughter series.

Jerry is my favorite male Amish author. He has never wrote a book that I did not love.
He can tell an Amish love story like no other.
He never writes the same thing like most Amish authors do. His stories tug at the heart strings and really have a unique twist, now maybe that is because of his Amish background but who better to tell you a story about the Amish than an ex-amish gentlemen himself.
If you have not read a book by Jerry now is a good time to pick up a copy. This is the first book in his new series Emma Raber's Daughter.
I highly recommend this 5 star book.
