A Blessing for Miriam By Jerry Eicher

In the second book of bestselling author Jerry S. Eicher's new Land of Promise series, Miriam Yoder is looking forward to her wedding day with Wayne Yutzy. But when beautiful Esther Swartz arrives to care for her ailing grandmother, Miriam is wary of Wayne's past relationship with Esther.
When storms rip through the small Amish community in Oklahoma, Miriam's daett arrives to help in the rebuilding efforts. Under pressure from Miriam's daett the relationship with Wayne is upended, leaving Miriam to wonder if she must now build her new life as a single Amish woman.

Jerry Eicher taught for two terms in Amish and Mennonite schools in Ohio and Illinois. He writes of his experience growing up Amish in his memoir My Amish Childhood. Jerry has been involved in church renewal, preaching, and teaching Bible studies. He lives with his wife, Tina, and their four children in Virginia.

I was so sad by this second book in the Land of Promise series. I did not see half the stuff coming my way as I was reading never before has an Amish genre writer written anything like this. I was hit hard.
It is not what you expect to read in one of Jerry's books.
Oh but you will not be able to put the book down just take some tissues with you where ever you go to read it.
I really dislike Miriam's father he is always sticking his nose where he has no business sticking it.
Miriam is so easy to love as is her Aunt and Uncle. When tragedy stuck Miriam and her family she was still my favorite character and I could not stop reading I had to find out what was going to happen next.
I gave this book 5 stars and I highly recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
