Miriam's Secret By Jerry Eicher

Bestselling author Jerry S. Eicher (more than 600,000 books sold) brings new characters and surprising challenges to lovers of Amish fiction in the Land of Promise series.
In this first book, Miriam Yoder has a secret. Her compassionate care for Amos Bland during his last days resulted in her receiving a large inheritance. When Ivan Mast indicates his intentions at romance, Miriam suspects he's discovered her hidden wealth and has plans that aren't inspired by his love for her.
Seeking a fresh start where no one knows her, Miriam accepts a teaching position in faraway Oklahoma where she meets Wayne Yutzy, a local greenhouse employee. His interest in her seems genuine and when he proposes, Miriam accepts. Happiness surely awaits the newly engaged couple....or does it?

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.

Who has ever read a book by Jerry and not loved it, none of the avid readers I know. He was Amish himself so he knows what he's writing about.
You have NEVER read an Amish Book with the secret Miriam's carrying around.
You are going to fall in love with Wayne and Miriam you will root for them just as I did I'm sure.
I love the twists in the story, the storyline was fresh and fun.
Shirley was one you have to wonder about she is one of those characters you love to hate and hate to love. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in the series A Blessing for Miriam.
This series Land of Promise is one you don't want to miss.
I gave this book 5 stars read it in one night. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
