The Bishop's Son By Kelly Irvin

Two men offer Leila two very different futures. Will she choose with her heart or with her faith?
Leila Lantz has been in love with Jesse Glick from the day she first saw him at his father’s store, but she can’t make sense of his intentions. One day he wants to come courting, the next he seems to be putting distance between them.
Jesse may be the bishop’s son, but his faith has been wavering of late. If he is so unsure, is it fair to give Leila false hope for a future he doubts he can provide?
Then there’s Will, Jesse’s cousin. He has been trying to keep his feelings for Leila a secret, but he also knows Jesse is wrestling with his faith. Would declaring his feelings for Leila be in her best interest or simply serving his own selfish desires?
Leila knows she can choose Will and be secure in her own future. But when her heart speaks, it’s Jesse’s name she hears. When will God make His will known to her? Could leaving everything she knows—even her own faith—be a part of God’s plan?

Ready to go back to Bee County Texas ? It was nice to get to reminisce with some old characters from book one in the series in this book. As well as get to meet new ones.
It was one of the books that could be a stand alone but you won't want to miss book one The Beekeeper's Son.
Looking for a good Amish love story, you might have found it.
I liked the characters old and new. In this 4 star book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
