As an accomplished author, Mary Ellis knows the ins and outs of writing a really good book. An Amish Family Reunion exemplifies this well.
Phoebe Miller is an artist at heart, and shy. She refuses to attend the singings, and such that are normal for Amish youth.With one exception. She manages to talk her father into a trip to Niagara Falls. On this trip, she meets Eli Riehl, a young Amish man who spins an exceptional story. Together they plan a business venture to produce a book with Eli’s story and Phoebe’s illustrations.
Somewhere along the way, Eli and Phoebe grow to love one another. But when tragedy strikes on the Riehl farm, Eli has to give up his dream and care for the family’s farm. He’s not willing, however, to give up on Phoebe. As shy as she, he takes a step beyond his comfort zone and pursues her at every opportunity.
This book is preceded by several others: A Widow’s Hope, Never Far From Home, and The Way to a Man’s Heart. It is not necessary, however, to have read these in order to enjoy An Amish Family Reunion.
I enjoyed this novel a great deal, as I had the others that I have read by Ms. Ellis. I look forward to more books from her in the future.
