A Man of His Word
Title: A MAN OF HIS WORD
Author: Kathleen Fuller
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Moriah Miller has married the man she loves. Levi was her playmate growing up, and it seemed natural for them to grow up and marry. But on their four month anniversary, when Moriah plans big news—she’s having a baby—Levi springs even bigger news. He’s leaving her and the Amish. He found his life among outsiders.
Levi’s twin, Gabriel, goes after Levi, telling Levi that Moriah is expecting, but Levi says he had an affair with another woman, his boss’s daughter, and she is also expecting. He plans to give Moriah and her child up, permanently.
Gabriel has always loved Moriah, but since divorce wasn’t allowed among the people, Moriah will never be allowed to marry. All he can do is step in where his brother stepped out, and try to take the best care of Moriah and her child as he possibly can. Is there any hope for a brighter future?
A MAN OF HIS WORD is a great Amish story. I loved getting to know Moriah and the men in her life. There is also a secondary romance between Moriah’s brother, Tobias, and another young lady that was fun to watch.
Like most of America, I do enjoy Amish stories, and my favorite author has always been Beverly Lewis. However, Kathleen Fuller is definitely an author I’m going to read. Her books are moving up on my favorite Amish authors list. If you love Amish fiction, then keep Kathleen Fuller’s A MAN OF HIS WORD in mind. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $14.99. 288 pages.
