Following Your Heart
Title: FOLLOWING YOUR HEART
Author: Jerry S. Eicher
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
Susan Hostetler returns to her Amish roots bringing along single mom, Teresa Long and her newborn son Samuel. Teresa has hopes of raising her son in the Amish faith. Teresa is really down on herself and seems to think she deserves the bad things in life—even a potential marriage to an elderly man. Anything, to give her son a good Amish life.
Susan’s parents are glad Susan returned and welcoming to Teresa, but not everyone is. In fact, the Deacon is very unhappy about Terese being in the community and forbids her to even attend church services.
What is a girl to do when she wants an Amish life—for her and her son? And what about Susan? Is she home for good—or will she return to the Englisha world she left the Amish for?
FOLLOWING YOUR HEART is the second book in Mr. Eicher’s Fields of Home series. I was glad to read more about Susan and her friend Teresa that we were introduced to in Missing Your Smile. Readers will want to read the books in order, as they are a continuing story and not stand-alone.
I’ve enjoyed reading this series of Mr. Eicher’s book and can’t wait for the next book in this series When Love Grows, and the continuing story of Susan. Fans of Amish fiction will enjoy this. $12.99. 271 pages.
