I still have the tablet. The words written in red. A big exclamation mark following the Good.
The teacher’s name was Glen Hochstetler. God bless his heart. I know now he could have rebuked me for breaking the rules, dashed my joy into the hard ground. But he didn’t. He praised me, not just in class but in front of the whole one-room schoolhouse.
This mark--of doing what I’m not supposed to do--still follows me. I have written love stories. All while the Christian community is firmly convinced that men cannot understand women.
Sorry. I didn’t mean to break the rules. But I still like it when people mark my paper Very Good. Taken from http://www.eicherjerry.com/
This is the first book in Jerry S. Eicher's new series "Fields Of Home" . I find this book very interesting about the AMish life and Jerry can tell it as no other because he grew up Amish. Susan Hostetler left her home after she broke up with her boyfriend Thomas Stoll. She wanted to get a taste of the Englisha life so she moved to Asbury Park, New Jersey. She begins to live the full English life and ever bought a car and learned to drive. Her parents were so sad and upset about her moving away and leaving the Amish life she grew up in.
Susan met a young unmarried woman that was expecting a baby and wanted her baby to be adopted by an Amish family. When she returns home to help find a family for the baby, she also felt led to move back home and to her Amish way of life. There was also the young man Thoman still waiting for her, so she was very comfused if about wheather she wanted to return back to the Englisha way of life or just stay where she really belonged.
Very interesting book as all of Jerry's are. Thanks so much to Harvest House Publisher and Jerry S. Eicher for sending me this me to read and I chose to post this review.
