FINALLY A SWEET LOVE STORY THAT HAS A TRUE ENDING


For those of you who have read my reviews you know I'm a relatively voracious reader/reviewer of books of various genres. And while I especially love reading romances, even those hot steamy romances where I can truly fantasize about being in the shoes of the female protagonists, I love sitting down in a recliner, nuzzling up with a sweet love story without any sex scenes in my hands, and simply reading it to my heart's enjoyment.

In "Amish Love of a Lifetime" the author, Sadie Palmer, gives us precisely that, a love story of two endearing individuals, Rebecca Bieler and Isaac Schuster, which spans the 73 years of their lives. It starts with a puppy love kind of a close relationship when they were 3 and 4 years old; where she accepted him despite and didn't tease him because of his having a lisp, which he appreciated.

All this had been too good for these two as Isaac's parents moved miles away to Ohio from Lancaster, PA, because his uncle got sick, leaving him depressed. When he got old enough he made the decision to move back in the hopes of courting Rebecca, a decision which winds up distressingd his parents no end.

The thing is Rebecca had always hoped their relationship even at a young age would turn out to be something more substantial, like marriage. And was quite pleased when she saw his return; hoping he'd start the courting process, starting with the simplistic buggy rides alone with each other; a courting process which the rest of the population here had until the beginning of the 20th century, a courting process which is far more beautiful and simplistic than the haphazard, harried ones we have today.

If Isaac does what she hopes he will, her dreams of having a HEA with him will become a pleasing reality; if he doesn't their relationship could easily turn into something else, and during this time her faith will be continuously tested.

In the end, the author's experience living close to the Amish community in Holmes County, Ohio, gives her readers a beautiful, realistic inside glimpse of what the lives of Rebecca and Isaac had become with their marriage, having children and grandchildren, along with all the trials and tribulations the Amish lifestyle might give a typical married couple.

I'm glad and sadden that Ms. Palmer decided to take us through their lives, until the day Rebecca dies and Isaac is left sadly left alone, without the love of his lifetime by his side. An ending which we a seldom, if ever allow to see, once the couple in the HEA stories we love to read, get married and we're left wondering what happens next in their lives.

For having given me, and her readers, a sweet love story without a single sex scene we're usually accustomed in reading in many HEA stories I'm giving Ms. Palmer and "Amish Love of a Lifetime" 5 STARS.
