Return to Wells Landing, the close-knit Amish community in Oklahoma, where a hopeful young woman struggles to find true love while staying true to her faith. . .
Emily Ebersol is the bishop's daughter, and everyone--including Emily--assumes she'll marry a faithful Amish man and live out her days within the community. But her childhood sweetheart, Luke Lambright, fell in love with racing cars during his rumspringa and decided to leave Wells Landing. Emily prays for his return, but as the months go by, she begins spending time with another young man--a man who may not be as exciting as Luke, but perhaps he's exactly what she needs. . .
Elam Rhiel knows that Emily has always been in love with Luke--but he is certain he could be the loyal, steady husband Emily deserves. Then, just as Emily begins to fall for him, Luke returns and complicates her feelings. Now, they all must learn that the greatest love requires the greatest sacrifice.
About The Author
I just enjoyed my second visit in Wells Landing, and can’t wait and hope for another visit here. This story could be in any culture, where your love of many years decides to leave and find himself, this just happens to be an Amish community.
Emily Ebersol has been love with Luke Lambright for as long as she can remember, when he decided he needed to go English, she is devastated, and although she cannot leave her life and family, keeps hoping that Luke will return. We then meet an Amish man a few years older than Emily that has been in love with her for as long as he can remember. Is this the chance that he has been hoping for? Emily’s father is the Bishop and doesn’t approve of Luke, even more so now, and he likes Elam Rhiel.
As we live among the Amish in this community I loved the interactions between Emily and Elam’s father James. Such caring and love here, and they sure loved the color purple, and the purple party, so very sweet.
In the end will Emily agree to leave with Luke who has come back to get her, or will her faith be strong enough, and she be mature enough to stay and maybe find a new love? You won’t regret reading this one, as it is awesome.
