His Love Endures Forever
This is far from your typical Amish fiction story.
Danielle is an 18 year old Englischer who finds herself in love with Matthew Lapp, a young Amish man with plans to leave the faith as well as Colorado. When Danielle finds herself pregnant, Matthew doesn’t want anything to do with her or the baby. He says he never really loved her and this wasn’t in his plans, he packs his bags and leaves the community he grew up in hoping to find something better in the Englisch world.
When Danielle begins to think her world is falling apart her best friend Levi, another Amish young man, steps up and takes on the responsibilities Matthew Lapp left behind. Though none of these events were in anyone’s plans, God works in mysterious ways through the situations and a beautiful love story develops.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought I was getting myself into another Amish fiction novel, but this was so much more than that. While it is set in an Amish community and there are some obvious connections to the faith, the story shows how the Amish and Englisch worlds interact and what would happen if the two intertwined. The love story was beautiful, it showed how one sometimes has to make huge sacrifices for those they love. I hope I get to catch up with these characters again in other books from this series.
