The Bachelor Plain City Peace #2

In this seuel to The Bargain Betsie Troyer is back home in her Amish community where she knows she belongs free from the confusing Englisher way of life She and Charley Yoder have made promises to each other and her life is back on track until Gerald Sullivan shows up with his young daughter asking for Betsie's help He’s on his way to find his estranged wife and begs Betsie to take young Sheila in When she agrees Betsie's carefully planned life is shaken up. This is the second book in the Plain City Peace series It is wonderful There seems to be a bit of controversy in the Amish and Mennonite churches during this time period I keep hoping that Betsies parents will come home or convince her to move Betsie thinks she is in love with Charley or is she really in love with Michael You will want to read The Bargain before reading this book so you know what is going on I am looking forward to the next book to see how this all ends I can t wait I received this book from book funorg for a fair and honest opinion

review The Bachelor Plain City Peace #2

Again Sheila's newfound faith is troubling to Charley and his attraction to another girl is beginning to be a problem But how can Betsie confront him when she is still trying to confront her own feelings about Sheila's brother Michael Keeping the peace between the Amish man she's always loved a twelve year old Englisher girl and a draft dodging hippie is than she ever thought she’d have to deal with in her simple orderly life Still Betsie is convinced she. Seventeen old Betsie Troyer and her teenage brother and sister Abijah and Sadie are left to fend for themselves when their parents leave the Amish faith and move away They are faced with the shame of their parent s shunning because they accepted Christ as their Savior The children pray fervently that their parents will see the error of their ways and return In the mean time they must carry on with Betsy trying to be both father and mother to her siblings The pressure she faces is incredibleCharley Betsie s intended beau since childhood comes freuently to assist with the chores and repairs that reuire a man He seems sincerely devoted in helping her but is he Michael an Englisher friend of many years who has moved away continues to write her She treasures his friendship as he truly understands her To add to her already heavy load a man she has worked for in the past leaves his 12 year old daughter Shelia to stay with the Troyers He is leaving town to try and bring his wife back that has left them This creates conflict not only with her siblings but also with her church and Charley A shocking tragedy reveals who really has Betsie s best interest at heartJust when I thought no one could come up with an Amish novel with a uniue storyline Ms Reed has managed to Most of the time it is the youth leaving the church for the world but this time it is the parents I was shocked and upset with her parents for abandoning their children Especially with all the responsibilities that are a part of an Amish householdThe story was made even interesting by all the details of the situations the author so vividly describes So much so in fact I felt pressure with all Betsie was dealing with She was a brave and dedicated young woman but there were so many decisions that she needed her parent s wisdom for All in all she does an incredible jobThe characters were interesting I enjoyed Shelia Her youthful innocence candidness and strong childlike Christian faith unaffected by others was delightful Psalm 82 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength aptly describes this little lady As the story progresses the integrity and motives of each individual was gradually revealed I liked this because it added suspense and excitement to the plot I was inspired by Betsie s taking every problem and decision to the Lord in prayer She continued trusting and asking even though circumstances seemed unchanged Through her trials she begins making her own choices separate from the opinions of other and the rules of her culture I did not read the previous book but I feel this one stood alone I look forward to reading it and the 3rd seuel to come in 2016 Well written entertaining and hard to put downI received this book free from the publisher through Kregel Publications which reuires an honest though not necessarily positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own
