The Bishop's Son Review


My thoughts:

A great story from Kelly Irvin. While this book is part of a series, it totally can stand alone. Reading book one of the series, would acquaint you with the main characters, but it isn't necessary. I really enjoyed the path this book took, it was very unexpected for me. Set in the dry countryside, the Beeville, Amish community struggles to stay afloat. Making a living in the dry Texas countryside is hard, and to help her family Leila Lantz is allowed to work at an English daycare center. Life changes more everyday for her. Torn between two cousins, which one will she choose?
A great story, that you will enjoy 4.5 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.

About the Book:
Two men offer Leila two very different futures. Will she choose with her heart or with her faith?
Leila Lantz has been in love with Jesse Glick from the day she first saw him at his father’s store, but she can’t make sense of his intentions. One day he wants to come courting, the next he seems to be putting distance between them.
Jesse may be the bishop’s son, but his faith has been wavering of late. If he is so unsure, is it fair to give Leila false hope for a future he doubts he can provide?
Then there’s Will, Jesse’s cousin. He has been trying to keep his feelings for Leila a secret, but he also knows Jesse is wrestling with his faith. Would declaring his feelings for Leila be in her best interest or simply serving his own selfish desires?
Leila knows she can choose Will and be secure in her own future. But when her heart speaks, it’s Jesse’s name she hears. When will God make His will known to her? Could leaving everything she knows—even her own faith—be a part of God’s plan?
