Eventide by Shelley Shepard Gary was a great book. This is the 3rd and final book in the series and I have to say that I am sad to see the series come to an end. I did review the second book and if you want to check out that review click here. I loved the characters and the overall storyline of this series. I am finding that I really love Shelley’s writing and I can’t wait to check out more books by her. Anyways lets get back to this book. This book focus on Elise and her struggles with getting her family to let her live her life and also with trying to find someone to love her even though she is losing her eyesight. I loved the ending and I was so happy for her and how things worked out. I loved everything about this book and I can’t wait to check out other books by her in the future.
A young Amish woman harbors a difficult secret. Does she dare share the truth with the man she hopes to marry?
Elsie Keim doesn’t want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She’s still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman-all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoconus and is slowly going blind.
Elsie knows there’s much more to her than her disease. That’s why when a new neighbor, Landon Troyer, shows some interest in her, she doesn’t want anything to scare him away . . . even if it means keeping her condition a secret.
Landon is ready to start a new life and feels like Elsie may just be the right woman to start it with. But when Roman steps in and shares the truth about Elsie’s illness, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. How could he keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie?
