The Bishop’s Son By Kelly Irvin was a good book to read. I have lots of Amish fiction books than this book was one of the better ones that I have read. I have always loved to read these book so when I saw this book on BookLook I knew I had to requested and check it out. I am so glad that I did because this is an amazing author who was able to make me feel like I was there with the characters and I also was able to understand why they made the choices that they did. I enjoyed everything about this book and I can’t wait to check out the others books in this series as well as the other books that she has read. If you love Amish fiction I would for sure recommend this book to you. If you have read it what did you think about the story?
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?
