Publisher's Summary

When Joel and Shani Beck arrive at their new home on Juneberry Lane in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, they're looking for peace. Joel's recently returned from Iraq and is recuperating, and Shani is just happy to have her family back together. They can't imagine any trouble with their Amish neighbors, the Lehmans, but things get off to a rocky start when their son accidently hurts Simon, one of the Lehman boys.

Timothy Lehman, a widower, is the family patriarch and demands the Beck boy work in Simon's place. Tensions escalate, but Shani can't help but be drawn to Eve Lehman, Timothy's sister, who runs the household. The two begin to form a strong friendship forged on faith and family, and things seem like they've quieted down - until Joel's single and handsome army friend, Charlie, catches Eve's eye. Suddenly life for both families becomes more complicated than any of them could have ever imagined.

The Most Awesome Book

This is a book everyone should listen to. It is realistic, and makes you think about situations in life. If I could give it a 10 star rating I would. Stina Nielsen is a reader that makes you feel that you are living the story.

Mixed feelings about ‘Amish Promises’

I really enjoyed the plot line and characters in Amish Promises—enough to allow me to hang in there until the novel’s end. What was difficult for me was the stiltedness in the telling. Since I was listening to the novel, rather than reading it, I couldn’t tell whether the difficulty was in the nature of the writing or the narration, or both.

In the end I was glad for the lessons learned, through the experiences and perspectives of the Amish and English. Unfortunately I can’t see myself going on to the next book in the series.

good story but religious.

I am not a religious person, so getting a book that's dripping in godliness was not what I was going for...
but it's pretty good. I live in Amish country and really enjoy my neighbors and that's what sparked me getting the book.
charcaters are very well done, storyline is predictable, and narrative is convincing
worth it for the romance package, not worth it for me for a credit.

Sweet story of Friendship

Sweet story of Friendship that crosses cultural differences...EVEN withIN your own country/neighbourhood. Also glimpse of FAMILY BY CHOICE...serving together can make you CLOSER than bloodlines.
