2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointing June 22 2012
By Amber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't get it - why isn't anyone reviewing the fact this book has premartial sex and it is neither looked at as immoral or wrong in God's eyes? Yes, Beverly Lewis has a character who gets pregnant, but it is looked at as wrong. Cindy Woodsmall has a rape, but obviously that's sex in an unfavorable light. Not only do the main characters have sex in Hills of Wheat but it is set up in a romantic scene with too much description and under the guise that this must be 'God's will' for her. Just because a person feels attracted and 'in love' with another person, does not mean it is God's will. Also, what kind of man would take advantage of a dewy eyed Amish girl if he truly loved her and respected her beliefs - though maybe she doesn't have any beliefs on the subject. Here's Jake speaking after they've had sex, "What we just experienced was magical, Sylvia. And that's because there is no shame or sin in loving one another. Do you understand that?" She nodded.' I find it funny Sylivia finds it more objectionable to ride in Jake's truck on a Sunday and violate the church's rules than to sleep with her boyfriend, which violates God's laws. I kept waiting for a scene to come up later where the two are repentant, but this does not happen. There is ZERO mention that sex before marriage is wrong. I would never want my daughters to read this book, and that's saying something, considering this is an Amish novel.

Other than that, this novel reads similair to the author's previous book. The Amish father is clueless and jovial once again, finding nothing wrong with letting his unbaptized daughter clean the house of the handsome, young widower. The Amish mother is suspicious and withdrawn, clearly seeing the writing on the wall, as, if you read the first book, they just went through their son dating an Englicsher. Once again, there are tons of editing errors and repeats of thoughts.

What's really disappointing is this author is not a bad writer. I do get engaged in her story line and find it hard to set down (until the very surprising sex scene-I thought perhaps this would lead to a pregnancy which would open Sylivia's eyes which would 'redeem' the need for sex in this book), but I find this author's writing gives a confusing message spiritually. Being Amish alone will not get you into Heaven. Being a Christian will.

So while this author spins Amish novels in a different fashion than Beverly Lewis, Cindy Woodsmall, or Wanda Brumstetter, I find her writing questionable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, appalled, shocked Jan. 11 2013
By Christina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm disappointed that this is billed as "Christian" fiction. The characters talk about God, but don't live their relationship with him. Pre-marital sex happens and they call it "God's will". The hero (Jake) has so little regard for Sylvia's purity and honor that he brings her into a situation to entice premarital sex. There is zero repentance, there is zero alignment with God's truth, there is zero regard for struggling through the want of sex before marriage, but holding off and receiving God's blessings for avoiding temptation.

Sylvia is so concerned about riding in Jake's vehicle - she feels he steals her purity when he briefly kisses her - and yet she willingly has sex with him? What flake of a character is this? As this truly is a shallow character, who has so little regard for her relationship with God that she allows carnality to be her guide. I was beyond disappointed in Jake - blathering on about being honorable, having honorable intentions, all just to get her in his bed. He had zero respect for her purity and even less respect for her parents.

Weak, shallow characters, not true to their word, caught up in carnality but justifying their sin as "willed by God". Sorry, that's wrong.

If you are looking for a Christian Romance that adheres to a biblical world view, that the characters overcome temptation and repent when they sin, that showcases a beautiful romance through God's eyes, this is NOT that book. Protect yourself and your daughters from this book. Don't read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hills of Wheat June 2 2013
By Dali - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hills of Wheat is the second in Sarah Price's The Amish of Lancaster Series and is Sylvia Lapp's story. Sylvia's upbringing has been very sheltered. She's quiet, respectful, and obedient, to the point that she will do unpleasant tasks without murmuring or complaining.
That being said, now comes the but, which is this: but, what happens when a stranger comes into the picture?
If you think you can totally predict how the story unfolds, pretty sure you'd be wrong, unless you've read other reviews that contain "spoiler" information. First of all, props to the author for dealing with such a "controversial" topic. Yes, this is classified as a Christian romance. However, there are real issues out there that are taboo in the Christian realm, and one such topic is dealt with in the book.
Is it a touchy topic? For sure and for certain. Is it something that rarely happens in the Christian realm? No. Unless you are in denial, it happens a lot. Does that make it right? No. And here's the other but. But that doesn't mean we should sweep it all under the rug and not deal with it, as if in doing so it will go away.
I was not raised Amish, but my strict upbringing was based on religious beliefs as well as cultural beliefs and customs. I too was raised very sheltered and certain topics were never discussed. Ever. The same was the case with the friends I grew up with and went to church with. I totally get Sylvia. I understand where she's coming from and how she made the decisions that she made. I know many that took Sylvia's path. But, as you read the story, I would ask you to do so with an open mind and an open heart, because this aspect of the story is just one part. The main part is the spiritual journey that takes place from beginning to end. Sarah Price does an excellent job of letting us into Sylvia's thoughts, so that we can better understand why she does what she does.
As I said, props to the author for how she dealt with the topic. It's a beautiful and tender story. One of the messages in it is that we should not doubt God's ways. We know God has a plan, but we also know that we often stray from it. So He takes us through good and not so good in order to get us where we need to be, and to fulfill His plan, one of which is that none should perish, and Sarah brings the story full circle with that message.
Book quotes:
Rely on God. He will not lead you astray.

If she had ever doubted the way of the Lord, she knew that there was one lesson more that she needed. To doubt the Lord was to question His power and her own faith.
