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 The Amish mother is suspicious and withdrawn, clearly seeing the writing on the wall, as, if you read the first book, they just went through their son dating an Englicsher.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.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! Oct. 19 2013
By Kzoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many editing errors and poor research. The author doesn't know much about the Amish or farming. The book was not edited. The characters are not believable. I'm shocked, because I thought I liked this author. I thought I liked her other books, and I bought all four in this series. Now I hope to return books 3 and 4.

Plot problems: The heroine was portrayed as a shy, devout Amish woman, yet at the first chance she's offered, she jumps into bed with an older man. This scene felt so out of character! And she felt no guilt or remorse for her actions. I just did not believe the book at all from that point on.

The hero claimed to love this innocent, pure Amish girl, yet he seduces her, marries her, then abandons her for several weeks. It is implied that he lost his first wife in the 911 attacks, capitalizing on that tragedy, yet nothing is clear. I got the sense that he had some PTSD, which wasn't really dealt with. This felt so contrived.

I've been on dairy farms. I grew up in Wisconsin. When the cows are brought into the barn, they are fed WHILE you milk. When you're done milking, you turn the cows out of the barn and you are done... yet after her farmer was done milking, he went around to feed the cows. What were the cows doing all the time he was milking? A big waste of time...and the cows would not have been happy to stand there for 90 minutes or so with empty mangers, because the farmer didn't know what he was doing.

The hero was a multi-millionaire. What was he going to do with all that money? I kind of expected him to give it away after he came to know the Lord - IF he came to know the Lord. There was no sense of repentance in this story.

The author obviously hadn't proof-read the story. She continually used "insure" instead of "ensure". There were multiple times when she wrote "he" instead of "she" and visa versa. I am so thoroughly disappointed and disgusted.
