Book Description

Oct. 1 2008 The Courtship of Nellie Fisher (Book 3)
Although she still prays for Caleb, Nellie Mae Fisher has broken up with her beau. Now, her heart's greatest longing is for more knowledge of the Lord.

Caleb yearns for freedom, as his plans to leave Honeybrook have been thwarted. He must stay on as caretaker for his father, who was crippled in a wintertime accident. He also longs for Nellie Mae, still hoping that she will return to the Old Order...and to him.

Christian Yoder, a young Mennonite man, longs to get to know Nellie Mae better...and to share with her the secrets of her sister Suzy's final days.

Rhoda, Nellie's older sister, longs for more of what the world has to offer--from fancy clothes, to her own car, to a new English boyfriend.

Meanwhile, father Rueben Fisher longs for unity--among his family and all the brethren.

Whose longing will be satisfied, and whose will not?

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Satisfying Amish Tale Sept. 14 2008
By Tamela Mccann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beverly Lewis specializes in writing stories set in Pennsylvania's Amish country, and the final entry in her Courtship of Nellie Fisher trilogy brings us closure on another set of well-written Christian fiction. Lewis has found her niche in the book industry, and she fills it very well with entirely readable novels that take you to another place and mind-set.

Nellie Mae Fisher has been separated from her beau Caleb when her new religious convictions come between the two lovers and their families. Nellie is trying to go on with her life alone, but she is filled with anxiety not only for Caleb but for her older sister Rhoda who has left the Plain life, and her friend Rosanna who has lost her adopted twins. In addition, Nellie is still mourning the loss of her younger sister Suzy, but she is trying to feel God's presence in her life as things change in her Amish community in the 1960s. Nellie's dearest wish is for Caleb to decide to come to the New Order Amish, but after his father is gravely injured, she fears he will be forever gone from her life. Lots of circumstances must change before any happiness can be found for the members of Honey Brook community.

As usual, I like Lewis's easy writing style and her characters; Lewis has a gift for creating believable people for whom you care a great deal. This book is very preachy, however; for regular readers of Christian fiction that probably won't matter, but at times it does get a bit tedious. In addition, Lewis has a tendency to tie things up way too neatly, and changes of heart seem to be too quick to be realistic. In fact, if I could I would've rated this one 3.5 for the overly hurried happy endings, but since I do enjoy Lewis's stories and the wonderful world she creates, I feel that overall 4 stars is apt. I do hope Lewis will stray from the formula she's been using in her past two series and find some new twists she can spin in our beloved Lancaster County.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite Beverly Lewis series Aug. 9 2010
By Sonya Haskins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read many of the Beverly Lewis books and this series is by far my favorite. Of course her writing is never in question. She's an excellent writer, but like many Amish books, they tend all to start looking alike.

When I started reading this series, I knew it was going to be different. The Courtship of Nellie Mae series deals with changes that took place in the Amish church in 1966 that basically created the New Order Amish. While the book is fiction, it takes the reader through a delightful journey of history as well as the fictional lives of Nellie Mae Fisher and her family and friends.

For those who enjoy reading Amish books, but who also would like answers to some of their questions regarding the Amish faith and people, this book does address many questions I myself had. I'm sure it would answer many of yours as well.

I would highly recommend this book for those who enjoy the Lewis books and/or who like to read books about the Amish communities and their people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice end! Sept. 21 2012
By ASC Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a good end that ties up the loose ends left flapping in the wind from the last book. Wonderful surprises and good endings await you in the final book of Beverly Lewis' series. I only had one fault with it; one end did not work out as I wanted. Though that is my opinion you must read and form your own! :)

My song for this book is: "Pass Me Not" by The Cluster Pluckers

5.0 out of 5 stars The Longing Aug. 28 2012
By debwilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The thing Nellie Mae Fisher has longed for the most is gone - her dream to be Caleb Yoder's wife. Her stance against the new found faith of her family has changed, and she years to learn more in their New Order church. Her new friend, a young Mennonite, Christian Yoder has secrets to share about Suzy's final days - news that will change how Nellie sees the world. But does he have more than friendship on his mind?

Caleb wants nothing more than to make Nellie his bride, but despite his plans to make a life for them, his plans are thwarted by an accident. Struggling to stay on track, he hopes that Nellie hasn't forgotten him and her promise to be his bride. Will they ever be able to be together? Or will circumstances - and his father keep them apart for good?

This was a very enjoyable ending to the Courtship of Nellie Fisher. Lewis has given us her usual serving of mystery, romance, and family drama to keep me turning pages and loosing sleep. She does not disappoint in this final installment, and keeps everything fresh despite the concurrent theme of her writings. An excellent writing based on actual events. I recommend this book, this series, and this writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good Read! Oct. 13 2011
By SR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Highly recommend this book! ALL OF BEVERLY LEWIS' books are excellently written, and all of them, I have read so far,(7) have been just as I had hoped --- they are "page turners" and for the past 2 months, have read one right after the other! They have all been different but similar, in the plots.

She gives enough details about the countryside and lifestyles of the "plain" people, that you would think you are actually "THERE" with them. She also includes "Englishers" as well, so the reader can see the contrasts and similarities of both groups of people.

My aim is to acquire all of Beverly Lewis' books, and enjoy them! Very good read!
