Missing Your Smile (Fields of Home, Book #1) by Jerry Eicher

When Susan Hostetler has a falling out with her boyfriend, she leaves her Amish community and moves to Asbury Park to experiment in English life. There she learns to drive a car, takes her GED test, and falls in love with young and handsome Duane Bower. Just as Susan is enjoying her new life, her plans are interrupted.

My Thoughts: This was the first Amish book by Jerry Eicher that I have read and I have to say that was very enjoyable. He brought his characters to life with everyday emotions and very relatable situations. From becoming disheartened by her beau in her Amish community, follow Susan Hostetler as she tries to find her way in the English world. Will she find a man to fulfill her dreams and become totally worldly or will she follow her heart and return to the home that is still in very much on her mind? Come read and see where Susan’s faith and caring heart leads her. I know I am looking forward to the next book, Follow Your Heart, to see what comes next! Happy Reading Everyone!

My Rating: 5 Stars
