A Man of His Word by Kathleen Fuller

I must admit that I was a bit skeptical regarding whether I would enjoy the book A Man of His Word by Kathleen Fuller because I didn't think I would like it. Blame it on my 15-year-old memories of reading "clean" novels that left me feeling gypped. Fuller's book had the exact opposite affect. It describes the Old Order Amish community in great details, it caused me to feel the emotions of Moriah Miller as well as her family and friends, and it wrapped it all up in a message that was delivered without being preachy.

Moriah goes from happiness to sorrow in just a few short months. Newly wed and newly pregnant she is abandoned by her husband, Levi. He not only left her, but he also turns his back on their faith. She moves on with her life with the assistance of the community, but refuses to receive help from someone who feels way more than sympathy for her. Gabriel - Levi's twin.

This novel was entertaining and romantic with touches of surprise and suspense. And, in the end, it was definitely inspiring. Despite the vast differences between my life and Moriah's I was able to see a correlation between my trials and hers along with an answer that is best for us both. I'm sure that regardless of what you're going through - big or small - you'll also be encouraged and entertained by A Man of His Word.

  1. I would have never thought to read this, but now I'm so curious. Half the time I feel like I'm Amish anyway... no cell phone, no GPS, no cable, no Facebook... Hmm.... ;-)

  2. Valerie, No Facebook? How do you survive? LOL... just kidding. I have cable, but my TV died and the plan is cheaper if you have the package than if I just cancel it and keep the Internet. Isn't that crazy?!

    I don't have a land line so the cell phone is it for me. ... but at least I have FB. LOL... I couldn't resist. Just kidding again.
