I'm thrilled with the new reviews that are popping up on my book The Miting: An Old Order Amish Novel. Because the book is just now reaching the readers, through Nook and Kindle downloads, I'm seeing what my readers think of Leah and the family of characters who reside inside my book. To those who have written a review, I offer a hearty THANK YOU! To those who plan to write a review in the future, I also say THANK YOU! I'm blessed and grateful because I know how busy we all are and it takes commitment to write a review. You are blessings, Readers, and I appreciate you.
I'm posting the reviews here, just in case someone is looking for a new Amish read. Also, the paperback version of The Miting is making its way to local bookstores and online book sites within the next few weeks, so I appreciate your patience in waiting for pre-orders and orders to be shipped. If you find it at a local bookstore, I'd love for you to drop me a line here or on my Dee Yoder: Writer of Christian Fiction Author Facebook page. Thank you, Readers!
Few people, besides Dee Yoder, would even be able to write a book like this. Here is why: Not only did she marry Arlen, from Amish descent, but she is very much involved with our organization, Mission to Amish People. Dee and her husband, Arlen, have made it their purpose in life to come alongside those who have already left their Amish families and community and want to start over in our English society. Dee knows what it's like to sit next former Amish youth and weep with them because they long for their parents and family back home. She knows what it feels like to sit next to a hospital bed during tragedies and celebrate GED accomplishments. On many occasions, Dee and Arlen have opened their home to birthday parties, prayer meetings and Bible studies; yes, and even film crews from NYC and as far away as England.
As a friend and co-laborer in Jesus Christ, I highly recommend Dee's book, The Miting. You will be blessed and drawn into a world that many are becoming more and more aware of.
Founder and Director of Mission of Amish People
I loved Leah the main character in this book. A 17 year old girl bound by her Amish upbringing but not understanding why her bishop and her family are so against her wanting to read and study the scriptures in the English Bible. Leah has such a hunger and thirst to learn more about Jesus and what He taught.
Leah’s life is not easy as she follows her heart to do what she has to do to find freedom in her relationship with Jesus Christ. Will her family understand? Will she be put under the Miting if she doesn’t give up her daily Bible reading?
The characters in this book were real to me. I worried for Leah, I prayed for Leah, I cried with Leah. I wanted to be her friend and give her comfort.
This is one of the very best Amish fiction books I have ever read. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!
I highly, highly, recommend this book to anyone reading this review. It will hold you captive!
I won this book on LibraryThing to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.
