Wednesday’s Wanderer: A Review From Lisa Bull and Giveaway!

How do I write a book review for a story written by my friend? That was my question.
Some pressure, huh? No.

No pressure at all because once I started reading An Amish Buggy Ride, all of my questions disappeared as I was transported to a farm in Pennsylvania. Once again Sarah Price caused me to forget about my life and lose myself in the lives of Kate Zook and Samuel Esh. She is a master at creating characters who are so real they become a part of me.

An Amish Buggy Ride
For me, relating to Kate is not difficult. She has committed what she considers un-forgivable sins and is tormented by un-forgiveness and an unrealistic self-view.
Her brother, David, feeds her feelings of worthlessness by constantly blaming her for and reminding her of a horrible accident which left him permanently injured. While his treatment of her is malicious, she allows him to continue because she feels she deserves his abuse.

Samuel Esh walks into her life and through gentle love and kindness begins treating her with respect and honor. He gives her value. He gives her time and teaches her to love and forgive herself while at the same time inches his way into her heart.

It is a beautiful story which, to me, is a parallel story to the way God treats us. We often feel unworthy of our own forgiveness, let alone God’s. God wants us to understand that He accepts us no matter what we’ve done—that He thinks we are beautiful and valuable.

An Amish Buggy Ride is a story of mistakes, choices, forgiveness, relationships and love.

As always it is pure delight to have the opportunity to read Sarah’s story as she weaves her character’s lives in with our lives…to get to know them, while learning something about myself at the same time.

  6. I truly enjoy reading Amish fiction. Their lives are so very different than an “Englishers.” Yet there are many aspects that are the same. Don’t we all make mistakes, choices, forgive, and love? I think so. It’s how we handle the outcomes and ask for God’s forgiveness. P.S.–Great review Lisa, thanks.
