Eventide by Shelley Shepard Gray (Review)

  • Series: The Days of Redemption

  • Paperback: 288 pages

  • Publisher: Avon Inspire (September 3, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0062204448

  • A young Amish woman harbors a difficult secret. Does she dare share the truth with the man she hopes to marry?

    Elsie Keim doesn't want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She's still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman—all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoconus and is slowly going blind.

    Elsie knows there's much more to her than her disease. That's why when a new neighbor, Landon Troyer, shows some interest in her, she doesn't want anything to scare him away . . . even if it means keeping her condition a secret.

    Landon is ready to start a new life and feels like Elsie may just be the right woman to start it with. But when Roman steps in and shares the truth about Elsie's illness, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. How could he keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie?

    A riveting conclusion to the Days of Redemption series, Eventide reveals the power of love to illuminate even the darkest paths and how faith, family, and forgiveness can forge through any obstacle.

    My Review:

    I loved this book. This is the third book in the Days of Redemption series and they really need to be read in order to understand the family history. The whole family is in this book. Elsie Keim stands out in this book. She is going blind and has been for ten years. Her family is very overprotective. Landon moves in next door and she starts to hope her life might be different and she might have a husband and family one day like her brother and twin sister. In the Amish world this is very important although her family makes it clear to her that they will always take care of her. There is conclusion to the other family member's plot lines too. My attention was captured from the beginning and I could not read fast enough. I really enjoyed this Amish book. Highly Recommend the whole series. :)

    Shelley Shepard Gray lives in southern Ohio and writes full-time. A busy wife and mother of two, she spends her days writing and keeping track of her two teens. Shelley enjoys writing about the Amish and visits Amish communities in Adams and Holmes counties several times a year. When not spending time with her family or writing, she serves on several committees in her church
