In “Amish Love of a Lifetime” the author, Sadie Palmer, gives us precisely that, a love story of two endearing individuals, Rebecca Bieler and Isaac Schuster, which spans the 73 years of their lives. It starts with a puppy love kind of a close relationship when they were 3 and 4 years old; where she accepted him despite and didn’t tease him because of his having a lisp, which he appreciated.
Al this had been too good for these two as Isaac’s parents moved miles away to Ohio from Lancaster, PA, because his uncle got sick, leaving him depressed. When he got old enough he made the decision to move back in the hopes of courting Rebecca, a decision which winds up distressingd his parents no end.
The thing is Rebecca had always hoped their relationship even at a young age would turn out to be something more substantial, like marriage. And was quite pleased when she saw his return; hoping he’d start the courting process, starting with the simplistic buggy rides alone with each other; a courting process which the rest of the population here had until the beginning of the 20th century, a courting process which is far more beautiful and simplistic than the haphazard, harried ones we have today.
If Isaac does what she hopes he will, her dreams of having a HEA with him will become a pleasing reality; if he doesn’t their relationship could easily turn into something else, and during this time her faith will be continuously tested.
In the end, the author’s experience living close to the Amish community in Holmes County, Ohio, gives her readers a beautiful, realistic inside glimpse of what the lives of Rebecca and Isaac had become with their marriage, having children and grandchildren, along with all the trials and tribulations the Amish lifestyle might give a typical married couple.
I’m glad and sadden that Ms. Palmer decided to take us through their lives, until the day Rebecca dies and Isaac is left sadly left alone, without the love of his lifetime by his side. An ending which we a seldom, if ever allow to see, once the couple in the HEA stories we love to read, get married and we’re left wondering what happens next in their lives.
For having given me, and her readers, a sweet love story without a single sex scene we’re usually accustomed in reading in many HEA stories I’m giving Ms. Palmer and “Amish Love of a Lifetime” 5 STARS.
I read this book via an Amazon-US KINDLE Unlimited download to the KINDLE device on my computer.
The author wrote a story so compelling yet simple but packed a whole lot of drama, not in your face drama but 'LIFE' plain and simple. I could so relate to this book and like I said before we are different in the eyes of ourselves but we are the same when it comes to love and family and our faith in God (no matter what denomination). Excellent read and I am fan. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to review this wonderful book. Thank you, Darlene Cruz.

If I told this story in a group, they'd all walk out from boredom, but I just kept going, thinking that there must be a plot on the next page. However, I have to say that I am glad that I read it, and I am glad that I am done with it. These lives seemed much more non-Amish than what I imagine from my own experiences and other study. The kids in this book were somewhat lazy, troubled, confused, sullen, and had attitude problems. They avoided work and study. If this had been told as a story of a Protestant family in Dubuque, it might have made more sense to me.
Oh well. Can't recommend it, really....but I wonder of other reviewers would feel differently.
They both found love in their 20's, but, both were rejected by their lovers.. Eventually the boy came back to Indiana & saw his best friend again. They fell in love and were married & had 2 children. There were many stories about the children. I don't want to give away the story. I recommend this book to everyone who finds the Amish and their stories interesting. I love to read these stories because they are always inspirational, showing the Amish love of God and family. There is never any violence or bad language in these books! They live a simple life without material "things" to clutter up their lives.
WATCH OUT FOR FUTURE BOOKS BY SADIE PALMER--- THIS IS HER FIRST ATTEMPT & SHE WILL GO FAR WITH HER STORIES ABOUT THE AMISH! GOOD LUCK, SADIE!
