4.0 étoiles sur 5 It starts with the love for a child 15 mars 2013
Par Connie R. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A Promise for Miriam is the first book in the Pebble Creek Amish Series. Having read this and the following book, A Home for Lydia, I can tell you that each book can stand as a story on its' own.
In this story, Gabe is a widower who decides to take his daughter, Grace, to a new Amish community after his wife dies. It's all about possibilities, and also healing. Grace doesn't speak, and hasn't since her mamm died. Gabe hopes that this new home can give her a new beginning, and maybe himself too. Their story unfolds as father and daughter get used to their new home, community, neighbors and worship community.
The author weaves her knowledge and love for the Amish into her story with a natural rhythm that isn't forced. This book was a little gem of joy!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Engrossing, fantastic story...couldn't put it down! 7 juillet 2012
Par E. S. Funk - Publié sur Amazon.com

I could not put this book down, and read it in two days! As others have said, I am a fan of Vanetta Chapman's fiction, especially the quilt mystery series. She has a beautiful writing style, and she knows how to weave a story well.

This was a love story that kept me on the edge of my seat, but it is also a look into the lives of a more fundamental Amish culture that eschews indoor bathrooms and gas stoves for a simpler life style. I found it fascinating to read, knowing the differences between the culture in this group, as compared to the culture depicted in Chapman's Shipshewanna quilt mysteries that are more "liberal" in their use of electricity.

In addition to the love story, the third "act" involves a Donald Trump-style businessman who tries to come in and exploit the people in the community for his own monetary gain. The descriptions of what he had in mind for the town made me laugh as they became so ridiculous, and contrary to the beliefs of the Amish people. The "Amish Arcade" and the description of the "Amish Abbey" were my favorites. I couldn't help but giggle at Gabe's reaction to this..."We're not Catholic!"

Chapman's use of imagery and her ability to allow the reader to feel what the character was feeling made my heart ache at times, and rejoice at others, which is testament to her ability to immerse a reader in the story.

I also loved the varying points of view, and the changing first person viewpoint. Most of the chapters were from Miriam's or Gabe's point of view, but some were from Grace, Gabe's daughter, giving us the child's account of what she was seeing in the story.

As an English teacher myself, who happens to be married to a science teacher, I had to laugh out loud at her descriptions of Miriam using her "teacher voice" and "teacher look" with her family, something I have been accused of more than once! Thanks for a wonderful, enjoyable read, and the taste of the second book in the series that also gives us a hint as to what happens to Gabe and Miriam in the next chapter of their lives! I will be ordering the next one, too!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 SWEET LOVE STORY 24 mars 2014
Par Michelle Chamberlin - Publié sur Amazon.com

Gabe has lost his wife, and is trying to raise his daughter alone. They move to Pebble Creek to start over where our story essentially begins in earnest. Miriam is a teacher at Pebble Creek and has remained single much longer than other girls in the community. The interaction between Gabe and Miriam over Gabe's daughter is filled with tension that leaves the reader wondering if Miriam will end up kissing Gabe or walking away. There is another young man in the community that is also vying for Miriam's attention. This is a nice story and you would enjoy it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must-read Amish romance! 31 mai 2014

A Promise for Miriam is a must-read Amish romance! With its endearing characters, emotional storyline, and tender romance, A Promise for Miriam captured my heart and made me long for more of this special community and its wonderful residents! I can't wait to visit Pebble Creek, Wisconsin again in the pages of A Home for Lydia!

I highly recommend A Promise for Miriam, as well as the other novels in the Pebble Creek series!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An honest and poignant voice in Amish fiction 5 juillet 2012
Par Sis Steele - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Vannetta Chapman has a unique voice in the world of Amish fiction. Her ability to portray Amish men and women as human beings, her daring to portray the clashes with the modern world and the challenges involved have truly won me over to reading Amish fiction. The growth of her storytelling, so wonderful in A Simple Amish Christmas, has become even deeper, richer and more complex.

The story of Gabe, Miriam and Grace is one many of us can relate to in our own lives. A Promise for Miriam is about hiding from the world's hurts and being coaxed out by love. The first in a new series by Chapman, this book is a promise to her readers to deliver a truly marvelous series of stories about an Amish community and its residents in Wisconsin. Can't wait for the next one!
