Book Review of Summer’s Promise by Barbara Cameron

Summer's Promise

About: Can she leave everything she knows for love?

Summer Carson has lived near the Amish community in Paradise, Pennsylvania, all her life. Now she’s following in her father’s footsteps and earning her degree in agricultural science so she can continue his work helping local farmers.

In her job at the county extension office, Summer moves between the Englisch and the Amish worlds. While she sometimes finds herself speaking–and even thinking–in Pennsylvania Deitsch, the transition isn’t always easy. But what has come naturally to Summer is her attraction to one of the farmers: Abram Yoder is handsome, steady, and hardworking. He’s everything so many of the Englisch men she knows are not. And Summer quickly realizes that she’s caught his eye as well.

Can Summer give up the comforts she’s always known for a life with this Amish man? And is Abram willing to let her try?




My Review of Summer’s Promise by Barbara Cameron: After reading two really bad Christian fiction books that I didn’t even finish this was a breathe of fresh air, the story line was a new plot to me for Amish fiction in a good way. The busyness of the character is something I am sure many can connect with through this unique story of love with an Amish man and Englisch young college woman. I enjoyed the subtle romance and the changes through the book and it has the sweetest ending. The story is sweet, clean, though there are some people that are nosy – and somewhat annoying.

Rating: 3 and 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 stars.

Recommendation: 13 up for romance.

Verse: Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (King James Version.)
