    8. The Bishop s Son isn t your run of the mill Amish love triangle book Nor is it your standard dose of Amish fiction Not only does the author set her story in an unusual place Who knew there were Amish settlements in Texas , with her thematic focus, Kelly Irvin takes chances But it all seems to fit You see, unlike the beautifully verdant and fertile pastures of Lancaster County, Bee County land is dry and unsuited to farming This unforgiving landscape is like the untamed Wild West Why is this a na [...]

    16. The Bishop s Son is my first book by Kelly Irvin and I throughly enjoyed it This is the second in a series but can be read as a standalone I loved the characters, the story itself and how reading it made me feel Amish are raised to set themselves apart from the rest of the world When they begin associating with the English community during their teenage running around years it gives them a chance to see how others live Jesse gets acquainted with a couple of teenagers that draw him into their chu [...]

    19. This was such an interesting Amish fiction I have always enjoyed Amish fiction, but this one was very different from anything I have read I had never read a book where the plot of the story focused on the choices Amish young people must make while choosing to follow or not follow their faith This book is also a story of salvation and God s grace The Bishop s Son is book two in the Amish of Bee County series I have not read the first book and had no trouble following this book It reads just fine [...]

    22.

    25. Captivating and Poignant That s the best description I can think of.The storyline, the characters and even the subplots were so wellwritten that it was hard for me to put this book down.I quickly became just as torn as Leila when she was being courted by both Jessie, the Bishop s son and his cousin Will One of the sweetest moments in the book was the dance shared between Leila and Will They didn t know how to dance, obviously and what I thought would be an awkward moment was somehow quite sweet [...]

This was such a wonderful read 3 young people trying to decide what they want Jesse like Leila, but he is deciding during his rumspringa if he want to stay Amish or join his English friends and join their church But with likely Leila and not wanting to take her away from his family because if he doesn t join the Amish community they will not be able to see their families Jesse cousin Will also likes Leila and tries to make her stay away from him But Leila go on one courting date with Jesse and f [...]

    27. A great story from Kelly Irvin While this book is part of a series, it totally can stand alone Reading book one of the series, would acquaint you with the main characters, but it isn t necessary I really enjoyed the path this book took, it was very unexpected for me Set in the dry countryside, the Beeville, Amish community struggles to stay afloat Making a living in the dry Texas countryside is hard, and to help her family Leila Lantz is allowed to work at an English daycare center Life changes [...]

    28. Kelly certainly doesn t write easy, sweet, cutesie stories Her plots are intense, her characters are deep, and her solutions are never quite what you re expecting.Make of that what you will I m not spoiling the book for you Don t try to make me Have you ever been in a situation where you see your life going in to different directions Bother paths have appealing aspects and both have struggles you d rather not face Which do you choose HOW do you choose How will Leila choose Well, to find out you [...]

    29. I loved this book I think I have loved most, if not all, of the books I ve read by Kelly Irvin She tends to delve into the difficult, real problems of life, just from an Amish perspective I liked Leila s choice nope, no spoilers here , but think if she d chosen the other route, it would have been just as satisfying This book, I think, shows that there s not always one RIGHT choice We all struggle with choices that both seem right this school or that one, that car or this one, etc Sometimes we ju [...]

    30. Jesse Glick the bishop s son hides his feelings for Leila Lantz very well, in fact she thinks he is not interested in her He is going through some tough times which will shape the rest of his life and Leila s also if she lets him get closer to her.This book is the second in the Amish series and I have to say it was a very fast read, I couldn t wait to find out what happened with Jesse and Leila The end brought all the decisions together beautifully and I need to go get the third book in the seri [...]
