ABOUT THE BOOK
Born to an ex-Amish mother and an Englisch father, 23-year-old Tyler Anderson was raised as a military kid until the age of 6, when his mom passed away. His dad, shipping off to yet another overseas post, placed Tyler in the care of his Amish grandparents, an arrangement that was supposed to be temporary. It lasted a lifetime.
Rachel Hoeck is the young woman waiting for Tyler’s proposal. She senses that though he loves her and wishes to make a commitment to her and his Amish beliefs, part of him still wonders whether an Amish lifestyle is truly for him. When an opportunity to connect with his father unexpectedly arises, a visit to California causes Tyler to question everything, including a future with Rachel. Will the new girl in his life, Lark, cause him to remain in the Englisch world? Or will he choose to be an Amish groom after all?
A poignant novel of hoping for romance and searching for identity, set in a beloved Amish community.

My Thoughts: The Amish Groom was an interesting twist on Amish romance. Since Tyler spent his first six years in the English world before being left with his Amish grandparents, he has a different perspective than his Amish friends and family. Now as an adult, he feels something is missing, and wonders if it is his English heritage. The story was exciting as Tyler travels to California to care for his half-brother, and is immersed in the English world. I enjoyed The Amish Groom and look forward to more books in the Men of Lancaster County Series. It's nice to have a series focusing on the men this time!
