Miriam's Blessing

Miriam is still in Oklahoma teaching at the Amish school, stil dating her uncle's hired hand, still the owner of a productive farm, and still in possession of two million dollars.

Miriam's sister, Shirley, has gone back to Possum Valley and back to her old habits, to her parents' dismay. When an outing with Jonas Beachy turns tragic, everything in Miriam's world begins to turn upside-down. Shirley suffers facial scarring. Soon after that, Miriam's old boyfriend is in a buggy accident that kills his wife.

And then, there's the tornado that tears through the town where Miriam is living, and with untold devastation.

Every thing that happens has a direct effect on Miriam and it takes serious faith and strength of will to see the blessings she truly has.

Jerry Eicher has done a masterful job in writing this novel. The more he writes about Miriam, the more you wish you could be her friend.

Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and an all-pervading sense of peace.

My thanks to Harvest House Publishers for allowing me to read and review this book.
