I enjoyed this story, as I have all of Jerry S. Eicher's books that I have read. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, Where Love Grows.

I am also looking forward to reading the first book in Eicher's new series, The Beiler Sisters, entitled Holding a Tender Heart. The second book in this series, Seeing Your Face Again, is scheduled for release on June 1, 2014.
Jerry S. Eicher has left me wondering what is going to happen in "Where Love Grows" with Teresa Long and her fatherless son, the Englisha girl that home home with Susan Hostetler, to learn the Amish ways.

With the Deacon and ministers being strict on Teresa, she is accepting of the ministers ruling of her, but not mentioning her newborn son, the Hostetler's take him to church.

Review of Following Your Heart, Book 2 in Fields of Home series

By Jerry Eicher

What an exciting book! I was so sad when Missing Your Smile ended as I was anxious to find out what was going to happen to Susan Hostetler and Teresa Long when they returned to Susan's Amish home in Indiana. I was not disappointed in the book, but was surprised and upset when Deacon Ray banned Teresa from attending the church services or interacting with the Amish community. At least, he didn't say that Anna and Menno...more

Last night I finished this book = #2 in the Fields of Home Series. It was just as good as the
first book and I can't wait to start the last book in this trilogy tonight. Looking forard to the
conclusion of this story line.
I finished "Following Your Heart" by Jerry Eicher. It gets 5 stars. It is the second book in the Fields Of Home Series. Susan (Amish) and Teresa (English) return to the Amish community so that Samuel, Teresa's baby born out of wedlock can be raised Amish and then decides she wants to be Amish too but must agreed to marry Yost Byler first. But James the bishop's son has other ideals. And Thomas is still trying to win Susan back after she saw him kissing another girl after the Sunday singing!
Rena Holcomb
Very enjoyable book full of twists and turns, another complex look at the simple life of the Amish community and a young Englisha woman, Teresa Long, whose greatest desire is to live among them and to raise her illegitimate son, Samuel, Amish. Her friend, Susan Hostetler is very present in this story and readers should enjoy the moves and surprises concerning both Teresa and Susan’s lives.
Martha Valasek
I was surprised to find out that this story was written by a man who had grown up in an Amish home. It is also unique in that a single mother with her child from our culture wants to become a member of the Amish community. The story deals with acceptance of those who have had problems in their past.

**I received this book from Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley. I am not required to give a positive review, just an honest one. This review will be posted to Amazon, Goodreads, and my personal blog at the appropriate time**

Look for my review to come soon!
This book was okay. I paid $2.99 for it, so that was a reasonable price... I would not pay the $8.57 for it that its currently listed at. I did not read book 1 in the series, and it probably would have helped me understand the plot in this book more if I had.
Excellent. Planning to go back and read the first in this series. And really looking forward to the third book.
Loved it as always !
