I think everyone who deals with predudice and fear should read this book. I think Andrew spells out LOVE in a poignant way. It was a book that meant a lot to me the first time I read it. The theme of "no shame" stupid out in a personal w ...more
I just did not understand Geoff's treatment shown to Len?
I did not understand the why(s) of the slut'ness of Geoff's persona?
And, I do not recall the use of condum's?
And, why is this book so poorly edited, from DSP, where I pay top dollar for my books?

Story and its message are nice/OK --> "Love conquers it all!" plus "Noone needs to feel ashamed about loving and caring for another human being."
That is, of course, very true and one can just hope, that all these ignorant and intolerant people out there will figure this out rather sooner than later.
But all in all: Nothing new here, the book and the story were just OK, but what bothered me (besides from this story not being very original, new and inventive) was that the writin ...more

This book is about little Geoff all grown up. This book started out sad but it just shows you to waist no time and to love to the fullest every minute of every day.
Little Geoff finds the love of his life. I truly loved this story.
3.5 stars here. A somewhat bland but likeable m/m romance. Geoff leaves Chicago to return to the family farm upon the death of his (gay) father. He falls for Elijah, a 20 year old Amish boy who is spending a year away from his community.
'If he were honest with himself, he really did like Eli... a lot. The way he looked in the saddle, the way he smiled, the way those eyes danced when he was h ...more

I'm looking forward to re reading the next book and seeing Geoff as a little boy again lol.
My one niggle was Frank and the way he believed the lies without hesitation but then back tracked imediately. That scene just never flowed as smoothly as the rest.
I think this is my favorite of the series, and conveniently the first (although I read it second). Order isn't vital to the stories, unless you want to be surprised by happy endings. So Geoff comes home after the death of his father and decides to stay and take over the family farm. Shortly after his arrival, Eli appears, 100% Amish and straight from the community. He's taking a year break to "diminish his rebel spirit."
Geoff and Eli have a very nice dynamic and are both sweet as sugar. T ...more

A virgin Amish boy meets a more seasoned city boy on the farm and they fall in love.
When the Amish boy discovers the city fellow was very sexually active he sadly pouts and the city fellow tells him it was just sex but with him it’s love making.
City boy then proceeds to have the Amish boy fuck him bareback.
Naively (pre barebacking) I was thinking what a great book for young gay kids to read.
Color me stupid.
Ah-young love, may it survive!
I really wanted to like this story. The premise was good. The characters were quite likeable. But it was just a little much for me.
Too much sweetness. Too much melodrama.
I do get the appeal of this book though. There's a sort of innocence and purity of love that shines through the story. A belief that love will absolutely triumph regardless of the obstacles. It's an appealing thought.
I do like my stories sweet, but with just the teeniest bit of ...more

Geoff’s hand made small circles on his stomach.
"Elijah." Geoff rarely called him that, and he turned his head to look into Geoff’s eyes. "I don’t love you because you’re beautiful. You’re beautiful because I love you.”
