Where Love Grows was a book I was looking forward to but sad to get at the same time. I knew this was the last book in the series and, like with all of Mr. Eicher's series, I have come to love the characters. This book brought the series to a wonderful conclusion and I was happy to see everything resolved.

In this book we actually get 2 stories, the long awaited wedding of Teresa, Susan's Englisha friend, and the ups and downs of Susan's relationship with her old boyfriend Thomas and the decision

Where Love Grows is the third book in Jerry Eicher’s “Fields of Home” trilogy. I enjoyed the first two books, and have been looking forward to the rest of the story.

Susan Hostetler’s English friend, Teresa, who joined the Amish community in the second book of this trilogy, is marrying a man she truly loves. Susan is happy things have worked out so well for Teresa, but what about her own life? The suitor who once cheated on her seems sincere, but can he be trusted? Sometimes she wishes he could b

Alright, I'm starting to get into the Amish Fiction that my mother reads, but not nearly as much as she is. I decided to give this book a shot because it sounded good. I was a bit confused by the story, though. What I failed to realize is that this is the third in a series, but I did manage to figure out the majority of what I had missed in the previous books, which is a good thing for a series.

The premise of the story is that Susan Hostetler had a falling out with her boyfriend, left the Amish

Susan has returned home, still not sure if she wants to stay and give Thomas another chance or if she'll return to 'the world' as Steve the hired hand calls it. Teresa, the reason she returned to her Amish home, has fallen in love and will soon be married and Teresa's son, Samuel, will have a real daedt. Teresa keeps trying to convince Susan to give Thomas his second chance, so she's been trying.

About a week before Teresa's wedding, who has become like an adopted member of the Hostetler family,

We join this ongoing story, Susan Hostetler is happy for her friend Teresa. Teresa had come home with Susan from Asbury Square, when Susan had gone to the city, following a betrayal, but now they are back home with Susan's family and Teresa is getting married, and it seems that Susan and her betraying boyfriend Thomas seems to be patching things up.

However wedding day brings huge changes for Susan and her family. Thomas openly flirts with a new girl and tells Susan it is over, but the biggest

This is the final book in this series. What an excellent way to end the story. Teresa has found true love and someone to be a Godly father to her son Samuel. This fulfilled her wish to raise her son Amish. Susan on the other hand has given Thomas another chance. Once again he blows it. We learn he was more intersted in Susan's father's farm than in Susan. This turns out okay because Susan is being pursued by another man. The question is will Susan allow herself the luxury of letting someone else ...more

I love Jerry Eicher's books and have read all but his two newest ones. I recall when I read my first book by him that I was impressed that he has a different way of writing about the Amish. I was also highly impressed that a man could write such wonderful romantic tales! This book is no let down! I had fallen in love with Susan and Teresa in the two previous books: Missing Yous Smile and Following Your Heart. I really like Susan's spunky attitude and her zest for life. She has been hurt by two v ...more

I have read other books by Jerry Eicher & never been disappointed. I read this one on & off in the course of 2 days. The character development was great. I loved the dynamics in the relationships between Teresa & Susan & Menno & Anna & the rest of the family members. In the end Susan after feeling she will never be married ends up with Steven Mast who works on her dad's farm. For Steven it is his first chance at courting. I like the way the book turned out in the end. The ...more

This is book three in the Fields of Home Series written by Jerry Eicher. I would recommend reading the others in the series before reading this one. You will get a full understanding of the characters and setting that way and not feel like you are coming into the middle of a story.

I gave this book 4/5 stars. I did not especially enjoy the main character in the story, Susan. I do not like characters that are very dependent on others and feelings to respond to their circumstances. I thought she co

I enjoyed this book, as well as the entire "Fields of Home" series. I am looking forward to reading Holding a Tender Heart, the first book in Jerry S. Eicher's new series, "The Beiler Sisters."

I had read another book by Jerry Eicher and thought it was just okay but I really enjoyed Where Love Grows. We meet Susan after she's back home from her flight into the Englisha world and learn of her struggles. In addition, we get a new perspective with an Englisha girl becoming Amish (something I had never thought of) and her mom visiting her new world. I even enjoyed the story of Susan's father and struggles from his past coming back to haunt him.

I read all The Fields of Home series and loved them all. I was so happy that Teresa found love and happiness for her and her son. Susan finds love again with Steve! God always has a plan for you and reading this series taught me to always trust God for everything. I laughed and cried along with the characters. I can't wait to read Jerry Eicher's next book!

Perfect ending to to this series. Throughout the series, Susan is one of the main characters. This book has a new beginning for her. Jerry Eicher does a great job with making these books authentic.

The scenes he creates are so descriptive and vivid. Blessings, Susan Fryman
