Recent Comments "Rumspringa's Hope"
Reviewed by The Power of Words: tinyurl/m7ua33rI've read a good bit of Amish fiction over the years - but if there's one thing I've learned thus far, it's that Amish fiction is not all the same. Some are comfortable, "feel good" reads, some are humorous, and others have a more serious tone with a focus on the struggles the Amish face. Beth Shriver's fiction tends to fall into this latter category and her books always give me cause for reflection. I found it hard to put down - not because of the [...]
This was a nice, sweet story. The plot was good and it had a few heartwarming moments.A problem I had was with the characters- they seemed to change their minds a lot, and not always obviously. Sometimes you didn’t realize they changed their mind until a long time afterwards, by which time they’d changed it again. So I never really knew where characters stood on certain issues. That was the biggest issue.Other than that it was great. The plot really picked up when Emma went to Philly and met [...]
Rumspringa’s Hope is just that, going into the English world, but not joining them, but trying to bring God’s Word and Love to them. I felt that Emma’s brother Jack was out of control, and not living his Amish faith, what to do? Emma finds out her brother is going to go on his rumspringa and going to Philadelphia, PA, and decides she will go and keep an eye on him, and maybe share some faith with people.While the Amish religion does not per say proselytize, Emma seems to want to do what he [...]

Beth Shriver has written a very unique book with “Rumspringa’s Hope”Typically when you read a book about the Amish, Rumspringa is part of it but not the focus.Even with stories where the main conflict hinges on that mysterious time in an Amish teens life, we only get a glimpse of what goes on during that oh so secret period.And that is exactly why we “Englisch” are so fascinated by it, why we have reality TV shows that imitate it, why we read about it in almost every Amish book on the [...]
One thing I've found out about Beth Shriver's books is that the reader will either love them or hate them. I happen to be in the first categoryI love them. Yes, for some readers this read may be a tad slow but one must read on for the information about what is going on.This is the first book in the Spirit of the Amish: Three young Amish women face overwhelming obstacles and must struggle to find out who they are and what they believe. Although each is dealing with her own unique situation, they [...]
Good read and enlighteningWhy are the youth so curious of what else is out there? That is what this book is about.

However there are those who have to see for themselves that there really is a danger out there or to lead those to the Lord. They find plenty of excitement and adventure off the farm. They learn from [...]

Another Amish book that I loved! This story was filled with love, wonder, and love again. I kept wondering who Emma would end up with.Caleb or Zeb. This book definitely kept me interested and just when I thought I had it figured out, it would take a turn in the opposite direction. Luckily, Emma chose the right man. I was glad it had a happy ending.

Emma Miller is sort of engaged to Zeb Bowman, but still has feelings for her ex-beau Caleb Lapp, who left the Amish community to run a ministry in Philadelphia. When her younger brother Mark wants to go to Philly on rumspringa, she goes with him, ostensibly to keep him out of trouble, but also to evangelize. Zeb worries that she will reconnect with Caleb, and Caleb hopes for the same thing. When it comes down to it, Emma has to make a decision between them. In a secondary story line, while in th [...]
This is a first read by this author. I really enjoyed the book. The author instead of putting down the teens who try their hand at Rumspringa, she made the story into what it can become in a literal light, in a good way.
Much different than your usual Amish book. A young Amish man leaves his community to try to guide and protect the Teens that are coming to Philly to experience Rumspringa.
