Sadie Fischer is quite content being Amish community, Miller's Crossing's, school teacher. As long as her parents resist their urge to marry Sadie off to a local widower, Sadie would be happy to stay right where she is in her teaching position. She has her family and her friends as well as the students who look up to her, and for now that suits her fine.
Levi Byler needed a change from his own Amish community. His fiancee jilts him, deciding to leave the Amish to be with an Englisch man, leaving Levi heartbroken and confused. He has come to the conclusion he needs to be alone and not take a wife. Levi travels to Miller's Crossing to help his cousin with his carpentry business and when he happens upon a Sadie Fischer in distress, his conclusions about remaining alone become a daily struggle.
The more the school teacher and the carpenter get to know one another, everything they had planned for their individual lives become a swirl of emotions that neither were equipped to handle easily. Sadie's position in Miller's Crossing could be jeopardized by the attention that Levi pays her, even the most innocent of attention. Levi's refusal to see what is immediately in front of him takes the reader on a journey of extreme satisfaction.
Talented author, Tracey J. Lyons has written a feel-good story, and I adore her for it. In the reality of turmoil and uncertainty, her ease at telling this comforting tale warms the soul. THE AMISH TEACHER'S WISH is timeless and rewarding. Getting to know Sadie, Levi, and the accompanying cast of characters is heartening and leaves a smile on your face. I highly recommend THE AMISH TEACHER'S WISH by Tracey J. Lyons.
