The Way to a Man's Heart
Mary Ellis (A Widow’s Hope and Never Far from Home) concludes her bestselling The Miller Family series with another engaging story set in Holmes County, Ohio.
Leah Miller is living her dream come true as she invests in a newly restored diner that caters to locals rather than tourists. Can Jonah Byler convince this shy, quiet young woman that she should leave her adoring fans and cook only for him?
Leah’s sister, Emma, is trying to adapt to married life as New Order Amish along with her husband, James, who gave up his Englischer ways to make Emma his bride. Will his commitment to Emma and to God stand firm when temptations from his past come to call?
Ellis offers readers another captivating novel filled with strong characters and a loving look at how faith in God and connection with family can fill to overflowing an open, waiting heart.
“The conclusion to the Miller Family trilogy is filled with hope, romance and strong faith in the Amish way of life. Ellis is a creative storyteller whose firsthand knowledge of Amish traditions is readily apparent.”
“What a great story! I've never read Mary Ellis before, but this book shows what a great author she is. So many unexpected things happened in this book, it sure kept me on (my) toes. I highly recommend it.”
“The third Miller Family saga is a wonderful warm Amish contemporary tale.”
—The Midwest Book Review
“The author, Ellis, has the ability to put her readers in the middle of the action, while also providing a sense of the Amish culture.”
“All of Mary Ellis' books are great...I was searching for any spare moment to read about Leah and Emma. I look forward to more books from Mary Ellis.”
“The Way to a Man’s Heart is a story of love and forgiveness as well as some hard lessons in growing up. Mix this with a little intrigue and inspiration and you get a story that keeps your interest and has you guessing until the end. Ms. Ellis’ knowledge of Amish life gives the reader realistic insights into their culture and her characters are people you’d want to become friends with.”
“All the characters in this book are very well-developed, making me care for them, and what happens to them…Don’t miss The Way to a Man's Heart.”
“Ellis offers readers another captivating novel filled with strong characters and a loving look at how faith in God and connection with family can fill to overflowing an open, waiting heart.”
“…like a good mix, the story enfolds the different elements of characters and faith into a satisfying dessert.”
“I love Amish books. These are so interesting; I can't wait until the next one is published about The Miller Family Series. I have read the first two. Waiting on the third.”
“I was excited to begin reading The Way to a Man's Heart. I have read all of the other books by Mary Ellis, and could hardly put them down until they were finished. This book was no exception. I loved it! Mary's insight into the Amish community is very educational for those of us who have not been acquainted with those traditions and beliefs. The story line of all of the characters is quite interesting as Mary brings each of them to life. Once again, thanks to Mary for sharing your talent. I can't wait for the next one!”
“I have read every book in The Miller Family Series and as always, was sad to reach the last page. I never tire of Mary Ellis' charming style of writing and the unique way each book intertwines the characters. I love how Mary's characters enjoy living the Amish lifestyle when so many other books tell stories of how they want to become English. A great relaxing read!”
Endorsements“As a non-fiction reader of the historical and biographical kind, I recommend Mary Ellis' Miller Family Series book The Way to a Man's Heart. Although fictional it is a window into the real life of the Amish community, is fast paced and gives insight to the struggles and decisions we all face—Amish and English.”
“If you can't go on a vacation this year, try reading Mary Ellis's The Way to a Man's Heart instead… a great way to unwind this summer!”
—Mary K. Johnson, Lutheran Church of Guam
“What a good story line. I was so disappointed that this is the last book in the series! What can we do to convince Mary Ellis to tell us more about this family? I want more.”
—Donna Taylor, retired school teacher
“I have read every one of Mary Ellis' books from The Miller Family Series, and The Way to a Man's Heart is no exception to Mary's superb quality of writing. Mary has a way of crafting riveting relationships between her characters. It was hard to put the book down because I couldn't wait to find out how things would work out for Leah in the end. The worst part was that when I finally got to the end, there was nothing left to read!”
