Where Love Grows
In Jerry Eicher’s conclusion to his popular Fields of Home trilogy, readers will be delighted to attend the wedding of Teresa, the young Englisha girl who has come home with Susan Hostetler to learn the ways of the Amish---and in fact to become Amish herself.
But Teresa is not the only young woman to find romance in these pages. Susan, long estranged from Thomas Stoll, the young man she had intended to marry from her childhood, reunites with him….just as another man appears on the scene with designs on her heart. Which man is the one Da Hah has chosen for her?
Amidst the happiness, there is also turmoil as Menno Hostetler, Susan’s father, must face church discipline for a past sinful transgression he’s hidden for many years. At his age, can he endure the humiliation and the path to restitution?
With more than 350,000 books sold, Jerry Eicher’s many fans eagerly anticipate each new novel that offers readers a peek into the simple and interesting world of the Amish—a world Jerry knows firsthand.
Book Three in the Fields of Home series
“There were a few twists in this story that I didn’t expect. I found the ending very satisfying.”
“I loved the way all of the storylines were handled, twined together and wrapped up in the end.”
“I just want to say this is one of those books that once you start reading it, you definitely can’t put it down. It will grab you from start to the end.”
“This is a great wrap-up for Susan’s story…definitely pick this one up.”
“I recall when I read my first book by [Jerry Eicher] that I was impressed that a man could write such wonderful romantic tales! This book is no let down”!
“Fans of Mr. Eicher’s books will love Susan.”
“Jerry Eicher interprets hard issues facing the Amish church for his readers with grace and sensitivity. The issue of the bann, or excommunication, has always been a difficult one within the Amish community and nearly impossible for those of us outside the church to understand. Eicher remains unique among writers of Amish books in his insider’s view of this fascinating culture, but that’s not the only reason to enjoy his books. He weaves a story that never fails to please!”
“…another wonderful book by author Jerry Eicher.”

“You will love the way the story unfolds and the way it ends.”

“Where Love Grows was a book I was looking forward to but sad to get to 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.”
“This concluding book of the Fields of Home trilogy neatly gathered the separate stories and ended them in a completely satisfying way. You fall in love with the characters and root for them as their lives unfold. Each book of the trilogy is capable of standing alone, and yet the three together are a wonderful story of people you wish you knew. Highly recommended!”
“What a marvelous continuation of the story and further development of all our favorite characters who were present in the earlier books. Jerry continues to give us great insight into the Amish lifestyle and way of life. Since he comes from that background, it is accurate and his books are filled with details and facts. Another five star book!”
“A very enjoyable story—this kept me interested and I read late into the night not putting the book down until I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I would encourage those of you that like Amish books to read this series.”
