About the Book: A young Amish woman harbors a difficult secret. Does she dare share the truth with the man she hopes to marry?
Elsie Keim doesn’t want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She’s still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman-all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoconus and is slowly going blind.
Elsie knows there’s much more to her than her disease. That’s why when a new neighbor, Landon Troyer, shows some interest in her, she doesn’t want anything to scare him away . . . even if it means keeping her condition a secret.
Landon is ready to start a new life and feels like Elsie may just be the right woman to start it with. But when Roman steps in and shares the truth about Elsie’s illness, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. How could he keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie?
My Review: Book three in the Days of Redemption series doesn’t disappoint. After getting a hint of the struggles Elsie Keim suffers in the previous books of the series it’s nice to delve into Elsie’s life and find out if she has a chance at romance. Readers will swoon over the wonderful new character Landon. So nice and sweet he sees past Elsie’s glasses and loves everything about her. He works past Elsie’s overbearing family and brings something new and exciting to her life. At times Elsie’s family is hard to take and her brother Roman, so nice in book two, almost destroys what Elsie feels may be her only chance at happiness.
We also get to wrap up the back story of Peter back from rehab and his wife Marie along with Lovina and Aaron and their past lives being laid to rest. Viola prepares for life as a missionary wife (yes some Amish do missionary work) and as obnoxious as Roman is about Elsie we’re also treated to his life with new wife Amanda and her little girl.
Eventide won’t disappoint as a finale for the Days of Redemption.
