The First Love

Full Product Description

  • Love the escape Amish fiction affords?
  • This moving story follows the free-spirited Maggie Esh
  • The First Love reminds you of what is truly important in life

Beverly Lewis returns with an enjoyable and moving story set in 1950s Amish communities. Set amidst a wave of tent meetings in the area, The First Love is a story of finding love and acceptance.

It’s summer. The sun is beating down, and the younger women of Lancaster County are out and about, looking for love in the prime of life. But Maggie Esh isn’t like the other girls. Despite her charming temperament and uncommon beauty, Maggie is held back by her illness. She is treated in a friendly manner, but rarely more. She looks around and sees all the others living the life dreams of.

Maggie is looking for love, but Maggie needs hope.

When a tent revival meeting pitches up in Lancaster County, Maggie is challenged to reconsider everything she thought she knew about faith.

Can Maggie learn to trust in God, when sometimes it seems all she has ever known is disappointment?

A story that will connect with readers at a heart level, The First Love by Beverly Lewis is a moving story of learning to trust in God and seek Him above all.

Publisher's Description

Jah, that was undeniably a difficult time, one that opened my eyes in countless ways. And my heart, most of all. It was a season of sorrow and searching, of questions and answers.

It was the summer of my first love.

It's the summer of 1951, and Maggie Esh is in need of some hope. Sweet-spirited and uncommonly pretty despite struggling with illness, she is used to being treated kindly by the young men of her Old Order Amish church district. Yet Maggie wishes she were more like other courting-age girls so she could live a normal, healthy life. When tent revival meetings come to the area, the words of the preacher cause her to reconsider what she knows about faith. Can she learn to trust God even when hope seems a distant dream?
