As World War II draws to a close, nurse Christine falls in
love with roguish Amish boy Eli and must choose between a
new, uncertain life in the Amish faith or face the judgment
of a conservative postwar American society for her past
Itâ€™s 1945, and Christine Freeman is a nurse at Hudson River
State Hospital, where she works alongside members of a
Civilian Public Service unit. Eli is one of the
consciesâ€”conscientious objectors to the warâ€”and he is doing
his best to become a man of character instead of the
immature heartbreaker he used to be back home in his Amish
Christine and Eli are friendly, but when an old
acquaintance, Jack, returns home from the war, Christineâ€™s
world is violently turned upside down. Eli, heartbroken to
see his friend so hurt, offers her an escape within his
Amish community. Despite her misgivings, Christine is fully
embraced by Eliâ€™s community. She slowly begins to feel
valued and loved as she learns the Amish way of life.
Christine finds herself falling for Eli. But soon, the
abusive Jack discovers Christine in her Amish hideaway and
starts causing trouble for the quiet community. Christine
canâ€™t see herself becoming Amish, and she knows that if Eli
leaves the church to be with her, he will be shunned. Will
she escape Jack and possibly have to give up the one thing
she holds most dear, or will she follow her heart and
promise to cherish the Amish man who loves her?

Re: Promise to Cherish
My Father served in the Army during WWII. Any books that
pertain to that time period automatically peak my curiosity.
When they have to do with the Amish, my radar goes up even
further. I had no idea that the Amish had to work in the
mental institutions, which had to be no easy task for them
during that time!! I would love to read your book, and it's
definately been put on my TBR list for my Fall reading!!
When you add a love story to the mix, it's way up there on
my reading list!! Thank you for taking the time to write
your Mammie's memoir, and share it with us. It's a
wonderful thing to keep History alive!!

My family is old order Mennonite, and while I'm not a member of their church, I find that type of lifestyle so interesting. I love reading about it!
