Eventide by Shelley Shepard Gray *Review
Honest and faithful Elsie Keim falls for her new neighbor, Landon, but she can’t bear to tell him the truth: She’s going blind.
Landon is enamored with Elsie. When Elsie’s brother Roman steps in and shares the truth of Elsie’s disease, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. He wonders how he’d be able to keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie.
In Eventide, three generations of the Keim family come together to make their dreams come true.
Shelley Shepard Gray, bestselling author of the Sisters of the Heart books, draws her Days of Redemption trilogy to a heart-warming finish.
This was the third book in the series and I have not read the first or second. I think I would have enjoyed more of the back story if I had. I will be adding those to my TBR pile!
Shelley Shepard Gray is a new voice to me in the Amish fiction genre. I very much loved how she tackled a severe medical issue kertoconus (leads to blindness), that I had not even heard about before. Often times I find that Amish fiction novels just have mild things that they deal with as the conflict. I know that they deal with much more than we tend to think, the same diseases affect them as they do us. If made the story feel more real with this struggle that they were dealing with.
