Mary Ellis follows her captivating Widow's Hope with a new story from the heart of Holmes County, Ohio. In Never Far From Home, fifteen-year-old Emma Miller finishes school, starts her own wool business, and is longing for someone to court. When the object of her affection is a handsome English sheep farmer, with a fast truck and modern methods, her deacon father, Simon, knows he has more than the farm alliance to worry about.
Emma isn't the only one with longings in Holmes County. Her aunt Hannah wants a baby and her uncle Seth hopes he'll reap financial rewards when he takes a risk with his harvest. But are these the dreams God has for this Amish family? With engaging interactions and thoughtful characters, Ellis weaves a story about waiting for God's timing and discovering that the dreams planted close to home can grow a lasting harvest of hope and love.

This Is A Great 'Amish Themed' Series With Some Nice Original Story Elements
Never Far From Home is a wonderful continuation of (The Miller Family Series). I loved both the first book ,A Widow's Hope,and this second book. I am just sorry that I do not have the third book"The Way To A Man's Heart" here and ready to read!

I am very,very pleased with this author's skill at developing her characters and her ability to draw me into her stories.

I liked that she explained the differences between the New Order and Old Order Amish sects.

I live near this Amish area of Ohio,and I enjoy reading about the towns in these counties that I have visited.

I think part of what make this series so good is that the author writes such believable situations and how she includes the characters we have come to know into each book,where in too many series we never see some of the characters we enjoy,ever mentioned again in succeeding books.

I really enjoyed watching the romance develop between a Non-Amish hunk James and Amish teen Emma Miller,and also the romance between her friend and fellow Old Order teen Sarah and an Amish friend of James' Sam, who is from the New Order Sect.

I also very much enjoyed the side stories and getting to know Emma's siblings and their stories.

This is a book that was very hard to put down and I found myself picking it up every chance I got.
