Tyler Anderson was a military kid and when his mother passed away his 6-year-old life changed forever. With his dad’s assignments, he couldn’t take care of a kid so he asked his in-laws, who happen to be Amish, to take care of the boy until he comes home. But at age 23, Tyler still lives with his Amish grandparents and has been raised Amish. Then the chance comes for Tyler to visit his dad as well as his dad's other family. And his time in California is what it takes for Tyler to really find himself and discover where he belongs.

I loved Tyler’s story in The Amish Groom. Mindy Starnes Clark and Susan Meissner do a fantastic job weaving together the Amish lifestyle with the California lifestyle and writing a great story. My heart went out to Tyler throughout the story because of the way his dad treated him, even remarrying and having another son. But this second son had the chance to grow up with his dad, a chance that the dad didn’t give Tyler. And I can say that I was not happy with this military rich dad because he really acted like a jerk. But the story does end well, and that is all I am going to say because you need to read the book to find out what happened. If you enjoy Amish stories, this is one you must check out. Ms. Starnes and Ms. Meissner give the story a few twists that will have you wondering and keeping your nose in the book. You just can’t go wrong with The Amish Groom.
