The English Son is the first of a six-part series from The Amish Millionaire by Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter. Joel Byler could not resist buying his sports car, even though he knew it would put him heavily into debt, and unable to purchase an engagement ring for his fiancée, Kristi Palmer. Kristi, who is a Christian, does not know why Joel is frustrated and she wonders why he has suddenly become aloof with her. Joel reluctantly visits his father whom he has not seen for a while to ask for money. However, his father refuses to give his reckless son anymore financial assistance, especially since he turned his back on them and their Amish faith. This angers Joel, who decides to return home when an accident occurs.

I was disappointed that The English Son, Part 1 was such a short read, but what an ending! It is a charming Christian Amish story by authors Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter. Readers will get to know more about the Dutch-German language, and the Amish customs versus “English” as the former refers to us. The romance between Joel and Kristi is slightly testy since both are from different religious sects and do not readily agree with the other’s principles. The authors’ writing reflect their strong knowledge of the Amish culture, and the story is wonderfully written with an attractive cover illustration. The Amish Millionaire, Part 1 of 6: The English Son is from a series that looks very promising to read.
