Publisher's Summary

An unrequited romance and a rare book....

Yvonne Wilson makes the trek from Texas to Indiana with just one goal in mind: to convince Amishman Jake Lantz to sell her client a rare book from his collection. But Jake is as strong-willed as Yvonne. On the eve of his grandfather’s death, Jake vowed never to sell the book, and he intends to keep that promise. But he can’t say more than that, having never read it and not knowing why it was so dear to his grossdaadi.

Eva Graber has loved Jake since he hired her to work in his bookstore years ago, but he doesn’t seem to notice she’s blossomed into a beautiful woman. When Yvonne shows up and seems like she might turn Jake’s eye, Eva suggests she and Jake should read the book together.

What happens after that surprises them all, and the book leads the trio deep into mysterious questions about life and death, love and loss, and the impenetrable purposes of God.

The Bookseller's Promise beautifully illustrates the power of love, family bonds, and the good news of the gospel.... A  captivating story of discovering faith and finding hope in the midst of despair.” (Jennifer Beckstrand, author of The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series)

Enjoyed

I enjoyed listening to this story. The friendships are so sweet. I was pleasantly surprised when the book finished and I wished for a continuation, only to find it is due for distribution in October!! Can’t wait for the next installment.

A Winner!

I started listening to Amish novels last year and have acquired quite the collection. Although I love them, after listening to so many they all start to sound the same, this one was different and I love that it had me laughing at times. It was a nice story, can’t wait for book II. Lauren Berst is one of my favorite narrators and she did an excellent job on this one!
