The Bishop's Son by Kelly Irvin

★★★★★
Two men offer Leila two very different futures. Will she choose with her heart or with her faith?

Leila Lantz has been in love with Jesse Glick from the day she first saw him at his father’s store, but she can’t make sense of his intentions. One day he wants to come courting, the next he seems to be putting distance between them.

Jesse may be the bishop’s son, but his faith has been wavering of late. If he is so unsure, is it fair to give Leila false hope for a future he doubts he can provide?

Then there’s Will, Jesse’s cousin. He has been trying to keep his feelings for Leila a secret, but he also knows Jesse is wrestling with his faith. Would declaring his feelings for Leila be in her best interest or simply serving his own selfish desires?

Leila knows she can choose Will and be secure in her own future. But when her heart speaks, it’s Jesse’s name she hears. When will God make His will known to her? Could leaving everything she knows – even her own faith – be a part of God’s plan?

Kelly Irvin returns to Bee County in The Bishop’s Son for another delightful Amish romance. Leila Lantz, the younger sister of The Beekeeper’s Son’s heroine, Deborah, stars in this novel, as two different yet capable men take interest and vie for her affections. She has a number of very difficult choices to make, involving her faith, family, future and feelings. As Leila struggles to make the best choices and weighs the impact of her different options, The Bishop’s Son tells an enjoyable story with diverse characters and offers a great read to fans of Amish fiction - and The Beekeeper’s Son in particular.
