Book Review: Eventide

A young Amish woman harbors a difficult secret. Does she dare share the truth with the man she hopes to marry?

EventideElsie Keim doesn’t want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She’s still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman—all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoconus and is slowly going blind.

Elsie knows there’s much more to her than her disease. That’s why when a new neighbor, Landon Troyer, shows some interest in her, she doesn’t want anything to scare him away . . . even if it means keeping her condition a secret.

Landon is ready to start a new life and feels like Elsie may just be the right woman to start it with. But when Roman steps in and shares the truth about Elsie’s illness, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. How could he keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie?

This is the 3rd and last book in The Days of Redemption series, and finally it's Elsie's time to shine.  Elsie has always had a hard time getting the rest of her family to treat her like the rest and tries to act as if her eyesight is not getting worse.  She simply does not want to be treated like an invalid.

As in the past 2 books, there are still secrets, this family just can't keep from having secrets, they just don't seem to learn from past much like any other family.

The romance in this book is sweet and hopeful, since Elsie finally seems to be getting everything she has ever wanted, only time will tell...and that's all I'm going to say about this wonderful book!  Once again, you don't need to read the first two books to enjoy this one, but believe me, the characters will grow on you and you'll miss them once you finish the last page of the book.
