Review: The English Son
`The English Son` is an Amish/Mennonite book written by Wanda and Jean Brunstter. This book is part one of a six-part series. The male protagonist, Joel, reminds me of the prodigal son. He spends all his inheritance. Will the son see the view from his father and go back before it's too late? It is necessary to read these books in order. Because where one book ends, leaving the reader hanging, the other picks up.
With the sale of Joel's first product he bought a $200,000 car. He was deceitful to his girlfriend, Kristi. He hid the car from her, which didn't bother him much. Joel is smart, good-looking, and a successful business man. But,he is not a Christian. The job he thought he had, fell through. Now he is having to rustle up some money to pay his bills. Joel had left the Amish way to live as an Englisher. Does he want to return to his Amish family? Will his family accept him after all his lying and conniving?
The story begins in Akron, Ohio, with a wonderful family tree at the beginning of the book. I have read other books by Wanda Brunstetter, and find the all of good reading quality.
This is a great story. But, I didn't like to be left hanging.
Question: Would it be better to date someone who has lots of resources, or someone who loves you but has few resources?
