The Bishop's Son (The Amish of Bee County) by Kelly Irvin (Author)

Book Description:  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?

My Thoughts:  Ah!  Here's an Amish story that takes place in Bee County, Texas!  Amish in Texas!  A sweet western Amish story!
 It seems that Leila Lantz has always loved Jesse Glick but he doesn't seem to know his own intentions.  He comes courting one week and then the next week he puts distance between them...it's enough to make a young woman doubt a man's love.
Then there's Will, Jesse's cousin.  Will has kept his feelings to himself but he is in love with Leila.  
Will knows that Jesse is struggling with his faith.  He also doesn't think that Jesse is "fair" to Leila.  But what to do?  Will is a true blue friend and also a true friend. But sometimes when the heart speaks one must follow his heart.
Meanwhile Leila's heart seems to only speak Jesse's name. 
But as only God can He makes Leila to know who her true love is. 
This an Amish love story of one young woman with two suitors and just one true decision to make.
This a great Amish love story!
