Dave has been hired to find the famous Delilah from a book. He thinks he has seen her but a lot of things to consider. This is one of those books I have to be careful not to give any spoilers. I do recommend reading the book.
It is a fun book to read and a lot of surprises. The cinnamon rolls sound so good. I wish I could have one. I loved having a little boy in the story named Earl. He was so cute.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit. This book review is my own opinion.
About the Author
Thomas Nye writes novels about horses and Amish life, with a touch of romance, and a foundation of faith in Christ. He and his wife, Shari, live on her family farm where they raised five children. Their six grandchildren love to visit Karma and Karla, a team of draft horses which Thomas purchased from an Amish friend. Walking a mail route for the U.S. Postal Service keeps Thomas close to nature and affords him many quiet hours which he uses to dream up novels. Over three decades of friendships with Amish neighbors has revealed a simple wisdom that he weaves into his writing.
More from Thomas
Most authors agree that during the course of writing a novel, the characters seem to come alive and emerge with personality traits we ourselves didn’t originally plan to give them. Not only did the lead characters of Samson and Delilah take on a life of their own, they also pulled the story in a direction I never planned to go.
Samson and Amish Delilah is a book about a book. You will soon discover that the characters are reading along with you. They even try to guess the ending and have discussions about it. As I worked on the final few chapters, I could almost feel Samson and Delilah urging me forward, as though they needed me to write out solutions to the issues they were facing. I could almost hear them calling to me, “Please—finish this book—we want the world to hear our story.”
Maybe all of this is just me projecting my feelings on them. LOL. Either way, I’ve gotten to know Samson and Delilah pretty well and I’m sure they would want you to smile, laugh, cry, and learn about the power of forgiveness along with them.
P.S. It so happens that I feel Samson and Delilah nudging me forward with a follow-up novel. Wink, wink.
