Lenny is a thoughtful and kind young man who is trying to discover just who he is in the world. While staying with his Amish Uncle Noey and Aunt Ruth, Lenny begins to wonder about his “English” ways and wrestles with whether or not to remain in the close-knit Amish community with extended family or go back to his more modern ways of living.
This is the second book from Thomas Nye that I’ve read, having read and loved Whispering to Horses. I was not disappointed with Book 3. The author has a simple, yet profound way of telling his stories. I particularly liked reading the Acknowledgements section at the beginning of the book. The author’s books truly are a family affair.
I enjoyed the plot and characters in English River immensely. If you’re looking for a touching coming of age tale, then you’ll enjoy this book. A wonderful, wholesome read. Thanks to Book Crash and the publisher for providing a complimentary copy of this book.
