Today I am reviewing Amish Park, a novel by Thomas Nye.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Pete Heller and his wife Lisa are successful in their careers but have failed in love and marriage.
Their oldest daughter, Carrie, is sixteen and has already succumbed to a bitter heart, a byproduct of a dysfunctional family.
Ten-year-old Natalie is the only family member that hasn’t “fallen” from innocence and she has one last hope to rescue her loved ones from the dark direction they are headed, a broken home.
A theme park, called Amish Park, that her friend’s family visited and loved, seems like the solution to her. Amish Park is a paid tourist destination that offers modern families an opportunity to “live” the Amish lifestyle for one week.
Pete and Lisa reluctantly agree to visit, both thinking that this would be their last family vacation together. They had no idea that God had other plans…
I was excited to read about a tourist destination called Amish Park… it sounded like something I would love to visit, although honestly, I’d rather visit the real thing.
This is a quick read, but the story has everything it needs to be a great story!
The Heller family is in trouble, but they’re exactly where they need to be to get help. They adapt quickly to the Amish lifestyle and find themselves working harder than they expected to keep up with the resident family. Will they make it till the end–or will they give up? You just may be in for a surprise or two…
Read the story and find out for yourself. By the time you finish it, you’ll be wanting to plan a vacation with an Amish family, too!
