Eventide by Shelley Shepard Gray

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

By Shelley Shepard Gray
Genre: Christian Fiction
Type: Trade Paperback
ISBN: 978006220448
Published: September 3, 2013
Series: The Days of Redemption #3
4 out of 5 Stars

Synopsis:   A young Amish woman harbors a difficult secret. Does she dare share the truth with the man she hopes to marry?
Elsie Keim doesn't want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She's still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman-all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoconus and is slowly going blind.
Elsie knows there's much more to her than her disease. That's why when a new neighbor, Landon Troyer, shows some interest in her, she doesn't want anything to scare him away . . . even if it means keeping her condition a secret.
Landon is ready to start a new life and feels like Elsie may just be the right woman to start it with. But when Roman steps in and shares the truth about Elsie's illness, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. How could he keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie?

My review: Eventide is the last book in the Days of Redemption series and does a very good job of wrapping up the series as a whole. I felt so bad for Elsie throughout this book. Even though she is a strong women I felt as her struggles with her illness were sad as well as the the way her family felt about her illness and all she wants is to be normal, have a man love her and have a family. I feel Shelley did such a great job developing this character that you can't help but love her. This whole story is full of so many emotions but such a good read that you will read it all in one weekend. I think you should check out the whole series and connect with each of the characters and don't forget to check out the bonus pages in the back of the book.
