There are so many extreme emotions from love, jealousy & almost hate. Jacob Sauder left his Amish home lived in the English world. He had relations with more than one woman. He decides to visit one of them & finds out she died giving birth to twins, Aaron & Emma. He decides since he's a single parent he wants them brought up Amish where he grew up. The love of his life Rachael while he left mad, had married his brother Simon. Simon has always resented Jacob. Once married to Rachael he did not treat her as a loving & kind husband at home. On their wedding night he broke her arm.
On the day Jacob returned he walked into Sunday service where his brother Simon was made a Deacon. So much more happens to the end. If you're emotional have a tissue ready. This was one of the best Amish books I have read.

I'd really want to give this one 2.5 stars. It was an okay read, but that was about it.

First off, if you read Amish stuff because you like the clean and sweet factor, skip this. (I realize it's labeled sensual Amish historical, but I'd say it's a little stronger than that.) The sex scenes were okay, but to be honest, I sort of skimmed them.

There's also a heavy storyline with the heroine being abused by her husband - physically, emotionally, and with him forcing her to have sex with him. While the sex in those scenes is not explicit, the force is. Gaslighting is not too strong a word for any of his actions. The whole part where no one was willing to really do anything against the husband was also depressing. I get period/culture appropriateness, but...not my choice for reading.

It's very melodramatic. The whole forbidden relationship thing kind of wore thin as the book went on, and I feel like the scene in which the heroine says of her husband that she had never heard him laugh before, and her father bursts out with "why did you marry him, then?" pretty much sums things up.

I liked the end, even if a little too pat.

This is a warm, heart-tugging story of real humans who need - and find - real redemption. It exudes humanity. Yes, there are some sexual scenes in it, and it is a great joy to read a story about God's love, living His way, sin, and forgiveness that no more flinches from sex than it does from any other human emotion. It covers the entire range. The ending left me in tears. I am very glad I read it. I don't give it five stars only because the author's writing style is not as smooth as it could be, but that didn't stop me from reading and being blessed by it.

This is a compelling story, well-written. It gives you enough information about their way of life (1885 Pennsylvania Amish) but does not get bogged down in every little minute detail, like some books do. As the story progresses you are kept wondering how it will turn out. Will something happen to Simon so that Rachel and Jacob can be together? Or will Simon see the error of his ways and become a changed man so that he and Rachel can be happy together? Will Jacob marry another and find happiness, remaining friends with Rachel?

Some other reviews complained about "graphic sex". There are a couple of intimate scenes. They are written tastefully and touching, and using the language of 1885 Pennsylvania Amish. (Which is kind of funny if you are used to reading the hot and steamy erotica of today. I am not saying the love scenes are funny in any way, just that the language used to describe them is so gentle and innocent!)

This is a good book, I really enjoyed it.

Set in 1881, an Amish community in Pennsylvania. Very well-edited, and very readable! Published as "Thee I Love" in 1999, this novel was reissued with this new title. Some would not consider this "Christian literature," and the author issues warnings that tell us it was not meant to be. I found this story to be very rich with characters, life events, story line. It felt very true-to-life, with flawed and complex individuals that were painted with depth and completeness. This story deals with love, tenderness, family, community support, loss, joy and sadness, grief, forgiveness, and redemption. Also, key to this story are deceit, emotional suffering, domestic violence, and mental illness. This story encompasses the positive and negative about its very human characters and this Amish community -- and every degree in between. Not just about 2 or 3 main characters, it's very much about the network of complex family and community relationships. The ending was surprising and gratifying. Easily one of my favorite Amish novels. The great editing made it a pleasure to read.

Annette Blair's writing reminds me somewhat of the intensity of LaVeryl Spencer's books. She sucks you in, and when you fall in love with her characters, she pulls the rug out from under you.

Some reviewers chastized Ms Blair as being too sensual, and said they would not read her anymore. Well, that's their loss. I don't like the intimate scenes either when they are not necessary, but I think most of her's added to the telling of the story. Sex sells, and writers need to eat, so If you don't like the scenes just skip them and go on with the story.

This is the second book that I have read by Ms. Blair, and it certainly will not be the last. This was a beautiful story about beautiful people, inside and out. It spoke to my heart.

I was so intrigued by the short excerpt of this book that I bought and read it immediately even though I was in the middle of another one which I stopped reading to start this one. I was not disappointed! The characters came alive for me. There were surprises all along the way, including the ending. It takes the reader into a glimpse of the Amish people with much respect. I beg to differ with a couple of the reviewers who thought there were steamy explicit sexual scenes. Contrarily, I thought they were described in good taste without being too explicit. I do think the author sometimes used superfluous descriptions, but overall, this is an excellent read.
