The English Son is part one of six in the Amish Millionaire series. We are introduced to the Byler Family in which there is a widowed father, three daughters and their families and a son that has turned English. Joel has left his family for the world and making lots of money is all that's mainly on his mind. He has bought something he's always wanted and over spent to the point where he can't pay his bills and has approached his father once again for a "loan". His father has allowed oil companies on his land and it has made him a millionaire but he still lives a very simple Amish life and still grieving the loss of his wife.
The story pulled me in and had me right there with them. The chapters switched from Joel and his separate life to the father and daughters and their lives. I was thankful for a diagram of the Byler family tree in the front of the book that showed the names of the family members and which sister they belonged to. That helped me keep them straight as I read. There's a big cliffhanger at the end and I'm anxiously awaiting the next installment Stubborn Father that releases April 1st.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review, which I have given. I received no monetary compensation.
