    One thought on “Never Far from Home”

    1. This is the second book in the: "Miller Family Series" and was just as wonderful as the first: "A Widow's Hope."In this second instalment we continue to follow the lives of Hannah and Seth Miller and Emma Miller, the eldest daughter of Julia and Seth Miller who is the county's Deacon in their old Amish order.Emma, an industrious, self-motivated young woman of sixteen announces to her parents that she wants to take her "full rumschpringe".

    2. Never Far from Home(Miller Family series)book#2,by Mary Ellisthis was a quick read and I loved the characters ,Emma Miller is a young girl of 16 and as most amish families do, she was a hard worker. She is about to leave her childhood and find many things that will make her feel "Out of sorts"ere is two brothers Seth and Simon and their wives that round out the story. One is a deacon and the father of Emma. Emma meets a young man who is a "Englisher" who she befriends when she learns he is a she [...]

    3. Another of the Amish Miller Family series, this second book was a continuation of the family and a nice addition to the story. I enjoyed this one.

    4. Wow! What a story!I have read dozens of Amish novels, but I love surprises — and this story definitely has some unique qualities about it…For example, Seth seems like an ordinary Amish widower when we meet him in A Widow’s Hope, but in Never Far From Home, we get a totally different idea of who he is — and how his life seems to be changing, since his marriage to Hannah.Yes, he’s following the Ordnung rules — and one of these rules speaks of living within your means and not planting m [...]

    5. This book was an excellent read! Mary Ellis is an incredible author; her books have never failed to move me emotionally.The story is about a young girl, Emma, who is yearning for someone to love. She unexpectedly finds that she has fallen in love with the one person she should not have anything to do with in accordance to her upbringing "an Englisher". Her father is the Deacon and he is very strict and harsh in the way he rules over the family. Emma knows her father will never accept James cour [...]

    6. From my blog[return]Never Far From Home is the second book in The Miller Family Series by Mary Ellis, and is a rather charming novel about Amish families and life along with their joys and troubles. Emma Miller has recently turned 16 and she has informed her parents she fully intends to take her year of Rumschpringe, much to the dismay of Simon and Julia. Emma's aunt Hannah has noticed her young niece pining after a young sheep farmer, the problem is James Davis is an Englischer. Hannah barely h [...]

    7. This Is A Great 'Amish Themed' Series With Some Nice Original Story Elements.Never Far From Home is a wonderful continuation of (The Miller Family Series). I loved both the first book ,A Widow's Hope,and this second book. I am just sorry that I do not have the third book"The Way To A Man's Heart" here and ready to read!I am very,very pleased with this author's skill at developing her characters and her ability to draw me into her stories.I liked that she explained the differences between the New [...]

    8. Though the storyline was pretty good I kept getting sidetracked by the inconsistencies with time and ages and personalities. One of the biggest personality changes from book one to book two was Seth. He and Simon seemed to switch stances between books on the corn issue. Simon was also a softer man. I would have liked to have access to his viewpoint more with the changes going on with his daughter like we saw with Hannah's story.I also would have liked to see a deeper relationship between Emma an [...]

    9. In Never Far From Home, Emma Miler is a 15 year old Old Order Amish young lady who has finished school and who has begun her own wool business by raising sheep, shearing them, dying the wool and weaving it, and then selling it. She is beginning to think of the "courting" she might do and her "running around" time.We have to remember that the Amish children do not typically attend school as long as non-Amish do. They assume adult responsibilities much younger as well.Mary Ellis weaves this story [...]

    10. I didn't read the first book in this series, because my local library didn't have it. I really enjoyed this story! I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. I liked Emma Miller & James Davis, JR, Hannah & Seth miller, Julia & Deacon Simon Miller, Joseph Kauffman & Mary, Sam Yoder & Sarah Hosetler. I was happy that Hannah finally was in the family way & her husband told her God would answer her prayers when the time was right. Sad how Seth's idea didn't w [...]

    11. At the beginning I was a little annoyed with the characters. I thought Emma was a bit of a suck up to her daed, and I wondered how her daed got things done in the fields because it seemed like all he did was look for things his kids were doing wrong. But the book got better after Emma turned 16, she got a little bit of an attitude, like most teenagers and stopped sucking up. All in all I liked it, but I didn't realize this was the second book in a series when I bought it. (I need to go read the [...]

    12. This second book in The Miller Family series continues Hannah's story and her young niece, Emma who has just started her "rumschpringe" as she finds herself enamored with an Englischer. She has started raising sheep like her Aunt, and James is a sheep farmer with a fast truck, and modern ways. An engaging story about waiting on God for His perfect timing and discovering that dreams planted close to home can grow a lasting harvest of hope and love.Just as good as the first book in this series, an [...]

    13. This is the second novel in the Miller Family Series by Mary Ellis. This author grew up close to an Ohio Amish Community, and this series is about a family of Amish who interact with "Englishers". In this one, the daughter of a family falls in love with an Englisher and the two of them have the resulting differences to overcome in order to have a relationship. A buggy accident alters the course of their lives, and the novel leaves readers waiting for #3 to continue the story. Very sweet, and mor [...]

    14. I read this on the KindleThis is the 2nd book in the series, i really enjoyed it & found it a good one not sure what they mean by Bangs when referring to something they do to their hair but i got the ideaEmma is the one the book mostly about but have the others from book 1 in it so you are reading about their life the ups & downs of life be you Amish or other wise i think we can all relate to some of their problems especially with having teenagers

    15. I really enjoyed this book. I liked how Emma grew from a teenager who wanted her way 'no matter what' into a young lady who was willing to put aside the desires of her heart in order to honour her father and mother. I also liked how Emma, James, Simon, Julia, Seth, and Hannah each learned to 'lean not unto [their] own understanding' and to trust in God's perfect timing.

    16. An Amish woman falls for an English sheep farmer. Her aunt wants a baby while the husband speculates on crop futures. Author Ellis weaves a tale that shows how faith and ability to follow god wishes tests the strength and ability to love. The characters come across as authentic and struggling with the decisions made.

    17. I loved it. Mary Ellis had my guessing/wondering what was going to happen in the book or how the book was going to end. Cant what to read the third book in the series.

    18. This was a great book and I could not put it down. I loved the different obsticals that were all a part of eachother and I liked seeing how they all ended up comming together in the end. I loved this book, and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

    19. This series is wonderful, It is a book you can't lay down until you are finished reading and then you are looking for the next book in the series.

    20. I really liked this book. It was not predictable like most and i felt like I was a part of the story and knew the characters. Can't wait to read #3

    21. What's not to love about Emma & James? This second book in Mary Ellis' series was equally as wonderful & ahh-inducing as the first one!A delightful Amish series :)

    22. Novel of a young Amish girl who falls in love with an Englisher. Not sure how realistic it is, but it was nice.
