 I just knew I was going to like and enjoy reading "Samson & Amish Delilah" by Thomas Nye, but I was pleasantly please to find that I really had no idea how much that was going to be true! I wholeheartedly recommend this book!

It has surprising twists and turn.  This whole book plot is about a fictional character that turns out to be a real person. And just so happens that this character is Amish and that is why this book is so fantastic.

This book is a tale of forgiveness and a second chance at love.

The ending makes me want a sequel. I want to know how the rest of Samson &Amish Delilah's story ends!

The author does say  in the preface that this story wasn't written as a children's story and that it deals with a tough subject matter and that some parents might want to read this novel before passing it on to a young teen but I would let my granddaughters read this book if they would because I think it is more appropriate than some books that are out there that teens are readying today!

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

About the Author
ThomasThomas Nye writes novels about horses and Amish life, with a touch of romance, and a foundation of faith in Christ. He and his wife, Shari, live on her family farm where they raised five children. Their six grandchildren love to visit Karma and Karla, a team of draft horses which Thomas purchased from an Amish friend. Walking a mail route for the U.S. Postal Service keeps Thomas close to nature and affords him many quiet hours which he uses to dream up novels. Over three decades of friendships with Amish neighbors has revealed a simple wisdom that he weaves into his writing.

More from Thomas

Most authors agree that during the course of writing a novel, the characters seem to come alive and emerge with personality traits we ourselves didn’t originally plan to give them. Not only did the lead characters of Samson and Delilah take on a life of their own, they also pulled the story in a direction I never planned to go.
Samson and Amish Delilah is a book about a book. You will soon discover that the characters are reading along with you. They even try to guess the ending and have discussions about it. As I worked on the final few chapters, I could almost feel Samson and Delilah urging me forward, as though they needed me to write out solutions to the issues they were facing. I could almost hear them calling to me, “Please—finish this book—we want the world to hear our story.”
Maybe all of this is just me projecting my feelings on them. LOL. Either way, I’ve gotten to know Samson and Delilah pretty well and I’m sure they would want you to smile, laugh, cry, and learn about the power of forgiveness along with them.

P.S. It so happens that I feel Samson and Delilah nudging me forward with a follow-up novel. Wink, wink.
