  • Third book in series!

    Priscilla’s Escape by Diane Carver is the third story in The Bishop’s Daughters. Priscilla King is nineteen years old and has yet to join the Amish church. She loves to paint and has an opportunity to spend the summer in Florida which allow her to paint the ocean. Madison Wittenberg has offered Priscilla a job as nanny to her daughter while they spend the summer in Siesta Key. Priscilla wants to go, but her father is against the idea. He feels she is spending too much time painting and wishes her to quit for the summer. Amos King has a secret from his past that he has not shared with his family. When it comes out, it will surprise the family and explain his behavior. When Priscilla’s parents sabotage her job at the fabric store, she searches for a way to get to Florida. Stephen Hertzler is also unsure about being baptized and has purchased a car to enjoy during his rumspringa. He would prefer that Priscilla not go to Florida and worries that she will meet someone else while she is away. When Priscilla’s best friend, Hannah is needed in Pinecraft to help relatives with their bed and breakfast, Priscilla’s plan comes together. She sneaks out early one morning leaving a note behind for her family. Priscilla does not want to upset her parents, but she cannot pass up the opportunity to paint the ocean. What does the summer hold for Priscilla? Priscilla’s Escape is nicely written with steady pacing and smooth transitions. I recommend reading the books in The Bishop’s Daughters series in order. I have not read the previous books and I felt I was missing important information. Characters and situations from the other books are mentioned in Priscilla’s Escape. We get to follow Priscilla and Stephen on a journey in Priscilla’s Escape. They both have important decisions to make about their futures. Once they are baptized, they are bound by the rules of their faith. It was nice to see them grow as individuals and in their faith. I enjoyed the descriptions of Pinecraft and Siesta key along with Priscilla’s artwork. Some of the Christian themes include pride, faith and the importance of prayer. There is scripture included that suits the various situations in the book. I like how Priscilla states her art is how she strives “to honor God” and how she feels close to Him while painting. I laughed when it was mentioned that in Florida caffeinated beverages are called soda and in Ohio they are called pop. People frequently corrected me when we first moved to Florida from Columbus, Ohio. Priscilla’s Escape has a heartwarming ending that wraps up the various storylines. There is a recipe for German pizza included. Priscilla’s Escape is perfect for younger audiences (the teens in your life). Priscilla’s Escape is a sweet, uplifting Amish romance.

    Thanks for your feedback!
