Samson & Amish Delilah By Thomas Nye

I received this book for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:

Everyone in America has fallen in love with Delilah, leading lady in a bestselling Amish novel. When media giants discover that Delilah is a real person, the pursuit is on. Dave joins the search not realizing that by finding her, he would fall into the story and become Samson.

My Thoughts:

Samson and Amish Delilah is the latest story by Thomas Nye. This book is unique and fantastic. As a fan of Amish Fiction this book really drew my attention. This is the first book by Thomas Nye I have had the pleasure of read and I am hooked. Through Thomas Nye's writing you can feel his passion for writing, the Amish, and horses. I love horses, always have and I loved learning more about them in this story. I found this book very unique in that it is a story inside a story. Thomas Nye's smooth transitions between the stories are seamless and definitely made it more interesting.  The characters in this book are realistic and well written. I loved the characters in this book especially Delilah. Delilah's faith and care are admirable, and so is the learning she does about forgiveness of yourself and by God. I love the cover art, it's simply and says so much. I found myself unable to put down this book from start to finish. Definitely kept me on my toes and guessing until the end. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction, you will NOT be disappointed. I cannot wait to read Thomas Nye's other books. I give this book 5 STARS.

About the Author

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