    1. Yes, I have read book two and now book three in time I will get back to book one when it becomes available at our library. But this book is great – I love it a bit more than the second in terms of relationship in this one there is a health issue involved. Elsie who may lose her eyesight has always been handled without getting her input first. Finally she decided to speak up and this is when the story really became interesting for me in terms of her taking ownership for her feelings and needs. [...]


    2. At first glance you would never know, other than the thick glass she wears, that Elie Keim was near blind. She desires to be as independent as her twin sister and her brother. They both have found their soul mates but if her family has anything to do with it she will become the blind alt madeal that will be forever dependent on her family. What the family isn't aware of is Elsie prays for a life with her own home, husband and children. She dares not discuss this with anyone. Until Landon Troyer, [...]

    4. MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOKWow, what an awesome finish to The Days of Redemption Series. The Keim family certainly had their share of troubles, and this is one thing I really appreciate about Ms Gray writing this series, because it is so realistic and the issues are things we all face in everyday life. The family has secrets that are revealed, the three Keim siblings didn’t date and marry in the usual way of the Amish, but all of these things made the family stronger in the end. Most of this book [...]


    5. I thought that this was the best book in this series. I really enjoyed it. I especially liked how strong and independent Elsie was, or wanted to be. Because of her eyesight, her family tried to shelter her and protect her. She wanted to live her life just like her siblings. Finally, the family comes to realize that Elsie needs to make her own decisions, especially when Landon wants to court her. But when Elsie's doctor gives her some options, will she push everyone away with her decision. Also, [...]


    6. It's funny, as soon as I realized that this final book in this trilogy was about the sister with the eye problems I was super excited to read it. What's funny is that this was the book I enjoyed the least. While I enjoyed the sub plots with the other family members in the first two books, in this one it seemed to take up too much space. Like there was more going on with that and the romance between Elsie and Landon almost felt like a side thing at times. (view spoiler)[I also found the whole "I' [...]


    7. I have read this on the kindle While this book sort of completes the series in as much as the 3 Keim children there is a 4th book Which is a Christmas one apart from Lovina being mentioned not sure how much they will be in it This book is a good one as it more about Elise & what she is feeling & think regarding her failing eye sight You also learn about Lovina & Aaron's past with finding out how their son Peter & his wife Marie are doing So for the most part you find out about wh [...]


    8. Finally an Amish novel that is not so innocent that it does not come across as real life. I am jumping in at the end of this series though so missed out on the first two books. Even with that issue Eventide by Shelley Shepard Gray delivered a full story line that stands on its own. This was a great look at how to handle a disability with love and hope. Not looking at what one can not do but at all the abilities a person has learned. Good job!


    9. Loved this book. Shelley kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to see what was going to happen. Wonderfully written and a must read for all.


    10. Roman is a DICK in this book and goes against all the characterization set up in the first two books. I'm honestly surprised Elsie didn't run that jerkbag over with a cow.



    11. About the Book: A young Amish woman harbors a difficult secret. Does she dare share the truth with the man she hopes to marry? Elsie Keim doesn’t want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She’s still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman—all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoco [...]


    12. There is something bittersweet that happens when a really great series of novels comes to a close in the final book and Eventide by best-selling author Shelley Shepard Gray is no exception. In her Days of Redemption series, we have followed the Keim family through a series of trials facing them as both Amish and English converts to the faith. In this conclusion to the series, Eventide wraps up some of the lingering questions that have plagued the family since the beginning. Elise Keim is a twin [...]


    13. The first scenes of Shelly Shepard Gray’s Eventide brought back the day I received my first pair of glasses. I was ten years old. As I walked out of the eye doctor’s office with my new specs, the world looked sharp and clear and beautiful—especially the leaves on the trees, which had once taken the form of a giant green blob.That’s close to how Elsie Keim feels when she receives her glasses. Unfortunately, the feeling does not last long, because Elsie has keratoconus, a condition that is [...]


    14. Elsie Keim feels that life is passing her by. While her siblings have found love, she is still at home and is not expected to leave. Her family continues to treat her like a child because of her progressive eye disease. When new neighbor Landon Troyer begins to court her, she tried to keep her impending blindness a secret rather than take a chance on losing his interest. Is marriage in Elsie's future, and will Landon be the man to overlook her disabilities and see her as a woman?This novel is my [...]


    15. A really nice journey! First of all let me tell you that this is the first book I have read in The Days of Redemption series. (Not because I didn't want to I just never got a chance to, anyway I digress) I love the title, the cover, and the poem that inspired the title. And that's just the beginning! Eventide is more than the back cover describes and led me to expect! Shelley entwines the emotions of a person with a disability that just wants to be treated like everyone else. She conveys the fru [...]


    16. Madi's Review: I really enjoyed this book! Eventide is the third book in "The Days Of Redemption" trilogy, and it made a wonderful conclusion. I read the second book in this series, but not the first (not because I didn't want to, but because I didn't have the opportunity). I'm really impressed with this author, and I hope to read more of her books in the future.Elsie Keim has been slowly going blind since she was twelve years old. Ever since her diagnosis her family has treated her like she was [...]


    17. This is an enjoyable story about Elsie Keim, a young Amish woman who is slowly going blind. She yearns for her family to see her for more than her disability, as the capable, strong woman she is. With her twin sister engaged and her brother newly married, she wonders if she will ever find a love of her own. When she meets their new neighbor, Landon, he seems to be interested and she wonders if this could be the man she's been waiting for, but worries what he'll think if he knows the extent of he [...]

    21. This was a wonderful conclusion to this series. I really loved this book and I was sorry to say goodbye to these characters.What I Liked: Elsie Keim is a very selfless young lady who is slowly going blind due to a disease she suffers from. I really liked her whole attitude with this. Would she like to see normally? Oh yes. But because she can't, does that mean she wallows in self-pity? Oh no. Elsie is determined to live a normal life in confidence in the skills God gave her. Elsie was definitely [...]

    24. “Eventide” by Shelley Shepard Gray is an Amish novel about a young woman who is losing her eyesight. Elsie has had problems with her eyes since birth and knew that some day she would become totally blind. Her family, parents and siblings, watch over her and try to make sure that she is safe.

    25. I really dislike this series to end. Have grown to love these characters, and I too, like the Author enjoy the Grandmother, Lovina. What a strong and loving person she is.This book wraps up several stories in one. Elsie is coming to terms with impending blindness, but is there an answer to help her? When a new neighbor begins to help her brother Roman, she likes what she finds in Landon Troyer. With her handicap can their ever be a relationship?Peter is finally embracing his problems, but when t [...]


    26. Eventide is an enjoyable story with a great faith lesson. It's a story of contrasts - an Amish family with more issues than a newspaper who find their way back to each other and to peace.Most of the story is anything but peaceful, however. With the full extended family trying to tell her what to do, Elsie has to figure out what she wants and how to get it - while dealing with her family at the same time. Throw in a new love interest - a first love interest - and Elsie's storyline alone will keep [...]


    27. What an awesome conclusion to the Days of Redemption Series by Shelley Shepherd Gray. It is best if you can read the whole series in order (Daybreak, Ray of Light, and Eventide). One of the things I loved about this series and also this book is that the family faces issues that every family faces. Secrets and feelings that must be dealt with. As the secrets are revealed the family must learn to deal with them and to seek the Lord for guidance. Even though this book is about an Amish family, the [...]


    28. Elsie Keim is going blind. She lives with her large, overprotective, Amish family. One thing she longs for is to find true love but with her coming blindness she knows no man would ever want her. However, handsome neighbor, Landon, starts showing an interest in her and she decides to keep her failing eyesight a secret. Elsie's brother, Roman, takes it upon himself to inform Landon of her condition, his heart is broken. With such a demanding job he would be away from home a lot and he wouldn't be [...]


    29. Eventide is very different from your run of the mill Amish Romance. It's not so much about the Church and myriad of rules and regulations that the Amish have to live with. It's not about making the huge decision to join the church or the risk of being shunned because you make a mistake. It's about emotion, making big decisions about the future and feeling left out and treated differently because Elsie has a disability. I really liked this book. It's a quick book to read (I read it in just a few [...]
