The Friessens, stars of the bestselling series, are back with THE DECISION, another heartwarming fan favorite romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart.

Emily Friessen has everything a woman could want: a husband who’s the love of her life, a family that stands together, and children she wouldn’t trade for anything. To everyone around her, she’s confident and strong—but then, she has to be with a man like Brad, who is all about family and too handsome for his own good.

Emily isn’t as together as she appears, though, and when life throws her and Brad a curveball, it tests their relationship, leaving Emily scrambling and feeling very much alone as both are faced with a decision no parent should have to make.

What happens when you meet a man you can’t take home to meet your parents?

— “Eckhart has done it again-she is a masterful author that leaves you begging for more!” Katie Orost

Author Lorhainne Eckhart returns with a brand-new generation of Friessens in an engrossing romance series about family, commitment, hope, and making relationships work. In this Friessen Family novel, an unexpected proposition leaves a young woman tempting fate, pursuing a love that will inevitably end in heartbreak.

She looked him straight in the eyes, those blue eyes that were so intense. She wondered what they’d be able to get her to do. She was smart, level headed, and not lacking in self-confidence. She loved who she was, she had a family who loved her, and yet here she was, sitting here, discussing giving something to a man she would never have considered giving to anyone.

Living on her parents’ ranch in the middle of nowhere, Becky Friessen realizes most people would give anything to be part of her family and have the kind of love her parents have, but she needs more than quiet and stability. She craves excitement, action, a spark of adventure—and she won’t let anyone steer her into something she doesn’t want to do, living in a quiet piece of the world where nothing ever happens.

That is until she meets a man who shocks her with an indecent proposal that she finds herself actually considering. He’s a man she could never tell her parents about, a man she could never take home to meet the family. However, fighting this insane attraction between them could drive her down a one-way road to heartbreak.

— “The Friessens are Back! Well written and powerful, the characters are unforgettable and you won't be able to put the books down” – Patti. B

— “This book is one of the most emotionally provoking books I have read in a long time. Typical of Eckhart's writing, the characters are realistically genuine and heartfelt and the story is non-traditional enough to cause angst for the beloved Friessen family.” aherman
