Becky Meets Her Match
Becky Esh has lots of spunk. Never mind that she's Amish, she regularly confronts authority figures. Her beautiful singing touches those who hear her so deeply that even men cry. In Becky Meets Her Match, Linda Byler crafts an unforgettable character who is quick-witted, good-humored, and thrives on independence-but inwardly struggles with her own self-consciousness. Overweight at sixteen, Becky is frustrated by her inability to lose weight and anxious about finding love.An opportunity arrives to leave her Wisconsin home and care for her ailing grandparents in Pennsylvania. Becky is happy for a change of pace and to avoid the drama that is sure to unfold as her slender, good-looking friends begin courting boys. Maybe her new responsibility will help distract her from her size and her own yearning for a date. But at the Christmas Eve party for the Amish young people, Becky unexpectedly gets the perfect Christmas gift. Shocked, she loses her confidence and leaves the party on foot, terrifying everyone when they realize she's missing.Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction-novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.
