One of the most successful novel series written by author Linda Byler is titled as the ‘Lizzie Searches for Love’ series. This series consists of a total of 3 novels published between the years 2010 and 2011. The first novel of this novel was released under the title ‘Running Around (And Such)’. It was published by the Good Books publishing house in the year 2010. The plot of this novel is set in the world of the Amish community and revolves around the main characters named Lizzie, Emma, and Mandy, all of whom are depicted as sisters. Author Linda has written this romance novel based her true experiences. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, it is shown that there is so much happening in the life of Lizzie that she needs to figure out. Due to this, she seems hesitant towards continuing with her Amish way of life, even though she wants to continue with it. Lizzie typically appears wondering about why she is not allowed to keep her hair loose and wear high heel shoes.

The most important thing that Lizzie worries about is that whether she will be able to know who is she going to get married to, like her sister Emma. She even seems disturbed after learning that her younger sister named Mandy has a date before she has one. A man named Amos likes her very much whenever he sees her playing the Ping Pong games. He wishes to take her to his home, but fears to ask her out because of Ruthie. The whole life of Lizzie has been pretty much disturbed. She does not like babies and hates doing household chores. The one thing that she likes the most is riding horses at a racing speed. When Lizzie is made to go away from her home for one week in order to work as a maid, she seems determined to scare the Amish boys there. One of the egg-truck drivers seems to have fallen for her. Whenever this man comes to pick up his order, he fills Lizzie with a scary thrill, due to which, he is forced to stay for a little more time around her. Now, Lizzie wonders how will she be able to hide the secret of her relationship with the truck driver from her parents and sisters? In the end, it appears that Lizzie is too innocent, spirited, and uninhibited to live her life as a young woman in the Amish community.

The second novel of the Lizzie Searches for Love series written by author Linda Byler was published under the title ‘When Strawberries Bloom’. It was released by the Good Books publishing house in the year 2010. The plot of this novel continues to depict the happenings in the lives of the three sisters named Lizzie, Mandy, and Emma. In the opening sequence of the plot of this novel, it is shown that Lizzie Glick gets a new love in her life and searches for the answers of some more questions about her life. She becomes successful in fulfilling her dream of becoming a school teacher. Lizzie seems to like the building her new teaching school very much as well as the singing sound of the children. She appears to be totally independent in her classroom.

Each morning at the start of her day, Lizzie feels a new excitement in her life which does not appear to be ruined by the unruly boys. However, the things at her home continue to be in a turmoil. She begins to wonder what will happen to her family farm as well as her future after learning that Dat’s health is deteriorating day by day. After seeing that her sisters are committed to their partners, she begins to think how to deal with Stephen and adjust her life according to his. Lizzie even seems to be in a dilemma in continuing with her dream job or quit it for getting married and starting her own family. Also, she does completely believe that Stephen loves her, even if he says so. Therefore, she hopes to find a better man from the Amish community, who would love her soulfully, appreciate her imaginations and ideas, her stormy humor and her competitive spirit.
