Book Description from Amazon.com:

“Sent from Michigan to Pennsylvania following the tragic death of her Amish parents, Lena Rose Schwartz grieves her loss and the separation from her nine siblings. Beside the fact that Lena has never been so far from home, she hasn’t met the family she will now be living with. But worse than that is having to live apart from her close-knit brothers and sisters. How will they manage without her to care for them–especially six-year-old Chris? And will her new beau, Hans Bontrager, continue to court her despite the many miles between them?

Yet even as Lena Rose holds on to hope for a reunion with those she loves most, she discovers that Lancaster holds charms of its own. Is she willing to open her heart to new possibilities?”

My Review:

Such a lovely, touching story by Beverly Lewis. The book begins with great sadness but ends with great hope. I loved all the characters, but especially the main character, Lena. Her love for and her desire to find a way to reunite with her orphaned brothers and sisters, even if it meant putting aside her all plans for her own life, was the main theme throughout the book. Beverly Lewis is a master storyteller. This story is filled with faith, hope, and love. I was cheering for Lena all throughout the story and loved the ending. I’ll be reading this book again. This is now one of my favorite Beverly Lewis stories.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not required to give a positive review. This is my honest opinion about this book.
