Blatantly preachy and somewhat judgmental of the English world and values. Not one of my fave Lewis books.

A great story-one that kept you going until the end of it. Seeing the different cultures intermingle and the tenderness that it was done is truly a testament to Beverly Lewis. Truly an amazing author!!

Excellent. Mrs. Lewis does relationships very well!

A woman who never understood her sisters decision to leave the modern world and join the Amish order is forced to confront her own ideals when her sister dies and she is forced to look after her sisters five children. Interesting study of how she comes to terms with all she has held dear in the
Show Moremodern world of things and what she ultimately chooses for herself.
