The Revelation. The last book in the Abram's Daughters series. Finally.

I feel such lovely closure from the tumultuous and mostly unbelievable tale in closing the cover of this novel. Leah gets married to her long-time love. Sadie finds happiness at last. Family feuds fired by misunderstanding and stubbornness are resolved. Incredible familial connections are realized. And many many Amish babies are born. ;)

The Revelation wont be my favorite of the Abram's Daughters series. Like the previous installment, that I reviewed here, I felt this was a bit contrived - especially with all the lose ends tying up in the nice little knot at the end - and drawn out. But, all in all, I wasn't reading this series for some grand literary adventure...just a bit of light reading on a fascinating lifestyle.

Goodbye, Abram, Leah, Jonas, Sadie, Mary Ruth, Hannah and Lydiann! I've had a sweet few months getting to know you...

Leah is finally going to marry her long lost beau Jonas and Sadie, a widow, is going to be wed as well. Abram has married his wife's sister and Mary Ruth is living her dream as a school teacher with her husband Robert. It is truly inspiring and it helps you to understand that even though you walk your path of life without knowing what the next day will bring God always does and everything happens for a reason. There are no mistakes. Beverly Lewis is a great author and she did a wonderful job with this series. It's rare that a book keeps my attention… (more)

A satisfying end to the series. Well worth the wait.

This fifth book wraps up the series rather nicely. The rest of the secrets are revealed, at least to select characters. Couples, for the most part, get their HEA, but maybe not in the expected way. There are deaths and births, which makes the book more realistic. There is a reconciliation between members of the community, and some leave the strict order while others adhere to it. Beverly Lewis tells an interesting story, and does well with character development. However, the contrived nature of at least three of the families in the series left me wondering what a family tree would look like. As a character in Tamar Myers’ novels said once, “There is so much intermarrying, I am my own first cousin.” This novel wasn’t quite that bad, but it came close. Still, it’s definitely an engrossing series, one that you will want to see through to the very last epilogue.… (more)

The final book of the Abrahm's Daughters series finds Leah reunited with Jonah, but will he survive the harsh Proving to be reinstated as a member of the church and be able to finally marry Leah? Sadie has found peace through her faith, but will she ever find love and the family she longs for? Dr. Schwartz continues to struggle with his long buried secret that will effect the entire Ebersol family if revealed. Lydiann continues to struggle with her feelings for Jake, but knows they cannot ever marry. Hannah and Mary Ruth are reunited and allowed to visit freely with one another, but will it be enough to life Hannah out of her troubled state?

A satisfying end to a great series! I don't know why it took me so long to read it!
