This book was an utter let down. Beverly Lewis is by far one of my very favorite authors, but this novel was a sensational flop for me! I was stunned and even angered by the fact that it just didn't live up to her exceptional quality. I will continue reading her novels, but I may think twice before

This third book in the Crossroads series is so vastly different from the first two it is hard to believe it’s part of the series. Very little of it takes place in Amish country. It centers around a young non-Amish woman, her father, and her husband. The authors try to build suspense by waiting

through most of the tale before divulging the secret connections, but by then, the impetus is lost. The conclusion is quickly wrapped up and falls flat. A disappointing end to a likewise series.

Of all the Beverly Lewis books that I've read, I think this one was my least favorite. The story, as a whole, was good but I didn't like the way it was written. The thing that bugged me the most was that an explanation for Melissa's being on the run was not given until almost 200(!!) pages into the

book. I could see 30 or 40 pages---especially since the mystery started with the very first page---but 200??? It made for a "too quick" conclusion. If an explanation would have been given earlier on then the action would have been more intense throughout since the reader would have some understanding of what from and why Melissa was running.

Still, I did choke back tears at the end and am overall glad that I read it.
