ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Booksellers across the country, and around the world, have spread the word of Beverly's tender tales of Plain country life. A clerk in a Virginia bookstore wrote, "Beverly's books have a compelling freshness and spark. You just don't run across writing like that every day. I hope she'll keep writing stories about the Plain people for a long, long time."
A member of the National League of American Pen Women, as well as a Distinguished Alumnus of Evangel University, Lewis has written over 80 books for children, youth, and adults, many of them award-winning. She and her husband, David, make their home in Colorado, where they enjoy hiking, biking, and spending time with their family. They are also avid musicians and fiction "book worms."
ABOUT THE BOOK
Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and thoroughly modern man?

This book has the intertwining stories of two Amish sisters, Hen and Rose, and the decisions they must face in life and love. Hen feels like she has to choose between her Amish way of life and her "English" husband. Rose has to decide whether to hold on to her feelings for her old love, Nick, or to let them go and move on to a life without him. Both of these characters touched me but I have to admit that overall Rose was my favorite. I loved how strong, steady, and dedicated to her family she is no matter what she is faced with.
This book is great and it proved once again that Beverly Lewis is by far one of the leading ladies when it comes to Amish fiction. If you like Amish fiction, or if you haven't tried it and would like to, this is a book I would highly recommend!
