Abram Ebersol and wife, Ida, are raising their four daughters on a firm foundation of Plain traditions, and he expects the girls to carry on that heritage into the future, safe and secure in their cloistered Lancaster County community. But Sadie, the oldest daughter, has found little appeal in her Amish life compared to the lure of the English world surrounding them.

When Sadie's traditional rumschpringe before embracing baptismal vows goes terribly awry, sister Leah's life also may be forever altered by their secret pact. The twins, Hannah and Mary Ruth, have their own distinct and hidden yearnings, and fear clutches at each heart as the two begin to realize where those yearnings might lead. Is the Ebersol family tapestry unraveling too quickly, too permanently, to be repaired?

Listener Opinions

    " I loved the first book in this series. It was relaxing (easy to read), informative, and entertaining. It made me want to be Amish. I was excited to finally start the second book. This book was frustrating because the characters kept dwelling on the same issues without ever getting to the point! I am now definitley glad that I am not Amish! I hope there is some kind of resolve in the third book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hailey | 2/11/2014

    " These books keep me wanting to read more even though they are predictable. This one made me so mad, although I guessed what was going to happen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jmccarthy0704 | 2/3/2014

    " I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I love learning about other cultures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 1/28/2014

    " I'm hooked on this series. Wow! I'm so frustrated for Leah in this book. Glad some loose ends are solved....but so many more to go! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 12/29/2013

    " Great book! Surely I felt this way the first time I read it through, wanting to strangle some people in this book because I was so frustrated with them. This book leads you to the third much more than the first book made you want to read the second. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 12/29/2013

    " I loved this book so much, but was so frustrated with it. I got so involved that I just wanted to yell at the characters and tell them what the other was thinking and doing to make everything better. Great book in a great series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 12/21/2013

    " I found this book a nice continuation of the first book; however, I was a little disappointed in Leah's father. I thought he was too meddlesome and, in doing so, created sadness and disappointment for one of his daughters. Interesting twists though! I'm on to the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 12/10/2013

    " Really good book! I can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 12/10/2013

    " Suspenseful throughout. Well written, lots of drama and detail for a series which I appreciate. Better than book 1 but you need to start at beginning. Definitely left me having no choice but to start book 3 immediately. Caution: Amish community drama can be highly addictive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 12/8/2013

    " I liked this one even more than the first of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Poling | 11/25/2013

    " The second in a series of five. As with the first I really liked it. However, I can't find the other three. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Bennett | 11/16/2013

    " It was an okay book. I should have read the first book in the series to help get some of the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 10/30/2013

    " I really enjoy books about the Amish life. Beverly Lewis did it again by creating this story that pulls you deeper and deeper into the Amish life. Leah in this book is my favorite character of this story because you really see her heartbreak and feel how sad she really is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 10/28/2013

    " Another good one, with an even worse ending. Why can't people communicate?? This one, again, has a frustrating ending. I'm off to read the next one . . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryll | 9/23/2013

    " Abram's daughter's series is the best. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Megan M. | 4/29/2013

    " Okay, so it's kind of crazy but after reading these books I really wanted to see the Amish. So my family took a vacation to Indiana where there is an Amish community and we visited this place that describes the Amish life. I liked it very much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 4/11/2013

    " Book 2 of Abrams Daughters Saga "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodie | 1/5/2013

    " A great continuation to an awesome series....can't wait for book 3. I still maintain that this series should be made into a tv mini series. It is so well written. The characters are addictive and let's face it, the amish are fascinating! This is just a great series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Savannah | 12/7/2012

    " it is an inticipating book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca | 10/30/2012

    " Beverly Lewis does an amazing job of placing the reader in the middle of the Amish culture ... such a great book series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/3/2012

    " A good continuation of the series. It's sad what can happen when people don't communicate. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 8/18/2012

    " The writing style was noticeably different from the first book. I wasn't such a fan of the change. I found the plot pretty predictable and, at times, frustrating. I don't know if I'll be finishing the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thea | 6/22/2012

    " The ending made me very angry! I guess I will have to read the third book to find out what happens! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/26/2012

    " One of five books in a series regarding the Amish community, faith in God and loyalty to family. I learned much about the insular nature of the Amish way of life. Charming and naive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cris Byrd | 12/20/2011

    " THIS SERIES Was good but didnt keep my interest "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adenike Adebiyi | 6/18/2011

    " Jah, it was a gud book. Now, I must read Book Three, The Sacrifice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 5/28/2011

    " Oh my gosh! I'm in LOVE with these books!!! I'm reading the third right now and I'm beyond mad with how it's going. As for the second book, really good and then really sad at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 3/14/2011

    " I'm enjoying this series. I've listened to these on CD. I end up catching myself starting to use some of the phrasing from the book - "ain't so". Interesting insights into Amish life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JaNae | 1/27/2011

    " I was not impressed. The character portrayal was weak, the story line was not developed, but I did like learning a little about Amish life (if it was accurate). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vikki | 4/30/2010

    " This is the second book in the Abrams Daughters series. It was very good. Leah was to marry but there was a mixup in the romance. I look forward to the next book in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 3/16/2010

    " I like and have read almost all of Beverly Lewis' Amish books. The Amish people fasinate me with their simple life and love and loyality to their faith. Have been reading her books for many years! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/2/2010

    " One of five books in a series regarding the Amish community, faith in God and loyalty to family. I learned much about the insular nature of the Amish way of life. Charming and naive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 6/5/2009

    " This series is not particularly well-written, but passable, and interesting. I like learning about cultures different from mine, and especially seeing how they are similar to mine. "
