    " Really liked this one, but I figured out the adopted daughter thing a book ago. No real mystery there, but still really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 2/6/2014

    " Great book! I love reading about the Amish, I learn so much. I have to admit though i would not like to live like they do, I like my electricity too much! "

    " I never get tired of Beverly Lewis and this one was even better than the last one I read. And I quickly put her next one on hold at the library. She really makes you feel like you are a part of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Hanes | 1/21/2014

    " I felt the pain of Grace's mother as I read Beverly's words and I also felt the anguish of Grace for her mother's departure. I did figure out who Heather really is though, but mostly because I couldn't stand not knowing and the clues were becoming clearer and clearer as the story went on. I am still anxiously awaiting the next novel in the series though, because I can't wait to see how Beverly brings everything to a close. "
