The Preacher's Daughter is the first in a captivating new series, Annie's People, and introduces an Amish community in Paradise, Pennsylvania - a heavenly sounding place, but one that has seen its share of heartache and mystery. A moving story of friendship, secrets, and love.

Annie Zook, the only daughter of an Old Order Amish preacher, wants to please her parents and her Plain community, but a hidden passion stands in the way. Creating art is strictly forbidden by Annie's church district. Her secret has already cost her the affection of handsome Rudy Esh. She must choose between her art and the People - the only life she knows. Louisa Stratford, Annie's longtime pen pal, is a modern Denverite who shares Annie's love of art. When Louisa escapes her own problems to go to Paradise for a taste of the simple life, will she nudge Annie closer to all she has known and loved....or tempt Annie to pursue her own dreams?

    " This book was definitely good reading but not overly exciting. The story line was good and kept me interested though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/5/2014

    " AAhhh, what a relaxing book. Beverly Lewis takes the reader to the land of the Omish - in this particular series, a town called Paradise. I really enjoyed reading about the culture, the author being a Mennanite growing up. The characters were well written. The plot was simple, yet kept my interest. It makes me wonder if we are the ones who have life wrong - just trying to make it by day by day with crammed schedules and more technology than we know what to do with. It was a refreshing read with an uplifting message. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina Zimdars | 2/1/2014

    " This series from Beverly Lewis is Amish Lifestyle. It reminds you how even thought life can be lead in the simplest of ways there is also heartache and secrets that make it just as difficult or more difficult as the world we live in. I couldn't put this series down. As soon as I finished The Preachers Daughter I had to go out and buy The Englisher. When the third book came out in late 2007 I even took the time to reread the first two before reading the last one. It was nice to find some books worth reading more than once. "

    " I really enjoyed this series about Amish life. This is the first book in the series. "

    " I enjoy Beverly Lewis' books. I'm intrigued by the Amish and Lewis' portrayals are realistic and inviting. Hers are gentle books, refreshing and nice to read. Or to listen to on tape. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 1/10/2014

    " Tedious. Story ended with no resolution and not enough "oomph" to make me want to read the next book. Some interesting insight into the Amish, however, which gave me enough momentum to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 1/2/2014

    " Fun, easy read about the Amish. I enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haley | 12/30/2013

    " listened to the audio book. a sweet, entertainment while sick in bed. curious what happens after the cliffhanger ending. may have to track down the second in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/30/2013

    " This is the first book in a 3 part series. It was a litle slow but kept me interested. Not sure the next 2 will do the same, but I want to know how the story ends, and the author wrapped in enough plot lines to keep me intrigued for now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 12/17/2013

    " It was a nice safe story. I have already started The Englisher and will enjoy following the characters struggle for what they want out of life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 12/6/2013

    " good book, new series about amish, about a preachers daughter who has a passion for drawing/painting which is a big nono in this particular amish order. towards the end i think it starts getting predictable, i have a feeling on how the ending will happen, even though two more books are in the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine Leahy | 11/26/2013

    " This was my first Beverly Lewis book and I enjoyed it. At first I thought it was a little light but then things happened that I wanted to know the outcome. Interesting to read about the life of the Amish. I will try another one of her books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 7/27/2013

    " I enjoyed this one but yet in the middle i found it really hard keep up, im not even sure if I read it all actually. I can't remember me doing so. Although it was great to see two friends be close and be from two different worlds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saadia | 6/16/2012

    " Listening on CD. The story is a bit difficult to follow because there are so many side stories that seem to break in at unexpected moments. "

    " Good book although a bit slow for me - but defenitely sweeps you into the amish life. I felt almost stressed or apprehensive reading it for this poor woman and living with her mother. I just wanted her to find happiness! "

    " I really enjoy Beverly Lewis books. They are similar and tend to blend together, but are a fun and easy read. Perfect for summer. The Amish are a very interesting culture and I enjoy reading about their lifestyles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 11/5/2010

    " I liked the story. It is interesting learning about the Amish people, but it is a little to slow- nothing really exciting happens. I just don't know if I want to read the next one for that reason. "

    " It was nice to read this nice book along with Hunger Gamers, needed something to balance that out, but I wasn't happy with how the series ended. I did like learning more about Amish and it made me reflect more on my beliefs. Sometimes information was repeated way too much. "
