Quotes

  • “The Reckoning not only brought this series to an end, it proved a stern point: Amish fiction is far from boring and Beverly Lewis depicted a wonderful story…The narrator of this audiobook series, Marguerite Gavin, is wonderful. Gavin uses a very believable Amish dialect when she speaks the phrases of the characters and also has a very captivating voice. I’m thankful that Blackstone Audio used the same narrator throughout the series, it makes the story flow better from book to book…Overall, the Heritage of Lancaster County series is wonderful and captivating. I truly enjoyed all three books, especially The Reckoning because it tied together every loose end.”

    " As with the rest of the books of this series...I learned a lot about the culture of the Amish which was great! But after all the time commited to reading these books and all the build up...I felt like the end just totally fizzled. Good grief! "

    " Yes, I read the newer cover for this too. I liked the ending enough not to be sad when the characters had to go. "

    " This ended better than I thought it might, but only after some eye-rolling on my part. I really enjoyed the other Lewis trilogy I read so maybe she got better with some experience. I thought It could have been a great novel but was a really drawn-out trilogy with a lot of superfluous stuff. "

    " I really enjoyed this final book. It ended exactly like I wanted it too even thought it took awhile. There were quite a few slow parts, but it didn't really take away much from the story. I really loved reading the religious aspect of it. I love hearing of ones journey with christ even if it is fiction. :) "

    " This is book 3 of this series. I enjoyed the first one the best and this last one was good but it dragged on. I wish she had gotten to the ending faster and discussed that relationship that developed at the end longer instead of taking half of the book to get there. I don't know if that makes sense but if you read it you'll know what I mean. All in all it was a good series. I enjoyed learning more about the Amish lifestyle, even though it was fictional and I don't know how accurate it was. "

    " I never did become captivated by this trilogy. However I did enjoy seeing the characters grow & open up in the final book. I also enjoyed the details of the Amish community, that was very fascinating & probably what drove me to finish this slow paced series. "

    " This was my least favorite Amish series. Still not bad, but not the most gripping, if you can call them that. A bit too predictable; the author is not the most creative writer... Out of the 3 in the series, this one was my favorite, though. That happy ending stuff. "
