Beverly Lewis, the bestselling author of The Shunning, offers listeners a moving tale of love and spiritual awakening. In The Redemption of Sarah Cain, she examines the conflict between two very different cultures. Sarah Cain is a strictly modern woman living in Oregon and developing a burgeoning career in real estate. Her sister Ivy left to pursue a plain life in Amish country twelve years ago. But when Ivy dies, Sarah is shocked to learn that she has been appointed guardian of her sister’s five children. Lydia, the eldest, senses major difficulties for the new family. Neither she nor Sarah are truly prepared for the drastic changes they will have to make in order to honor Ivy’s last wish. With hope and tenderness, Lewis guides Sarah and the children on their journey of religious fulfillment. Barbara Caruso’s tender narration lends a sensitive charm to each of the characters.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel N | 2/15/2014

    " Although an interesting peek at the Amish community, the story was slow moving... even boring... I kept waiting for the climax. Fox Faith is making a movie out of this book and, according to previews, have changed the story quite a bit - a film that may challenge my adamant declarations that "the book is always better than the movie." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/4/2014

    " this book was okay, it was a happy feel good story. It was predictable but a solid story. It is not a book you have to think much about. "

    " Sarah's Amish sister, Ivy, gives gaurdianship of her 5 children to Sarah at her death. Sarah is not Amish and they've never been close as sisters....what was Ivy thinking? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/17/2014

    " This is actually my least favorite book of Beverly Lewis, but I do like it. The story didn't grip me as much as her other books, which I don't know why. Maybe it's because I watched the movie before reading the book. :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vikki | 1/13/2014

    " A good, little story. A non Amish woman comes to take care of her dead sister's children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/8/2014

    " I did not become very attached to the characters in this novel, but it offers an interesting glimpse into modern day Amish life and offers both Amish and Englisher views. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 12/16/2013

    " I read this years ago. It's about a woman who's sister and brother-in-law die, leaving her custody of their 5 children. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diamond Jones | 11/30/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. Even though I already knew what was going to happen since I watched the movie first. The book still was great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 11/29/2013

    " My husband picked this up at CBA. I had read The Shunning and liked it. This was a little too predictable but an o.k. beach read. They are making a movie out of it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 11/27/2013

    " Sarah Cain is a great character. This book felt like a summary of a series. In other words, it went way too quickly without any depth. I didn't like it for that reason. The plot seemed rushed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Devine | 10/30/2013

    " I thought this was a great book but ended much too early. I wonder if Beverly Lewis will ever write a second book for this story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 2/11/2013

    " Not as good as Abram's Daughters. I thought the events of the story would be unlikely if it were a real situation. It seemed to end abruptly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 4/9/2012

    " This is a well written book about the Amish. This series follows a romance and the problems of families as they try to walk in their believes "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/12/2012

    " they are all similar, but I like them now and then to remind myself about the beauty of living simply and that strife and temptation are just a part of human nature! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 5/21/2011

    " I am always intrigued by the Amish life - how they live and why they choose to live as they do. Why the next generation stays and continues on. This book was good--predictable and rushed at the end--but a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 5/19/2011

    " Finished reading 2 days ago, yet reading it again. I enjoyed this book very much, but I also reread many books back to back because I read so fast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 3/16/2009

    " I really like Beverly Lewis' books. Even though the writing isn't spectacular, the plots are heartwarming and the characters are believable. Reading about those with simple faith who pray is comforting even though I disagree with their theology. "

    " I really liked this book. The Amish interest me. Also, I liked the path the characters take to resolve issues. It's a quick, thought provoking read. "
