The Abram's Daughters saga encompasses the lives of three generations of Ebersols, an Amish family of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Opening with The Covenant at the end of World War II and continuing into the '50s with The Betrayal, Leah and Sadie Ebersol have made very different choices with consequences that have left them many miles apart, both physically and emotionally. Having already suffered unthinkable betrayals, Leah has accepted her life as Abram's daughter, fitting willingly and comfortably into the family and work, whether she is needed out in the barn or helping her mother, Ida, with housework and baby sister Lydiann. But an unexpected family announcement brings unimaginable joy - as well as incredible sorrow.

Leah is once again caught between the yearnings of her heart and responsibility for her family. Her younger sisters, twins Hannah and Mary Ruth, face their own difficult choices. Their paths also seem to be diverging, pushing the Ebersol family into further turmoil. Will they ever find true peace - within and without?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lena | 2/17/2014

    " This is a cheesy series that takes place in Amish country, but I love it. This book was a little slower than the first 2 in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snezhana | 2/17/2014

    " Book 3 in the series of 'Abram's Daughters' and the title says it well. There is so much sacrifice being made in this book out of love and out of faith that God will turn the pain into beauty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kikki | 2/6/2014

    " Damn book made me cry 3 times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/2/2014

    " Mixed feelings on this one. I picked this book up knowing that it was published by Bethany House and that it would be about the Amish. I didn't like the back handed way the author handled the Amish religious beliefs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 1/27/2014

    " Same review as the covenant and the betrayal. Was not as emotion evoking as The Betrayal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wanda Ballou | 1/24/2014

    " The last of this trilogy. While reading I feel like I'm right there. The scenery, the people involved all make the story real. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Odetta | 1/23/2014

    " I was glad to get finished with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/19/2014

    " These books are very simple, a little too simple for my liking. The story has the potential to be so good...dead babies, stolen loves, sisterly squabbles...but Beverly Lewis does not go deep enough for my liking. That said, I do enjoy reading about the Amish culture and find the characters likeable. I plan to continue the series so I must be interested! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly Troup | 1/18/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Lower | 12/16/2013

    " This book is just as good as the rest in the series. It's a nice light read, something to escape from the day. Puts things in perspective about how we lead our lives! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 11/16/2013

    " Escape from reality book. Quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Hunt | 11/4/2013

    " Such sad losses are experienced in this third installment of the daughters of Abram. But God's grace and love reach even the harder hearts of the family and blessings are found in abundance thru trial and growth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 9/19/2013

    " I am finding this book series to be entertaining enough to finish. The book is about the Amish culture which I know little about so aspects of it are fascinating. It is a very easy and quick read with good character and plot development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 9/11/2013

    " I'm so hooked on this series. My favorite quote from this book is "Some might say I have every right to carry a grudge, but an unforgiving spirit eventually destroys the soul, and I have better things to do." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Williams | 6/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy McClanahan | 5/13/2013

    " I have come to really love this fictional Amish family. In spite of the many books I have waiting for me to read them, I look forward to reading the 4th book in this series. "

    " This series of books are about the life of the Amish. I have found it very interesting. I really like the story line and really like learning about the life of an Amish family. I would recomend this series of books to anyone. Very well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adenike Adebiyi | 1/1/2012

    " I skipped too many pages of this book. Still, I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, i.e., The Prodigal. I have to know how the story ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christal | 10/19/2011

    " I thought this was probably the a little to slow, but it still had important thing you needed to about the Abram's daughters series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seneca Massie | 9/10/2011

    " My heart breaks all over again for Leah. She deserves so much more than what shes be given in life. Hopefully as the series continues, life will grant her some blessings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arianne Wright | 8/22/2011

    " I liked this series because it dealt with a taboo topic: children born out of wedlock in a strict Christian community. The story is mostly believable, and has unpredictable plot twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cris Byrd | 5/4/2011

    " IT DIDNT KEEP MY INTEREST THTA MUCH "

  • 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. "
