    " Such a fantastic book. I'm so caught up in the story now to where I'm just flying through this series. So wonderful. I love how she portrays these culture differences in such a positve light. She's not passing judgement on either of them, you just get to observe the ups and downs of both sides of the fence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 1/31/2014

    " Like the title, The theme of Sacrifice is woven throughout the novel. Giving light and hope to Leah Ebersol. The writing style seems different from the first in the series, but I've still enjoyed reading about the Amish way of life and I am hooked to find out what happens next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/28/2014

    " 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 Tanya Gulino | 1/18/2014

    " Same as every book in the series, lots of unanswered questions. So you better be ready to read the whole series or else you'll be frustrated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Raina | 1/17/2014

    " Loved it!! Very interesting look into a closed off world and society. I learned a lot! Great series!! "

    " Damn book made me cry 3 times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maren | 1/5/2014

    " This one was so much better than number two. Even though there are still loose ends (and I'm definitly going to read book 4 and 5,) there was enough closure for the time being. I didn't feel gypped at the end like I did with book two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 12/29/2013

    " These books are really growing on me. "

    " This was good, though I'm having to be patient with this series...has a lot of suspense and every novel seems to end leaving you hanging:) But it's still good, and I can't wait for the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seneca Massie | 11/4/2013

    " 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 Catherine | 7/6/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Archibald | 4/18/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirlyn | 12/13/2012

    " I totally agree with the review I saw that this is like an Amish Soap Opera, but I can't get away from it. This is the 3rd in the series and still like them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Williams | 11/5/2012

    " Very good!!! Anxious to get to the next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Analisa | 10/11/2012

    " I liked this series, but it got a little too soap-opera-ish for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/4/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 9/22/2012

    " Not my favorite thus far of the series. It's a little too evangelical for my taste, however, I am happy to have kept up with the Sadie, Jonas, Leah saga! Looking forward to Book 4. (I kind of skimmed through the evangelical parts...) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marci | 5/12/2012

    " I skimmed the pages and was able to piece together what happened, as the series is somewhat predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Memomma13 | 1/12/2012

    " I cried so much I got a headache. Good read. Thorough invested in the characters at this point and can't stop. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 10/18/2011

    " I was a bit surprised by how things went in this book. I know the author is trying to show how strong the Leah character is but I felt let down by the change of events in her life. I wanted to see more of her struggle in overcoming her feelings for her sister; it fell a bit flat for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 8/7/2011

    " Book 3 of Abram's Daughters Saga "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie Dickey | 7/4/2011

    " Most of these books I bought on Amazon for a penny plus shipping. Teenagers would enjoy the stories. It makes me want to go to Lancaster County and see the fruits of their lives in person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 3/11/2011

    " This is the 3rd in the Abrams Daughters series. I love these books. Such trials this family goes through, and continues to go through. Do they grow spiritually??? I'm thinking they are growing spiritually in a different direction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 1/4/2011

    " Of all the books in the series, this was the most sad, I thought. But still a very heart-felt book. "

    " I love this series....If you have ever thought about reading a series about the amish, this is the one to read.
    You will not be disappointed. Everyone that I have recommended the series too has fallen in love with Abram's daughters as much as I have...just do it. "
