With The Telling, Christy Award-winning author Beverly Lewis delivers the stirring conclusion to her New York Times bestselling Seasons of Grace trilogy.


As an Amish young lady leaves Bird-in-Hand in a fancy car to search for her mother in Ohio, she wonders if her mom really wants to be found. She also hopes her Englisher friend—determined to forgo traditional medicine—can find the healing she seeks. But she has no idea her mother is following clues of her own.

    " easy read...good series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 2/9/2014

    " This is a follow-up to "The MissingIt is equallt as good IF you like Amish books and I do. Although it seems as if their lives are so simple ... the have problems just like every else. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Beth | 1/29/2014

    " I found this book to be a little predictable and slower moving than book two. That being said I really enjoy reading about the simple and profound life of the Amish and Beverly Lewis does it very well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen B | 1/28/2014

    " Satisfying (albeit expected) ending to a enjoyable trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Nielsen | 1/23/2014

    " This book made me think a lot about repenting and forgiving. The forgiving part seemed to come so easily to these Amish characters. It made me want to work more on forgiving others so readily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 1/23/2014

    " I figured out where the plot was going in book 2 of this trilogy and since then had been wanting to read book 3. This is because I enjoy the journey sometimes as much as the destination. I also had a major concern about one of the characters. Would we get a happy or sad ending? I'm not going to tell you what happened, don't worry. What I will say is that I could not put this book down because I didn't just want to find out, I NEEDED to find out. Thank you, Beverly Lewis, for another wonderful trilogy with a satisfying conclusion. "

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

    " Not my fav Lewis series. But still a decent time-passer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/15/2014

    " I thought it was the best book out of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby Morris | 12/27/2013

    " Was sad for the series to end! Great books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 12/15/2013

    " Oh boy. I really hated the way this book ended. Disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 11/10/2013

    " The conclusion of this trilogy was great. I figured out how it would end and it didn't disappoint. I love Beverly Lewis. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beckie Wendorf | 10/15/2013

    " My hunches on how the series would end were right, but it was still very worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 10/13/2013

    " I loved this series. That is all I have to say cause that really sums it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine C | 9/19/2013

    " The final book to her Seasons of Grace series. A bit drawn out, but I enjoy reading her books as they put me in a relaxed, life-slowed-down, mood. Her books are quick reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 9/18/2013

    " I had already guessed the ending, but the "getting there" kept me turning the pages to see how it all worked out. Loose ends were wrapped up, but not so tightly that another book or series couldn't be started from a few of the looser ends. Hint, hint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 4/28/2013

    " This book was a little too drawn out for me. She could have shortened up what happened in this book and put it at the end of the second book, The Missing. Then everything that was of any interest was rushed at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 12/22/2012

    " I read this in 3 sittings! I can not wait to read the next one!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 10/24/2012

    " This book and the two before it, speak of a simpler time, when doing everything to praise God was the primary goal. It reminded me of the '50's, when I was a child. This is an excellent book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 5/25/2012

    " Yeah...so I enjoy semi-cliche Amish books. ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne Stehr | 5/18/2012

    " Not my favorite series as a whole. I understand theya re all fiction, but this one seemed beyond fiction! Way too predictable although I am happy with the ending (that you could see coming) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 2/13/2012

    " This was a wonderful conclusion to the Seasons of Grace trilogy. Beverly Lewis writes very inspiring Christian ficiton and this book was no exception. Well done! "

    " Liked the book, but very predictable. Held my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenna | 10/31/2011

    " A satisfying, if admittedly obvious and totally conventional and expected conclusion to this trilogy. (But that should not deter those who like this series; the conclusion was rather obvious from book 1). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 9/10/2011

    " I have waited for this last "chapter" in the Grace series since I knew it was coming out. Reading Beverly Lewis' books is like revisiting friends. Thank you so for this series of three. I would recommend them to anyone. My heart rejoiced! "
