Enjoyable continuing story -- The Gift
The story picks up from the first book, with several characters returning in continuing relationships. The story has an engaging mix of hope, joy, promise and hurt, despair, and struggle. There are twists and turns that kept me well involved in the flow of the story. I also learned some interesting things about widely varying topics like reflexology and hummingbirds.
Fans of good Amish fiction should enjoy this read by one of the premier authors in the genre. There are enough loose ends left in the story to make me anxious to see how they work out in the final installment of the trilogy -- The Revelation, scheduled for release next February.
Thanks to Wanda and her publisher for providing a copy of The Gift in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family—and away from the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife. Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?
About the Author:
