Review: The Guardian

Genre: FICT, Contemporary Fiction

Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania–the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis’s celebrated Amish novels began–with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.

When Jodi Winfield comes to Lancaster to house-sit, the last thing she expects to find is a disheveled little girl alone on the side of the road. The young teacher is mystified when she learns there have been no reports of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can’t speak English. It’s as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

Then Jodi turns her attention to Hickory Hollow–and the cloistered world of the Old Order Amish–in search of answers.

My Thoughts:

Although this book doesn’t mention any characters from the previous two books in the series, The Fiddler and The Bridesmaid, it was still a really good read. At first I thought it would be the end of the series, but there is another book coming out in September. I can’t wait.

This books main character is not from the Amish, but is instead of a woman, Jodi, who finds peace will visiting an Amish family.  Jodi has given up on God since the passing of her sister. She believes that a God of love would never take the one person that was everything to her, older sister, friend, confidant, and was always there for her. But when she finds a young girl beside the road on one of her morning runs, she discovers a family who slowly but surely convince her to turn back to God.

I enjoyed reading this book as much as the other two and can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Beverly Lewis’ books don’t just revolve around the characters; they always bring you back to the truth and to the Word of God. Her books are an inspiration to me and I love them and will always have room on my shelf for more of her books.
