Good book, but I didn't like the cliffhanger

I love Beverly Lewis books...haven't read one I didn't like. HOWEVER, I can normally read one in one of her series and when I've finished the book, felt like it was the end of the book....I was still anxious to read the next in the series, but I felt satisfied.

With The Secret (and also with "The Missing") it seemed to me that the book came to an abrupt end without any closure---as if someone stole the last couple chapters or something. And after having read The Secret and The Missing, I now have to wait several months for the next book in the series to come out....I just felt the book was left unfinished.

Blah, Depressing, and Boring

I am taking out the book mark at page 265. I just cannot continue. Nothing pleasant has happened so far in the entire more than two hundred and fifty pages minus one paragraph. Many things are going on, yet every single one is depressing with no reprieve. I have read a handful of reviews so far that love the story and the presentation of the Amish lives through the novel. This book for me just is not happening.



In the past, I have read several titles by Beverly Lewis and loved them. This one is just dull and bland and I cannot continue it. There are too many dozens of books to be read. I spent three days and more pages and effort than I should have. Some already have, and some will love this book, but I do not and I do not recommend it. It could turn around, but you need some relief in the hours of depression and pain and this so far has not had it.
