Overview

From Bestselling Author Beverly Lewis

A Long-Lost Postcard First Brought Them Together. Will Their Differences Keep Them Apart?

After the dramatic conclusion to his discovery of a long-lost postcard, journalist Philip Bradley simply cannot forget the Amish people he met while on assignment in Pennsylvania--particularly Rachel Yoder and her young daughter, Annie. Rachel's cheerful outlook, in spite of her blindness, and her appealing, uncomplicated lifestyle beckon Philip amid the high-paced existence of his New York career.

Philip's newfound knowledge of the true reason for Rachel's loss of sight spurs him on to uncover what he can about the possibility for a cure. In Lancaster County, Rachel has her own ideas about the way her vision might be restored, and it doesn't include the local healer and his black box. Now, Rachel firmly believes the God she serves is the only One who can grant her sight, but as the memories of the trauma she suffered begin to resurface, Rachel questions whether she can bear the agonizing road to recovery.
Drawn back to Lancaster County over the Christmas holidays, Philip struggles with the vast gulf separating him from the beautiful Plain woman. Rachel has suffered unbearable heartache; will his growing affection for her only bring more of the same? Or must Philip and Rachel sacrifice a future together for the sake of all they know and love?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the sequel to The Postcard, hysterically blind Rachel Yoder lives quietly in her Amish community in Lancaster County, PA, with her parents and her daughter. As her faith grows, her contempt for the local "powwow" doctor increases, and she refuses to be treated by him. Meanwhile, in New York City, writer Philip Bradley can't get Rachel out of his mind. His investigation into hysterical blindness and his newfound sense of peace in the Lord takes him back to Rachel to find out once and for all if they have a chance. For all collections.

Beverly Lewis weaves a story of the Plain People with beautiful shades of devout faithfulness and enduring family values, yet reveals darker underlying threads of intolerance, superstition and divination. A bittersweet novel readers will come back to again and again.

The Crossroad is the sequel to The Postcard. I would not consider it to be a standalone novel, as it really is a continuation of the first book. I would only recommend reading it, if you have read The Postcard. I enjoyed both books—The Crossroad was even better than The Postcard. I recommend both books to those who enjoy Amish fiction, particularly if you are interested in their beliefs as followers of God. Rachel, the primary female character, and the focus of the story, has lost her sight due to psychological trauma. The main plotline follows Rachel as she recognizes that she is no longer satisfied with being blind and she is ready to do whatever it takes regain her vision. Although I found this part of the story quite compelling, I was most fascinated with several of the subplots which centered on specific beliefs and traditions held sacred by the Amish. There are numerous interesting threads in the story and I would consider The Crossroad to be the antithesis of a boring read. Philip Bradley continues to impress readers in this book, as the man who might just possibly be perfect for Rachel. Several secondary characters add interest to the story. Lavina is one that I especially like. She has more than average courage and conviction, though is generally considered to be lacking in some areas. God uses her to bless others in unexpected ways. I recommend this book to those who enjoy Amish fiction.
