This book had so many story lines in one book it was scattered. The ending of the book never wrapped up any of the story lines. SO unlike Lewis. Very disappointing.

NOTHING RESOLVED -IT LEFT YOU HANGING. This could have been a 5 star book if it gave answers to a few of the questions it set you up for. I loved the story line and it kept me intrigued but i was extremely disappointed at the end when nothing was resolved. It left you hanging.

Have always loved Ms. Lewis' books, but this series was very disappointing. It seemed the book was put together wrong, as I felt like I already knew exactly what was going to happen.

I agree completely with Sandy_Howell (see below). And I live right next door to the Amish, can trace my roots to the original settlers and know all these little towns like the palm of my hand. Nowhere in the book could I find mention of a 3rd novel in the series. I tried several stores and finally checked online and found this. Now, I can be Amish patient when I'm waiting for rain for my garden but when it is pouring and I settle down to read and find the end of the story missing...... ach, ye left me hangin by me suspenders, woman. Sandy_Howell wrote: This new series by Beverly Lewis tends to leave me feeling short changed at the end of each book. When I read "The Secret" and now after reading "The Missing", I felt that there was no closure....it just felt like someone must have ripped out the last chapter so I couldn't read it. I know its done on purpose to encourage readers to get the next book to keep the story going, but I just felt like it was too much of a cliff hanger, especially considering there is a several month wait before the next one comes out. It makes me wish I had stumbled upon this series later on after it is complete. I still gave it four stars because it really is a good story and kept my interest---I just wish it would have kept going a bit longer._________________________________________________

I enjoy Beverly Lewis' books and when a friend gave them to me I was excited to read them. We all have secrets and that is the catcher from the beginning to the end of the third book.
