Overview

Readers anxiously await the second book in this moving series filled with mystery and family secrets, love and loss, heartbreak and healing.

Twenty-one-year-old Grace Byler longs to find her missing mother and to uncover the secret that drove her to leave them three weeks before. Grace suspects the reason has to do with her father and his reserved, uncommunicative ways. This conviction led Grace to break off her betrothal to her quiet, staid beau, and she is now resigned to remain single. But when the young Amishman she thought was courting her best friend takes a sudden interest in her, Grace is befuddled and wonders if he can be trusted.

"Englisher" Heather Lang has come to Amish country to relive fond memories of her mother and to contemplate a grave medical prognosis of her own. While in Bird-in-Hand, Heather meets Grace Byler and the two young women strike up a fast friendship, amazed by how well they click.

Following the only clue they have, Grace and Heather travel together in hopes of finding Grace's mother and bringing her home. Will they find what they're looking for...or something much more?

    Very Disappointed

    I'm a fan of Beverly Lewis .I pre-ordered the books in this series and waited each time with much anticipation only to be DISAPPOINTED. Thus far both in this series have not been up to the story telling standard expected of her.The first book was padded and predicable like an amateur writter.In the second book "The Missing" she spent the first third of the book rehashing the first book.The remainder of the book had so many unresolved issused I knew that they were the set up for book three And other series.However,I won't be pre-ordering them and I'll shop in the used book section for her future books.

    Disapppinting

    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.

    Touched by Grace

    As usual, Beverly Lewis skillfully portrays human relationships, human struggles, and spiritual hunger with thoroughness and tenderness. Suspense propels the plot, leaving the reader satisfied with the interwoven story lines presented in The Missing and eagerly awaiting release of the third book in the series--The Telling.

    NOTHING RESOLVED -IT LEFT YOU HANGING. This could have been a 5

    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.

    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.

    Too predictable

    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.

    Secrets

    I couldn't wait till this second book came out I'm late in writting the review and already read her last book to this series. Story line is touching and moving to the heart and the responsibilites of Grace and the family as they wait for word of thier mother who left in secret to find healing and closer of her heart. Beverly Lewis is a exceptional author you must read all her books she will never let you down as each story is as enchanting as the first.

    ach, ye left me hangin by me suspenders, woman.

    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.

    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._________________________________________________

    The Missing

    This book is just as spellbinding as the first in the series. The characters keep you very interested. The interaction between the grandparents, son-in-law you can feel the secret that keep them apart. i can imagine how hard it is for the family to try and continue each day with the wife, mother daughter missing. I can't wait for the next chapter to start.

    A Good Story

    As usual Beverly Lewis engages the reader in the story. This book was well written with good development of characters. She leaves you hanging for the third book in the trilogy.
