Editorial Reviews

As austere and graceful as their pastel covers, the Abram's Daughters novel series by Beverly Lewis invites us into an Old Order community where good people wrestle with problems of faith, love, and responsibility. The Revelation brings this gripping three-generation story to an unforgettable multi-tiered conclusion.
Romantic Times
"Lewis ties up the threads of love, tragedy, and intrigue woven throughout the first four novels. Her signature fluency in Amish life delights as always."

A Romance Review
"The Revelation is the powerful conclusion to the ABRAM'S DAUGHTERS series. I enjoyed reading this book and seeing how it all panned out in the end. The Mast and Ebersol families will long hold a place in my heart; Beverly Lewis has done a masterful job creating their characters. It was a joy watching them grow."
Romance Junkies
"Beverly Lewis wraps up her five-book series, ABRAM'S DAUGHTERS, with The Revelation . It is a touching, tender story of Leah and Jonas and their deep love and longing for each other. A long-kept secret will finally be revealed, touching the lives of several families. All loose ties from past novels in this series are tied up, and readers will be pleased with its conclusion. I highly recommend the whole ABRAM'S DAUGHTERS series to inspirational romance lovers."

The Secret (Seasons of Grace Series #1) 3.8 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 252 reviews.
Sandy_Howell More than 1 year ago
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.

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.

Let me start out by saying that this is book #1 in this new series, and it is definitely the start of something good (but only the start). Here we have some amazing storylines that start to intersect as we go along... Grace is from a nice Amish family, living a nice Amish life when weird things start happening. Mom can't sleep at night and wanders around outside, Dad doesn't want to discuss it, Grandma seems to know more than she is letting on... but not enough. Then one night Grace's world is turned upside down. Her mother is gone and no one knows why. Can her family function without mom? Can they survive the scrutiny of the Amish community? What is the deal with Heather who is coming to stay with an Amish family? The interesting thing about "The Secret" is that even though the big secret is revealed before the book is over it definitely asks more questions than it answers. This book is not about resolution, it is about questions... so don't read it if you are not planning on reading the rest of the series! I will say that it is worth the read and Beverly Lewis is a master at crafting characters and storylines - so dive into the mystery that is the Amish community!

I'm always excited when Beverly Lewis releases a new book. In my opinion, she's the standard for Amish fiction and I usually compare all others to her. I feel like I've learned a lot of the Amish culture through her books and I especially enjoy when she allows English culture to blend with the Amish. This book showcases the lifestyle of an Amish family who appears to have it all on the outside, but inside is secretly hurting. Grace seems to pick up that there's something not quite right with her parents, but since their culture doesn't allow for straightforward questioning, she's usually left in the dark. Heather's story was a nice interlude in between Grace and Lettie's tale. I enjoyed reading about her life especially since she was from the Williamsburg area near my hometown. I wasn't sure exactly the connection was between her and Grace and Lettie but I think I might have an inkling. While I enjoyed reading this book, I felt it was a bit predictable. About halfway through the book, I guessed what was going to happen and I was right. I enjoyed the story but I felt that it's a plot that has been done many times before and even feels like the reverse of one of Lewis's own books. I can understand the feelings that Grace's mother might have been going through but it wasn't really fair of her to leave the rest of her family in the dark. I mean they have no idea what's going on, and then she just gets up and leaves with only a note. Her family is totally confused and unaware of Lettie's past. The first half of the story seems to build up to Lettie's secret but since I guessed it halfway, it felt like a letdown. I also have a pretty big feeling I can guess as to the plot of the next book and how the story continues. I'm hoping I'm wrong, because I really dislike predictable plots. As I said before, Beverly Lewis is a favorite author of mine and I will be reading the next book. I just hope that she will prove me wrong!
