Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Maryanne, an Amish widow, is no stranger to tragedy. First she lost her husband and now her daughter, Sarah, has disappeared. Jodi, angry with God over the death of her only sister, is house-sitting for friends in Lancaster, PA. While out on a morning run, she stumbles upon the lost girl. Sarah doesn't speak English, and nobody seems to have heard about a missing child. Jodi develops a bond with the youngster as Sarah begins to trust her. When an unexpected journey takes them both to Hickory Hollow, Jodi meets Maryanne, and both women's lives are changed forever. VERDICT Credited with pioneering this popular genre with the 1997 publication of The Shunning, Lewis is known for her richly detailed, homey stories that balance the Amish and the secular worlds and deal with issues of lifestyle and faith. This third series entry fits that formula nicely, and it stands well on its own for new readers. Lewis's name alone will generate a long holds list, but the title should also attract readers of Linda Byler and Vanetta Chapman.
