Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

For Tilly and Ruth, returning to Lancaster County for their parents' landmark wedding anniversary is a bittersweet occasion. Both had left the Amish world; Tilly to marry an Englisher and Ruth, after the disastrous breakup with the man she hoped to marry. Now these sisters are back, each bringing with them memories of things lost or undone. A Brenda Lewis novel to be remembered.

    Tilly has tried to put her past behind her, she is happy now liv

    Tilly has tried to put her past behind her, she is happy now living with her husband and twin daughters. She still lives rather plain, but does live in the English world. She has one member of her Amish family living English near her, and enjoys Ruth and her new life.
    Tilly was the black sheep of her Amish family; she blamed herself for the death of her baby sister Anna. When the note comes that the family is holding an anniversary party for her parents, she doesn’t want to go. Ruth also has decided they will not attend.
    Then comes a call to Ruth about their Dad’s health, and their decisions are reevaluated, and both go home to face the family. Can’t even imagine, you feel almost split in two. Leaving behind your safe life, and wanting to see your family, but knowing how they feel about your leaving.
    This is the story of secrets, forgiving, and a loving relationship with God. How life changes and feelings are soothed when we submit to God’s will, not our own. A very hard, fulfilling way to live, with God in the center, but will all be able to accept what he wants?
    A different Amish story here, things are not always as they appear, and not just Tilly blames herself, others also feel responsible, and all need forgiveness. Will this family ever find peace, a locked room, a stolen cap, and an old love?
    This is a great page-turner of a read, I wanted to find the answers to the clues that were offered, and what a surprise. Also the title of the book, and the effect that the River has on this story. Enjoy!

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
