The Covenant (Abram's Daughters Series #1) by Beverly Lewis

Book 1 of Abram's Daughters series from bestselling author Beverly Lewis. Years of secrecy bind the tiny community of Gobbler's Knob together more than the present inhabitants know, and the Plain folk who farm the land rarely interact with the fancy locals. So when Sadie is beguiled by a dark-haired English boy, it is Sadie's younger sister, Leah, who suffers from her sister's shameful loss of innocence. And what of Leah's sweetheart, Jonas Mast, sent to Ohio under the Bishop's command? Drawn into an incomprehensible pact with her older sister, Leah finds her dreams spinning out of control, even as she clings desperately to the promises of God. The Covenant begins a powerful Lancaster portrait of the power of family and the miracle of hope.\

This book started out a little "dry" for me but quickly picked-up my interest by the 3rd or 4th chapter. It kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. The Amish have always interested me as I grew up in Harrisburg PA and have encountered the Amish several times throughout my life. I admire their complete and total devotion to their way of life. Now reading The Betrayal and hate to put my nook down.

I enjoyed this first book in the series ... so much so that I'm now over half-way finished with the second book! I can't wait to find out what happens next! My only problem is with the formatting on the e-book; there needs to be more space between paragraphs where there is a change of character. Many times I would be confused when the point-of-view would jump to another scene or character with no break or warning, and I would have to go back and re-read that section. I am assuming this is only a problem with the e-book version because I find it hard to believe this error would have gotten past the editor. There were no other errors as far as I could tell. Thankfully, this problem does not occur in the second book!

Excellent storyline. The story weaves together the characters' lives, and the ending keeps us excited about the next book. Nothing is predictable in this story, which is great. Lewis is an excellent writer who knows how to pull in her readers.

I was truly blessed by this book. Being a "preacher's kid" I could relate to so many aspects of the character's thoughts and actions.

Well written, BUT no resolution for the main plot points. I enjoyed the character development for the most part, although I thought the descriptions of the oldest daughter, Sadie, to be lacking in depth. I have no problems with a book leaving some items to be resolved in future stories, but this book seems to build to an anti-climax. We don't know what will happen with either of the two daughters around whom the story centers. I expect at least a little resolution after I have invested some hours in reading a book!

I tried on several occasions to read this book, but just could not get interested. I had just read several books about the Amish way of life and loved them, but could not get into this book.

I was disappointed in this book. I have read several of miss lewis' books and this one failed to capture my interest. It dragged on so, then when the ending came i kept looking for more pages. It jyst stopped. Very disappointed.

This, the first of five books in the series of Abram's Daughters, will involve and sufficiently entice a reader to complete all five books.

Disappointed in this well known author. Same old theme of Amish maid pinning for an English gentleman. I'm ready for something more imaginative. The reader who enjoys sinning and being naughty would like this one.

This book shows the Amish family life, how the father and the church hierarchy control what a young girl is expected to do with her life. Many women leave the Amish faith but you will be surprised by this girl's choice.

You will love reading this book of Amish strife. The daughters are impacted by the choice of one of the sisters. This story gives you the facets of each of the sisters and their families.

Fragmented reading. In one paragraph I am reading aboutu one characture, and the next paragraph, is another characture. I do not like re reading and this story has me doing this very often. Author should hold a format of chapters and charatures in their own respective quarters
