After five years as an Englisher, Amanda Dienner is shocked to learn her mother has passed away and left her Butterfly Meadows, Lancaster County's most popular Amish bed-and-breakfast. What's more, the inn will only truly be hers if Mandy can successfully run it for twelve months. Reluctantly, Mandy accepts the challenge, no matter that it means facing the family she left behind - or that the inn's clientele expect an Amish hostess! Can Mandy fulfill the terms of her inheritance? Or will this prove a dreadful mistake?
Classic Lewis. There's an old-fashioned flare to her storytelling and reading one of her books always makes me feel like I'm sitting in a cozy kitchen listening to a story being told by an elderly Amish woman as she looks back on her life and imparts wisdom to her young listeners.
In The Proving (great title tie-in) Lewis explores the complicated dynamics of estranged sisters. Forgiveness is at the heart of this story -- and the freedom letting go of past hurts can bring. Mandy's on a year long journey of self-discovery as she comes to terms with her past and finds a new strength in her faith and family.
