The Road Home

GIVEAWAY
LEWIS, BEVERLY
THE ROAD HOME

As the sun begins to rise, Lena Rose leaned against the cool part of the bus window and gazed out at the familiar landscape of her life. I'm leaving my family and everything I know behind. She sighed, trying to keep her composure.

Grieving the death of her Amish parents and the separation from her nine close-knit siblings, Lena Rose Schwartz consoles herself that her new life in Lancaster County won't be forever. Surely someday soon she will return to her beloved Michigan settlement, including her beau. But even as she holds on to hope for a reunion with those she loves most, she discovers that Lancaster holds charms of its own. Will she find the courage to open her heart to other possibilities?

My Review:

There's something about a Beverly Lewis book that screams hearth and home and family. I'm a content, happy reader for having shared a year in Lena Rose's life. Out of tragedy comes blessings, though it's hard to see them right from the start and my heart ached for the Schwartz siblings as they are divvied up among the community - all except for Lena Rose who is sent east to help cousins she barely knows.

But there's a gentle and open way about Lena that touches everyone she meets. Despite her own sorrows and worry, she's a keen observer of human nature and it isn't long before she has worked some magic among her new friends in Lancaster County. But that doesn't mean her longing for family and the familiar Amish community back in Michigan has grown any less.

With s a beau back home and an interesting fella in Lancaster County, it takes a lot of thought and prayer to figure out which road really leads home.

  4. I haven't read one of her books in quite some time, but she is always one of the "matriarchs", so to speak, of this genre, I think. Thanks for sharing!
