I just finished reading the newest by Beverly Lewis, "The Guardian". She is one of my favorite authors of Amish fiction. This is another book in the home to Hickory Hollow series. You really don't have to read them in order,they are pretty much stand alone books. Jodi is house sitting her cousin's house near the Amish area. She has lost her job as a Teacher,lost her Sister to sickness and engaged to be married. After her sister's death she has turned away from prayer and does not want children. While out jogging one day she find a little girl on the side of the road. After searching she returns her to the Amish community where she lives. This brings her to meet Maryanna,Mother of the lost little girl. She is a widow with children. Jodi becomes fast friends with her and becomes the temporary teacher for the Amish school. I related to Jodi in this one a little. She had lost her faith to pray and was struggling with prayer and faith. Both ladies were grieving their losses in different ways. It was a simple story and everything ended up pretty much like what I thought it would. Hickory Hollow is a unique little place and the wise woman Ella Mae Zook returns again in this book. I love how God brought about a change in Jodi through their lives. Another great read from Beverly Lewis!
I received this book free from Bethany House for my honest review
