The Rose Trilogy book 2
Bethany House, Publishers
Beverly Lewis was the first author that I read about the Amish and I think I have almost all of her books on my shelves. I have not read the first book in this series "The Thorn" and her third books comes out in September 2011 "The Mercy"
As I started to read this story I wish I had read the fist book as it details things that are in this book and I was missing. But all in all this one was good also, as Hen had left he English husband Brandon and with her little girl Mattie Sue came back to live at her parents farm. Rose and Silas are engaged but can she forget Nick?
Their Mother was in a lot of pain after her accident that had left her in a wheel chair, but she would not go to a doctor to see if something could be done. Will they lose their mother also.
As the story continues I begin to learn more about the family and things that had happened in the first book. The Bishop son had been killed in an accident and the foster son Nick had left his home. Rose and Nick were really good friends and she missed him very much.
This book as all of Ms. Lewis' is a joy to read and I was really surprised at the way the book finished up, it was something I really was not looking for.
Thanks to LibraryThing: Early Reviewers for this advanced copy for my review.
