The Wish, by Beverly Lewis

****4 stars

Hidden Secrets

Authors like Beverly Lewis have long made the Amish lifestyle seem idyllic and peaceful. But in The Wish, Mrs. Lewis brings up a question most Englischer readers have probably asked: would an Amish person who went Englisch really have a desire to return to his or her roots?

Friendship,heartache,romance,and hidden secrets all play a part in this latest offering by Lewis. I sure identified when Leona wishes she belonged to another family...what child hasn't viewed a friend or relative's family as more fun than his/her own?

Part of the ending seemed to come together way too smoothly for as much difficulty as was presented over certain issues and personalities. Very good story, just not one of my personal favorites.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own and are freely offered without compensation.
