The Judgment by - Beverly Lewis (Review and ARC giveaway)

4 STARS

ABOUT THE BOOK - Rose Kauffman is engaged to Silas Good, a well-liked Amish fellow, so why does she still pine for Nick Franco, the former foster son of the bishop? Especially now that Nick has left the Amish community under a cloud of suspicion after the death of the bishop's biological son? Will Rose marry Silas, even while struggling with romantic feelings for Nick?

Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, has returned to live at her parents' farm with her young daughter. Hen and her modern husband, Brandon, are separated by mutual agreement, although he is threatening to sue for custody of their daughter if Hen does not return soon. Will the judge rule in Brandon's favor? Is there any way Hen can reestablish her place among the People without sacrificing her marriage?

MY REVIEW - I liked this book a lot! I do want to remind people though that this is the second book in the series. I did not realize this, I thought it was the first. I was a l little confused at first, but I soon caught on as to what was happening.


Beverly Lewis sure has a way with character development! I loved the people in this book, especially Hen. She was my favorite. But... boy what a jerk her husband is! Beverly even has a way with jerks, LOL. Now I really want to read the third book so I can find out what happens.
 
This is a very nice, quick and enjoyable read. Of course if you love all things Amish then this is a series you won't want to miss. I thought this book traveled right along and kept my interest all the way through. This is a Christian book so no sex or swearing.

Thank you - LibraryThing: Early Reviewers for this advanced copy to review.

GIVEAWAY - I am giving away my ARC of this book. Since it is an ARC the cover is a little different, so don't be surprised when you get it.
