The Wish: A Book Review

About The Book:

Leona wondered if she was getting the carriage before the horse. Even so, she was willing to do whatever she could to bring Gloria back home--where she belonged.

Leona Speicher got the "sister" she always dreamed of the day Gloria Gingerich and her family moved to Lancaster County. The Arkansas newcomers seem to be the answer to Leona's prayers--until Gloria's father is expelled from their Old Order Amish church for reasons no one will discuss. Much to Leona's dismay, the Gingeriches suddenly pack up and disappear. Then, after a silence of several years, Gloria unexpectedly contacts Leona, who makes up her mind to go after her friend. Yet Leona's fiancé--the deacon's son--is alarmed. Will Leona's dearest wish lead to her own undoing?

My Review:

Beverly Lewis is the queen of Amish fiction and I was super excited to read her new release, The Wish! It is a stand alone novel so there is no worries that you will miss anything if you haven't read her previous books. I absolutely love her series! If you haven't read Lewis' books in the past you need to start! You will not be disappointed. 

The Wish is written in Lewis' well-loved writing style, and I adored all the characters, particularly Leona and Gloria. The relationships were developed nicely within all the characters and I was pleasantly surprised with how the book turned out.  The book is full of family, faith and even some romance to bring forth a wonderful, quick read for any fan of Amish fiction.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase The Wish at your favorite Christian book retailer from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
