The Secret Keeper by Beverly Lewis Book Review

Cover Art

Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania--the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis's celebrated Amish novels began--with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.

Jennifer Burns shocks her family and friends when she bids farewell to her modern life in favor of the Old Order Amish world, settling in with Samuel and Rebecca Lapp.

The people of Hickory Hollow are curious about the beautiful young seeker among them--one handsome Amishman in particular--and Jenny faces many challenges in the Proving time the brethren set for her...challenges of the heart, as well as the spirit.
 
My Thoughts:
 
Another wonderful book in the Hickory Hollow series- I have read every single book written by Beverly Lewis so far and have not yet been disappointed.

I really enjoy reading an Amish fiction from a different perspective. Reading about Jenny’s desire to be and old order Amish was different and fun to read.  I also really enjoyed that Beverly included some familiar characters from past stories.

I love to revisited characters from other books. Beverly Lewis is amazing at reacquainting you with well-beloved characters.

I found that the characters were likeable. There wasn’t enough of Andrew, which we rarely saw in the book. I wanted to see more interaction between Andrew and Jenny and when their time together was so spread out and brief, I was kind of disappointed. Overall it was a great book.

You do not need to read the first book to read this one. It stands on its own just like all of Beverly Lewis’s books do.

This book has been provided to me my by Bethany House Publisher free of charge and in no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
