The Wish by Beverly Lewis Book Review

The Wish by Beverly Lewis

"You really think this is a gut idea, goin' clear out there, spendin' time with folk who've left the People?"

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?

Beverly Lewis, born in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, has more than 17 million books in print. Her stories have been published in twelve languages and have regularly appeared on numerous bestseller lists, including the New York Times and USA Today. Beverly and her husband, David, live in Colorado, where they enjoy hiking, biking, making music, and spending time with their family. Learn more at 

My Thoughts:

 Beverly Lewis is a long time favorite of mine. She knows how to make the characters tug at your heart. Her writing portrays a lot of emotions and she makes you feel like you are part of the story.

This was a different plot for Beverly Lewis as the focus is on two Amish girls who find a strong bond of friendship that they feel like they are more sisters than friends. As all stories go something horrible happens and one has to move away.

I really enjoyed Leona’s character and her strengths. She was an enduring character. I wasn’t a big fan of Joe.

I’m not going to give away the story. If you like reading Amish Fiction then you will enjoy this story. I thought it was well written. The pace of the story was good and it took me no time to read the book.

As usual I can’t wait to read the next book for Beverly Lewis’s coming out in April 2017, The Ebb Tide.
