    This is only the second Amish book I have ever read, and probably maybe notcan t remember for sure the first book from Beverly Lewis And my overall opinion I loved it The story was captivating Interesting Heartbreaking The author delved deep into the emotions of fear, betrayal, and the grace of God Some of the characters I truly could visualize Most of the time, characters are mighty vague in your mind, but Denny was so clear and realistic that I soon found a good image of him in m This is only the second Amish book I have ever read, and probably maybe notcan t remember for sure the first book from Beverly Lewis And my overall opinion I loved it The story was captivating Interesting Heartbreaking The author delved deep into the emotions of fear, betrayal, and the grace of God Some of the characters I truly could visualize Most of the time, characters are mighty vague in your mind, but Denny was so clear and realistic that I soon found a good image of him in my head Also, the style and descriptive words were beautifully arranging, flowing you nicely through the story Summing it all up, this is an amazing read, always prodded me to keep going back forI truly think this book WILL NOT leave you disappointed Completely 5 stars And for the record, I think I love the name Mellie

    This third book in the Crossroads series is so vastly different from the first two it is hard to believe it s part of the series Very little of it takes place in Amish country It centers around a young non Amish woman, her father, and her husband The authors try to build suspense by waiting through most of the tale before divulging the secret connections, but by then, the impetus is lost The conclusion is quickly wrapped up and falls flat A disappointing end to a likewise series.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I was not aware that this was a mystery of sorts It really grabbed my attention in the first chapter, I thought it was very suspenseful, I wasn t expecting that I enjoyed all the characters, I didn t get annoyed with anyone, well except for the author Sometimes I think Beverly Lewis draws out her descriptions I start getting bored when she is trying to paint a picture through memories But that alone is not the reason I rated it 3 stars There were two reasons I didn t rate it higher Whic I was not aware that this was a mystery of sorts It really grabbed my attention in the first chapter, I thought it was very suspenseful, I wasn t expecting that I enjoyed all the characters, I didn t get annoyed with anyone, well except for the author Sometimes I think Beverly Lewis draws out her descriptions I start getting bored when she is trying to paint a picture through memories But that alone is not the reason I rated it 3 stars There were two reasons I didn t rate it higher Which makes me weary of readingBeverly Lewis books, because my two reasons are almost identical to the thing that bugged me about the ending of the Nellie Fisher series 1 The whole book you are reading about Mellie and Ryan s love I craved their reunion But all I got was 3 lines Sure she described the setting for a whole page, but I wanted the dialog I wanted to read the words they spoke to each other The words that made everything ok That bugs me I think that is one reason I loved Twlight so much, when I craved the dialog to happen between Bella and Edward, it always came Stephanie Meyers never failed to put the dialog I wanted in the book at some point but this review is not about Twilight 2 I wanted to read about Lela and Paul getting together I guess it was implied that it was headed that way, but it was never confirmed I want to read their happily ever after It was kind of just left with no closure So those were my two reasons this book was not rated higher than 3 stars I liked the book, and if Lewis had taken the time to writein closing, I probably would have REALLY liked it and rated it 4 stars

    I am amazed that I actually made it through the book That s how gag worthy it became after about a quarter of the way in Since most of Lewis work consists of fluff, not gag, I believe that the gag worthy portions were written by her husband, the co author of this book At first I was slightly interested in the book because of the suspenseful nature However, the suspense thriller aspect quickly fell prey to the typical tropes of Christian authors usual attempts to write this kind of literatu I am amazed that I actually made it through the book That s how gag worthy it became after about a quarter of the way in Since most of Lewis work consists of fluff, not gag, I believe that the gag worthy portions were written by her husband, the co author of this book At first I was slightly interested in the book because of the suspenseful nature However, the suspense thriller aspect quickly fell prey to the typical tropes of Christian authors usual attempts to write this kind of literature The bad guy is stereotypically bad In this book, one small portion is narrated from his point of view and in it, he mentions that he was thankful that he has no conscience Really Also, information comes in fits and spurts Good suspense holds the information hostage and releases only what is necessary Sometimes, a good author will not release all of the information which leaves the reader wantingand sparks her imagination.When I finish a book like this and am laughing through the ending, I know that I need to donate it as soon as possible Reading this book felt very much like a waste of time

    Of all the Beverly Lewis books that I ve read, I think this one was my least favorite The story, as a whole, was good but I didn t like the way it was written The thing that bugged me the most was that an explanation for Melissa s being on the run was not given until almost 200 pages into the book I could see 30 or 40 pages especially since the mystery started with the very first page but 200 It made for a too quick conclusion If an explanation would have been given earlier on t Of all the Beverly Lewis books that I ve read, I think this one was my least favorite The story, as a whole, was good but I didn t like the way it was written The thing that bugged me the most was that an explanation for Melissa s being on the run was not given until almost 200 pages into the book I could see 30 or 40 pages especially since the mystery started with the very first page but 200 It made for a too quick conclusion If an explanation would have been given earlier on then the action would have beenintense throughout since the reader would have some understanding of what from and why Melissa was running Still, I did choke back tears at the end and am overall glad that I read it

    I just read this for book club and I didn t love it Although, it was a quick read Not something I would pick for myself It s about a girl who picks up and leaves her husband with just a note She is being chased and winds up hiding in an Amish community As the story unravels in the last 1 4 of the book lame , the mob, big money, and her family are involved.

    This was a good clean read The centre of everything was not romance which was nice for a change I really liked Melissa Ryan was harder for me to figure out but a good addition to the book.

    I ve heard a lot about Beverly Lewis but haven t actually read one of her books so when I saw this was available on audio to listen to right away, I decided to give it a try I know she writes about the Amish community.It starts with Melissa James getting a phone call that causes her to leave right away She s distraught that she can t tell her husband, Ryan, anything but that s what she s supposed to do She s afraid for her life so she heads to Amish country In the meantime, we also hear from I ve heard a lot about Beverly Lewis but haven t actually read one of her books so when I saw this was available on audio to listen to right away, I decided to give it a try I know she writes about the Amish community.It starts with Melissa James getting a phone call that causes her to leave right away She s distraught that she can t tell her husband, Ryan, anything but that s what she s supposed to do She s afraid for her life so she heads to Amish country In the meantime, we also hear from the guy who s chasing her and she s not as safe as she thinks As the plot unfolds, we find outabout who Melissa really is and who she s running from And to what extent her husband is involved with what s going on.I really liked this book It was suspenseful and the story is revealed in bits and pieces so I had to keep listening to find out what was going to happen next I was surprised to see the page count on the book because it moved so fast and captured my attention that I thought it had to be only a couple of hundred pages If you like clean suspense, this is a book you ll want to read Mel s Shelves

    This is the one book of Lewis that I REALLY didn t like I don t know if it s a coincidence that it s the only one I ve read that she co wrote with her husband or not.As I remember it, the things that bothered me most were a statement that Russians aresusceptible to corruption than people in other cultures like, say, AMERICANS Seems a little xenophobic to me the idea that Amish life looks like A Jane Austen novel WHAT Have they read Austen I don t remember a lot of plain folks w This is the one book of Lewis that I REALLY didn t like I don t know if it s a coincidence that it s the only one I ve read that she co wrote with her husband or not.As I remember it, the things that bothered me most were a statement that Russians aresusceptible to corruption than people in other cultures like, say, AMERICANS Seems a little xenophobic to me the idea that Amish life looks like A Jane Austen novel WHAT Have they read Austen I don t remember a lot of plain folks who work hard for a living and shun all things modern in Austen s works, do you I also didn t agree with some of the religious views expressed in this novel, namely the ideas regarding original sin Of course, Lewis is altogether entitled to put forth any religious notions she wants to in her novels, and they ARE Christian fiction, but I guess it doesn t fit with my view of Christianity Again, Lewis and I don t have to believe the same things, but in this novel it seemslike she s stating her beliefs as stone cold facts and, last but certainly not least, I found the whole story completely implausible But maybe that s just me
