The second book in the Rose Trilogy, this was a wonderful continuation of the intriguing story of a Amish family in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I don't know how Lewis does it, but she always writes a book that captures your interest and doesn't let go till the end of the novel. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a good novel by this great author.
