In the hub-bub that has been my life lately, it was lovely to sit down the other night and lose myself in a book. It was a sequel to a series that I have been enjoying thanks to Bethany House Publishers. The Guardian is another book in the Home to Hickory Hollow series by Beverly Lewis. The quaint Amish community in the heart of Lancaster county provides a beautiful setting for these books.
The Guardian really caught my attention because it centers around the life of a teacher. She has just been laid off, and finds herself housesitting for a friend. As she jogs one evening, she discovers a toddler at the edge of the road, crying, with no clothes, and unable to speak English. When she realizes that the little girl is Amish, she follows a tip given by a friend and heads out to Hickory Hollow. While there, she is intrigued by the simple way of life of this community.
The Guardian follows in the long tradition of Beverly Lewis’s Amish fiction. It is well written, and draws the reader into the customs and traditions of Amish life. It was a relaxing way to spend an evening.
The Guardian is available on Amazon, CBD, or wherever Christian books are sold.
**** I was given a copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and there was no other compensation.
