The Photograph {Book Review}

***I received a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

I enjoy reading books by Beverly Lewis. They are always easy to read and I fly through them. She is a good storyteller. Whenever I see a Beverly Lewis book available for review through the Bethany House blogger review program, I get excited! 

This book was about Eva Esch, a young woman whose parents have died. She and her sisters are living in their parents' house until their brother and his family are ready to move in. When one of her sisters runs away to the English world, Eva and her other sister try to keep things going at home while they search for her. Meanwhile, an Amish man from Ohio, Jed, comes to the area to learn buggy making techniques and the two are immediately attracted to one another. But when Eva discovers a photograph of her runaway sister in Jed's wallet, things change between the two of them. 

While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it wasn't my favorite. The story was good. She always makes her books interesting by adding little bits of excitement in the plot. I appreciate that Beverly Lewis has a lot of knowledge about the Amish that comes through in her books. It was neat to get a look at two different Amish districts and how each district varies slightly.

If you haven't read anything by Beverly Lewis, I would definitely recommend reading one of her books. If you have, what was your favorite?

My very favorite Beverly Lewis books are the ones I read years ago: The Abram's Daughters series. I enjoyed it so much and none of her other books ever came close for me. :-/ I haven't read this new one yet. In fact, it came it for me at the library, but I returned it because I had so much else to read at the time. (Admittedly, I haven't cared for her last 1-2 books so I'm not sure when I'll get this one.)
