When I read the book it was kind of confusing at first, but I really liked the way the story unfolded- you never really know whats going on untill the end when it all comes clear! All together- great book- I highly recommend it!

I have read many of Beverly Lewis books and she is one of my favorite authors. This one is different and the mystery has kept building. I think she and David make a great team. I would strongly recommend it to all young girls and women both.

I finished this book minutes ago...If you are looking for a book that includes the Amish and Mennonites,mystery and Christ, this is a great book to read! It really was not a predictable storyline and it gave you some parts to really think about.. Seeing God's protection of His children in this book was incredible too!

An exciting twist for the Lewis. Almost like an Edgar Allen Poe ending filled with surprises. The story is one of a developing faith show through the life of her new Mennonite friend. And interesting mixture of Amish, Mennonite and Englisher fellowship and faith. I enjoyed this mystery. A must read for Beverly Lewis readers.

Although it took a little bit of time to get into Sanctuary thoroughly engulfs the reader in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing throughout the entire novel. I enjoyed the book an awful lot, but didn't care for the ending too well. It didn't seem to wrap up the storyline clearly. Too many questions arise after the book is done. Specifically about the relationship between Melissa and her husband (and his connection with the gov.) and Lela and her beau. Overall Good Book, though I wish there was a second.
