Bethany House The Secret, Hardcover

In the seemingly ordinary Amish home of Grace Byler, secrets abound. Why does her mother weep in the night? Why does her father refuse to admit something is dreadfully wrong? Then, in one startling moment, everything Grace assumed she knew is shattered. Her mother's disappearance leaves Grace reeling and unable to keep her betrothal promise to her long-time beau. Left to pick up the pieces of her life, Grace questions all she has been taught about love, family, and commitment. Heather Nelson is an English grad student, stunned by a doctor's diagnosis. Surely fate would not allow her father to lose his only daughter after the death of his wife a few years before. In denial and telling no one she is terminally ill, Heather travels to Lancaster County--the last place she and her mother had visited together. Will Heather find healing for body and spirit?

I enjoy reading the books written by Beverly Lewis and this trilogy (The Secret is the first in the series) has it all, but especially God. A great, quick read but with lots of intrigue. I will pass it on to friends who also enjoy books by Lewis.

Though the story is interesting I find when I finished this book I was left unsatisfied. I am having a hard time beginning the second book of the series because I find the story is moving very slow. I feel like nothing was concluded in the first book and that is a little frustrating. However, the characters are likeable and maybe the next in the series will develop a little more now that the secret is known to the readers.

This was a really great book. I love all of Beverly Lewis books but I especially love her Amish series. It gives those of us that would never know anything about the Amish a look inside their world. It is great.
