The Telling Book Review

I couldn't stop reading this great series of Amish fiction and I was super glad to go on to the third book in the series right after finishing the other book.  It was the best of the series because some of the different issues going throughout the book were resolved and different questions answered.  The Telling (Seasons of Grace, Book 3)

Grace Byler leaves Bird-in-Hand in a car to search for her mother in Ohio with her friend, Heather Nelson that she only met a few weeks before. Meanwhile, Lettie continues her private quest to find the missing piece of her life. As clues take her from state to state, she is increasingly torn between the family she has left behind and the yearning for her long-lost child. Struggling to come to terms with a grave medical diagnosis, Heather is determined to forgo traditional medicine in hopes of finding answers and healing in Amish country but her father disagrees. The weekend before she enters the detox program she offers to drive her Amish friend, Grace, to Ohio to find her mother. Grace is worried that if her mother doesn't come home soon then she will undergo the Bann or Shunning and they won't be able to talk to her anymore.  In order to find out what happens, you have to pick up the books in this series and see!!!

I loved it!!  I was so excited to read the third book in the series that I almost picked it up the second that I finished it but since it was really late at night that I finished the second one, I did wait until the next day.  Super glad that I did wait because it is really is a shame to rush through such great books and then have all of the great characters be over.  It was a bitter sweet ending because it was a great series but it had come to an end.  I think that you will really enjoy this series if you enjoy Beverly Lewis or like Amish fiction.  If you haven't tried either, this is a great series to try on because there are so many dealings with the "English" world that even if you don't relate to the Amish lifestyle, you can relate to the other characters in the books.  They are all going through problems in their family and trying to deal with it the best that they can.  I hope that you pick up this book at your local library or bookstore and enjoy!!
