The Photograph Book Review

I was looking at the options for reviewing and I found The Photograph by Beverly Lewis which I couldn't pass up so I didn't even look at the other details of the books.  I love the picture on the cover and couldn't wait to read another book by Beverly Lewis.  The book was delivered shortly after I requested it and I got to read it pretty quickly because I had nothing from the library and I was almost done with the books that I had read.  Super excited to pick up this book which I knew next to nothing about and find out what the Photograph was!!!!

Eva Esch and her sisters are in a predicament. With the passing of their widowed mother, Eva's older brother Menno plans to move his growing family into the Eden Valley farmhouse where they all grew up, leaving little room for his three single sisters. Surely, Menno reasons, at least one of them will marry this coming wedding season. Eva does hope to marry, but she isn't sure she wants to give up her sweet shop for the life of a farmer's wife, and she has no other prospects. When younger sister, Lily, disappears in the night, leaving only a brief note, Eva fears she has been wooed away from the People by an outsider. And when Jed Stutzman, a young Amish buggy maker from Ohio, shows up in Lancaster with a photo of a Plain young woman, Eva's world begins to tilt. She feels powerfully drawn to the quietly charming stranger--but the woman in the forbidden photograph is no stranger at all. . . .

Amazing!  Another home run hit by Beverly Lewis.  I loved this book about a family trying to figure out where to go next after loosing their father and mother and now the three unmarried daughters may have to leave their childhood home because their brother is going to move into the house and there isn't enough room for everyone. It might not be the way things are done for normal Americans but it is the way that things are done in the Amish culture so I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen to these sisters when one of the sisters left the small town.  I was fascinated to see the process of this book unfolding and getting to know each of the characters.  Each person is focused on a lot in this book because it seems that it might be the only one in the series so there are no more to look forward to with these characters but who knows if they might not show up in another book she writes soon.  I hope that you check out this book at your local library or bookstore soon.  It is an amazing book to add to your reading list for this fall.
