The Judgment Book Review

I was so excited to start the second book in the series as soon as I finished the first.  I put it off a few hours so that I could get some sleep but I was happy to start The Judgment (The Rose Trilogy, Book 2) (Volume 2) by Beverly Lewis.  The second book was just as great as the first one!!

Rose Kauffman is engaged to Silas Good, a well-liked Amish fellow, so why does she still pine for Nick Franco, the former foster son of the bishop? Especially now that Nick has left the Amish community under a cloud of suspicion after the death of the bishop's biological son? Will Rose marry Silas, even while struggling with romantic feelings for Nick?

Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, has returned to live at her parents' farm with her young daughter. Hen and her modern husband, Brandon, are separated by mutual agreement, although he is threatening to sue for custody of their daughter if Hen does not return soon. Will the judge rule in Brandon's favor? Is there any way Hen can reestablish her place among the People without sacrificing her marriage?

I finished this book a little too fast because I gave up everything just to read a little more of the book.  I was sitting at the bounce house place with my son (which is loud for those of you who have never been) and reading my book wherever I could get a seat.  This book included the judgment for the Bishop to be asked to not lead the people after his adopted son has left the Amish people to rejoin the "English" world.  The Amish leaders see that this means that he doesn't have the influence that leaders should have.  At the same time, Rose is engaged to Silas Good and planning their future together while her sister, Hen, is loosing her marriage because she is pulled to the old life.  There is tons going on in this book that makes it hard to stop reading.  I hope that you try out this series and this wonderful book for yourself.  Add it to your reading list soon but make sure you save enough time to do nothing but read if you can't put it down like me!!!  I know that you will enjoy the wonderful characters and writing as much as I did (right before starting the third book right after finishing the second).  I hope that you enjoy this series soon.
