Timepiece Book Review

I was reading Timepiece by Beverly Lewis when the due date came and I wasn't finished.  I went to the library to get it renewed by one more day.  I was so excited to get the chance to finish it before returning it without having late fees.  I stayed up late and finished it all to return when before the new due date.  I love the library but when I get too many books, I am the only one who suffers!!

As the only daughter, Sylvia Miller of The Tinderbox has always held a special place in her Old Order family, one Adeline Pelham jeopardizes when she shows up at the Millers' Hickory Hollow farm. It isn't that Adeline means to be a threat, but her very existence is a reminder of the painful secret that has so recently upended the Miller household. And with Sylvia and her mother still struggling to come to terms with that news, this is a challenging time to welcome an Englisher--especially this Englisher--into their midst.

Despite the Millers' unexpected hospitality, Adeline is well aware that she's treading on Sylvia's turf, and she feels guilty about doing so when Sylvia is grappling with issues of her own. Not only is Sylvia trying to rebuild her trust in her father, but she's uncertain what to make of her once-promising engagement to Titus Kauffman, who hasn't pursued her since she confronted him. Adeline wishes she could help Sylvia, but she's not sure that either she or Sylvia is ready for that level of closeness in their relationship.  Can God make something good come out of the mistakes of the past? Or does Adeline's arrival mark one too many surprises for the Millers and their Amish community?

I had enjoyed the other books in the series and was excited when the newest book came up in my reserve shelf.  I didn't know that it was part of the series but I know that I like all of Beverly Lewis books!  I thought that the Amazon description was the worst book description and I disagree with most of it but I luckily didn't read it before the book.  The daughter that the Earnest Miller didn't know he had showed up after his Bann was over confessing about the marriage that he had before becoming Amish.  Adeline is English and grew up with her mother and didn't know anything about her father until her mother passed away.  She came to met them and learned that they were very welcoming.  She stayed much longer and learned much more then she expected.  Her sister, Sylvia, is going through a lot with the new sister showing up.  Her engagement ends over this and other reasons which Adeline starts to blame her self so she leaves.  To find out what she learned through this process, you will have to pick up the book and read for yourself.  I hope that you check out this book and enjoy it as much as I did but make sure you check out the earlier books in the series too!!
