Book Review: The Proving by Beverly Lewis

It is always a joyful occassion to read and to review one of Beverly Lewis' books!  Her latest fiction, The Proving, is a perfect, relaxing read for a weekend getaway into the more simple lifestyle of the Amish in Lancaster County.

The story of Mandy returning to her Amish home in Gordonville, Pennsylvania after having escaped to Kansas to meld into the English world, is a time of "proving" but not in the way she would ever suspect.  A family death catapults her back into the situation that caused her to leave her home five years prior, forcing her to deal with emotions she thought had long since been buried.

Woven among Mandy's story is Trina, a bold, outspoken character who, in a strange happenstance, partners with Mandy who is struggling with running her mother's B&B.  As a result, the women aid and encourage each other, reaching outcomes they did not expect.

Once again, Beverly's characters reveal how God can create in any situation the opportunity for one to respond, reconcile, repent and realize how He has the absolute best for us.
