I decided to contact "Bethany House" about being a book reviewer. I was accepted, and to my
delight my first book is by Beverly Lewis "The Secret Keeper". I love Beverly Lewis and met
her last year in Lancaster Pa. I admire the Amish way of life and like reading about them.
The "Secret Keeper", is the forth book in her "Hickory Hollow" series.
I don't know if any of you have read the "Shunning" or saw the movie but I sure you were
like me and wondered what ever happen to dear Katie Lapp after her shunning. Well you
can read this book to find out.
The main character of this book is a young lady Jenny Burns, she comes from a well to do
English family. She has never been satisfied with her family's way of life, so commercial
and everything having to be the best. Even from a small child she yearned for the more simple
things of life. Then as a teen she met a sweet amish girl on a visit to Lancaster Co. Pa.
They exchanged letters for years. Jenny admired her friends way of life and decided to
be a Seeker. That is what they call an Englisher wanting to become Amish.
She stays with an amish family Rebecca and Samuel Lapp. She has to go through a time
of proving. She learns so much about the amish culture, more hard work and disipline than
she ever imagined.
She also learns a secret. She is torn about whether to betray the people she has learned to love,
or come clean with the secret she knows that she must, to be accepted into proving her new faith.
I loved this book, I felt like I was right there learning about and working with the amish people.
I recommend this book highly. The "Secret Keeper", is a must read for the amish book lover!
