MUST YOU ATONE?

atoneBeverly Lewis understands and write of the Amish Culture better than many who attempt to put pen to paper. Being born in Pennsylvania and living among them she writes with a perceptive and thoughtful heart.

The Atonement is a story of a young Amish woman, Lucy Flaud, who is dealing with grief and guilt from a long past time in her life. She has spent the intervening years trying to atone by loving and doing for others.

Her Daed, Christian, is also grieving, for the same incident, however, for a much different reason. He starts attending a grief group where he meets Englischers and befriends one young man, Dale Wyeth.

Tobe Glick is Lucy’s best friend but has secretly loved her for years. However, Lucy holds her secret so close she feels unworthy to return his offer of courtship.

Will she be able to get past her long-ago sin to forgive, live and love again? Will Tobe be able to see the woman she is now or will he reject her?

I loved this book as I have all of Beverly Lewis’s novels. As always there is much to glean and learn from her writings.

I received this book free for an honest review from Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group.
