We all have wishes, some come true and some we wait and never see. The Wish by Beverly Lewis is a book about a wish that is more hope. A hope in the future and God’s ultimate grace.
Amish Leona Speicher forms a sisterly friendship with a neighbor girl, Gloria Gingerich, and her family. Gloria’s father is banned from the church and then one day they are gone with no warning. Leona is devastated and prays continually for her friend for several years.
Gloria unexpectedly sends a letter that gives Leona concern so she decides to go see her friend. The Gingerich’s have gone “fancy” or become Englisch. Gloria is the only one who misses the Plain life and seems to be having questions as to the direction she wants her life to go.
Has Leona’s prayers and her wish been granted? What will Gloria decide and will the community accept her?
I received this book free for an honest review.
