She makes it hard to put a book down once you start reading.

Each book follows her struggles, as she tries to live her life to the best of her ability and on the path she believes God wants her to follow.

I read the first 2 books in the series while vacationing at my sisters. They were remarkable and I can't wait to get the entire set for myself so I can read the 3rd book and pass them on the my daughter and friends. Wonderful story about a very brave and very strong willed young girl who searched for her identify and kept her faith!

When I thought of donating the books to my church library, I now have second thoughts. These books are worth saving in your own library. Every book kept me on the edge of my seat, and glued to my hands. I couldn't put them down. Katie (Katherine) went where her heart was, and she had a heart large enough for two societies: The Amish and her mother's legacy. Hope I see more books on the Amish, the most wonderful people on Earth. Bless those Amish folk.

Beverly Lewis has got to be my favorite author these days. I thoroughly enjoyed this book series (which included all 3 novels in one large edition). I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves Christian fiction - and anyone who loves to read about the Amish. Excellent series - can't wait to read more!!

This set of books is precious. I never had a clue what Amish life involved or how they compared to the Mennonites. And then add the twist of the modern world girl in an Amish setting. Well, the set is just dynamite and I will keep them always to perhaps read again someday or share with grandchildren when they come along. Precious, precious, precious.

This is one trilogy that I couldn't get enough of! The first book is super, but the 2nd drags a little. The third, in my opinion, is the best.
I highly recommend this series!

Format: Paperback
These books were amazing! Beverly Lewis has captured a truly difficult character. Katie is a girl torn between two worlds, the one she grew up in (Amish) and the one she wants to live in ("fancy"). When she discovers a long kept secret, she finds that she gets heartwrenchingly thrown into the fancy world by her people. After spending some time with the "English", Katie begins the place she grew up and the people she grew up with. Eventually, she asks herself one question-Where do I belong?

More About the Author

I've had my nose in a book, for as long as I remember. When I was about 9 years old, I started writing my own stories. By sixth grade, I'd hand-written a 66-page semi-autobiographical book titled, "She Shall Have Music."

After I was married and our three children were in middle school, I began submitting articles and short fiction to various magazines.

My first book (Holly's First Love) was published in May 1993, the start of a 14-book series for pre-teen girls. Soon after, my first chapter book was published for 7-10-year-old readers ("Big Bad Beans") which later became part of my 24-book series, The Cul-de-Sac Kids. I wrote another long-running series for girls, titled "SummerHill Secrets," which was set very close to Neffsville, PA, where I grew up--near the heart of Amish country.

But it was the story of my grandmother Ada Buchwalter's shunning by her ultra-strict father and subsequently her old order Mennonite community that nudged me toward writing adult fiction. THE SHUNNING was published in 1997 by Bethany House Publishers, and along with its sequels, has touched a nerve in millions of readers intrigued by the Plain tradition of Lancaster County, PA. The Hallmark Movie Channel will air the movie, "Beverly Lewis's The Confession" on January 19, 2013--the sequel to "The Shunning" movie.

My passion for Amish-related stories continues to keep me up at night, and I'm presently editing the 2nd book (The Bridesmaid) in my new series: "Home to Hickory Hollow," due out September 11, 2012.

When I'm between writing deadlines, I enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains with my husband. Cooking from scratch, playing Mozart at the piano, and making family memory albums, as well as traveling to meet my devoted readers during book tours, are some of my very favorite things. I also adore reading biographies and memoirs, as well as classic literature.

Book One of my present series: The Fiddler, is available now.
