Customer Reviews

Very captivating and well written.
MS Librarian
While I found this entire series unrealistic, once in a while it's nice to read a story where the characters end up happy, even if that's sometimes not possible.
MAB
I thoroughly enjoyed the series and look forward to reading more of this author's books.

What a nice ending to the terrific series of books by Lewis! The Revelation begins with Leah's long lost love, Jonas, coming back to Grasshopper Level and attempting to reunite with both his church and his never-forgotten love. Long-kept secrets must find their way into the open, old hostilities must be resolved, and new and old loves must be kindled. Lewis ties every thread up neatly, even if at times it does become a bit "preachy." Still, these characters have found a special place in my heart and will do so to anyone who reads these books. The character arcs over the series are believable and the situations they face must be overcome in ways that bring them to know themselves and God in new ways. Highly recommended.

It's hard to find the words to explain how much I enjoyed this series and how it captured my attention and heart! It had a sort-of "Fiddler on the Roof" feeling, where Abram (and the Amish community) progressively relaxes its strict standards over the years without sacrificing their beliefs and traditions, beginning with the harsh shunning of Sadie and ending with the acceptance of the younger children becoming Mennonites and Abe's freer way of life.

The Revelation doesn't stand on its own, but rather neatly ties together everything that was pending from the previous stories. Yes, new elements were introduced which could have been developed further (two examples: the revelation of, and subesquent relationship between, Leah and her natural father, and a more deeply detailed involvement into how Lyddie and Jake find happiness after it is revealed why they cannot stay together despite their strong love). Yet, it wasn't the author's purpose to expand this series into new directions but rather to provide closure to this lovely and often troubled family. After immersing myself into the lives of this family and community over the years through the previous 4 books, this purpose was very satisfyingly achieved.

I couldn't help my tears from flowing as soulmates Leah and Jonas resumed their romance after 20 years of being unfairly kept apart by circumstances beyond their control. Their renewed courtship was very touching!

Format: Paperback
Leah Ebersol has patiently waited several years for her one true love to return to their Gobbler's Knob Amish community. Jonas Mast had gone to Ohio following a hurtful misunderstanding caused by feuding parents.

Having discovered that Leah had remained faithful to their love even after so long, he could do nothing less than go back to her and do whatever the bishop deemed necessary to prove himself worthy of the People. Even if it meant giving up his love of woodworking and spending his life toiling in the fields or the blacksmith shop instead.

Jonas's return would ultimately spark another, one that would bring with it the inevitability of opening long-buried secrets. Jonas's younger brother, Jake, comes back to Gobbler's Knob under the pretense of speaking to the bishop on Jonas's behalf. In actuality, he wishes to court and eventually marry Leah's sister Lydiann.

Unbeknownst to the main players, this is a relationship that cannot happen and bringing the reason to light could cause permanent damage to the already tenuous association between the Ebersol and Mast families. This Pandora's Box will have long-reaching and potentially long-lasting effects.

In Beverly Lewis's fifth and final installment to the Abram's Daughters series, the sins of the past and the hopes of the future are all wrapped up into one tidy package. Lewis has a firm grasp on the inner workings of the Amish community - their language, customs and beliefs - and weaves an intriguing, albeit sometimes confusing, story.

I too looked forward to this book since reading (and purchasing) all the previous ones in this series. I have to say that I liked this series conclusion more than the "Katie Lapp" series conclusion. There's more of the happy ever after side to it and not so many dissappointments. One of the main questions for me was how Lyddie and Jake were going to be told that they were aunt and nephew, and I think that ended quite well.

At last, all the secrets are out in the open, there's no more loose ends and pretty much everybody is happy! A perfect ending!

In this final book of Abram's daughter's, many things are happening at once. Sadie has settled in well, and she and Leah have become the very best of friends. Abram has married Aunt Lizzie, Leah's birthmom.

Lydiann is well into her rumpspringhe years, and happens to fall in love with cousin Jake Mast, of whom all of the Ebersol's are estranged from and appears that it would be that way forever. And Leah and Sadie both know that they are going to have to get Lydiann away from Jake as she is his aunt and does not know it. Sadie gave birth to Jake and then Dr. Scoltz swapped her baby with Fannie Mast's dead twin, knowing that it would have been a disgrace to Sadie to keep Jake at the time. When the terrible secret is discovered, Henry Mast, the father wants Jake out of his sight, and is killing mad. And since Jonas is very much in love with Leah, he goes along with Jake too. This is a sad state of affairs.

Mary Ruth is very happy and is expecting her second baby in this book.

Sadie is falling in love with Eli Yoder, and the two go courting together and eventually make plans to marry by the end of the book.

Hannah is expecting yet another baby, and is always fighting depression constantly. She becomes involved with this witchcraft doctor, which makes Gid very displeased. When he finds out what Hannah is doing, he makes her promise to not give in to the witchcraft doctor again. But when Hannah breaks her promise the second time, it causes a rift between the two for awhile.

Bishop Bontrager has forbidden Leah and Jonas to marry until Jonas's proving is complete, which the bishop has extended when he finds out that Jonas has been working with wood, which he is not supposed to do.

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.
