The powerful family saga of four Amish sisters whose way of life and faith in God are as enduring as Lancaster's signature horse and buggy. Or so it seems...
Jonas Mast has given Leah Ebersol reason to hope again. When events threaten to split the Mast and Ebersol families even further apart, will Leah and her sister Sadie reveal their closely guarded secret?

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!

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.

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!

This book was the perfect ending to a captivating series. Abram's Daughters is a fabulous series full twists, family secrets, and unpredictable situations while continually talking of God's love and how God has impacted the lives of the characters. Mrs. Lewis did an excellent job of fully developing the characters. The work God was doing in their lives was very evident. Each character really changed and progressed during the 20 yr period. This final book resolved many of the questions that remained unanswered in the first two books. Although, one of the final twists was a bit far fetched.
