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!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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!
