Deep down the love is usually there, but many times its so hidden we, ourselves may not even know it. I have many complicated relationships of my own, many of which are healing finally, so I really related to Tilly and her fathers difficult relationship. It reminds me so much of mine with my mother. As the years have passed, Ive learned more and more about the fears that make my mother act the way she does. Its still difficult to interact with her, but it sure helps knowing where shes coming from. Just like Tilly and her dad. Once they begin to understand each other, the healing begins. Many of us experience awful things and dont react well. It can ruin relationships and our lives if we let it. But our Lord wants us to take these things to Him and let Him do the healing for us, instead of letting our fears rule. Tilly and her dad (and other characters) were holding onto hurts they didnt need to hold onto, and it wreaked havoc in their family. Going home and dealing with these issues with humility brought them healing and forgiveness.
Also I love that these sisters were never running away from God, but from hurts and false guilt. Now their relationship with God will become even stronger as they let go of all of the baggage theyve been carrying around. Honestly, I bawled through parts of this book, and have a better understanding of my mother after experiencing the fathers struggle and pain that caused him to be so critical of Tilly.
Love and Forgiveness glues families together! Definitely worth the read!!

Made me happy to see this Amish family reunited even though the girls chose to remain Englishers. Jesus said to love one another, forgive one another and love our enemies so why don't the Amish put their faith and trust in God to watch over their children and bring them back home. Shunning them is not the answer.
