    The River, Beverly Lewis's newest Amish novel, is filled with emotional struggles and difficult family relationships.

    Tilly and Ruth, two sisters who left their Amish family and settled into new lives in the English world, reluctantly visit their home and family and find that many of the hard feelings from their past are still very much alive. As they face hurts and fears they tried to leave behind, new truths come out and potentially life-changing decisions have to be made.

    In her typical fashion, Beverly Lewis draws from her personal connection with the Plain people to paint a vivid picture of Amish characters and details of their lives. There is a great deal of tension between the family members who have left the Plain life and those who are still firmly rooted in their culture. Although the story does seem a little slow and drawn out in some parts, it is an engaging tale that runs strong with themes such as reconciliation, acceptance, and overcoming guilt.

    I recommend The River to all fans of good Amish fiction. Thanks to Bethany House for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    The River is a wonderful family story of love, forgiveness, understanding, and faith. God's love and salvation is a strong theme throughout the story as is the love of family. The characters were interesting and made me want to know more about their lives after the book ended. Beverly Lewis does another wonderful job of opening up the Amish world and giving us a glimpse into their world. Highly recommended! *I was given a copy of the book by the publisher in exchanged for an honest review.
