Publisher's Description

The loving hand of God is at work in even the most unsettling circumstances...

In the seemingly ordinary Amish home of Grace Byler, secrets abound. Why does her mother weep and wander deep in the night? And why does her father refuse to admit something is dreadfully wrong? Then, in one startling moment, the quiet life Grace has known is irrevocably altered, leaving her to question all she has been taught about love, family, and commitment.

"No one does Amish-based inspirationals better than Lewis." Booklist

Author Bio

Beverly Lewis, raised in Pennsylvania Amish country, is a former schoolteacher, an accomplished musician, and an award-winning author of more than eighty books, many of which have appeared on bestseller lists, including USA Today and The New York Times. Her novel The Brethren won a 2007 Christy Award for excellence in Christian fiction. Beverly and her husband, David, live in Colorado.

Publisher's Weekly

Popular novelist and Amish specialist Lewis (The Brethren) launches a new series with this volume. Two young women, Amish Grace Byler and graduate student Heather Nelson, stand as counterpoints in parallel plots involving two secrets. Grace's mother is troubled; Heather, whose mother has died of cancer, tells no one in her circle of her own diagnosis of terminal illness, which drives her to Pennsylvania Amish country in search of healing. Grace's mother makes a decision that painfully complicates the action and drives it forward. Grace, her family and friends and the Amish milieu are drawn with characteristically ample detail, right down to jars of preserves set out on the tables at many bountiful Amish meals. Lots of powerful emotions go characteristically unspoken in this reticent culture, though the reader won't miss them. By comparison, the emotional high-stakes Heather plot is less detailed and consequently less engrossing. Lewis lays out—and knots—many plot threads to pursue and resolve in subsequent installments in the series, ensuring readers' return. (Mar.)Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    This review was written for The Secret, Seasons of Grace Series #1.
    Lettie Byler, a devoted Amish wife and mother, disappears, leaving her family, especially her oldest daughter Grace confused, and even more so when her father acts like nothing's wrong. Added to the mix is terminally ill, 'Englischer' Heather Nelson, who is running away from the traditional cancer treatments that killed her mother and stole her last few months in further sickness. She ends up in Lancaster County seeking healing from a naturopath. Grace and Heather's lives and stories become intertwined in Part One of Beverly Lewis's well written Seasons of Grace series, which will leave you wanting more.

    An Interesting story of love and how a mistake from the past impacts the future. This is the first book in a series. It keeps you wanting to get to the next book. Excellent writing. It does address why Lettie left her family and what she was looking to do. You need to purchase book two to see what happens next. Highly recommended.

    Beverly Lewis has again written a heart warming book. I find that many Amish books are much the same but this one was somewhat unusual and I was compelled to keep reading. The author did a great job of showing how each member of the family dealt emotionally with Lettie's leaving so mysteriously and the community's response to this most unusual event. i highly recommend this wonderful book!

    Grace Byler lives in Lancaster County, and her life is that of a typical Amish young woman. Yes, she's a little older than most girls to be still at home, but she has her mind set on a specific young man, and she's waiting patiently for him to ask her the big question. In the meantime, there have been some strange going-ons in the household. Her mother, Lettie, has taken to weeping into the stillness of the night, and going off on walks under the light of the moon after the family is asleep. After a month of strange behavior and growing aloofness, Grace's mother disappears into the night. The entire family is left reeling from the sudden departure of their mother, and nothing can be done to get her back.

    A young Englisher named Heather Nelson comes to stay for the summer at the neighbor's home, desperately trying to put her cancer diagnosis behind her. Terrified because her adoptive mother died pf cancer, she escapes to Amish country to clear her mind and her heart. Truly convinced she can beat her cancer naturally instead of doing chemo, she meets and befriends Grace at the local health food store. What kind of plans does God have for these two brokenhearted young women? Will Lettie ever return to her family? And will Heather find the healing for her body and soul?

    While I found this story to be enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining, my only gripe was that it was somewhat repetitive. Yes, we know Heather is sick, yes, we know Lettie up and disappeared, and yes, we know it's not typical for Amish mothers to do that. We've also read multiple times that Judah is not a man of many words, and I understand the concept.

    But all trivial things aside, this series kept me up all hours, reading way into the night, wondering what would happen to everyone in the end. I was actually taken by surprise at one point, because I didn't see a plot twist coming and got completely blindsided by a major element in the story. While it wasn't the best of the best, it was a solid read, and well worth it.
