    I always hate to start one of Beverly Lewis' books because I know that it will soon be over. She is my favorite Amish writer. I have a hard time putting her books down. This book was a little different than her other books, it was not one of my favorites but it was still really good.

    What a heart warming and touching story. I found that I just wanted to keep reading. Strength, faith and community are pulled into one wonderful book.

    This is an easy, light read. One that can be completed in a weekend.

    The Guardian by Beverly Lewis is the third book in the Home to Hickory Hollow series. This is one of my favorite series by Beverly Lewis so far!

    Jodi Winfield is house sitting for her cousins. Her sister died only six months ago and ever since then she has been very angry at God. She has stopped praying and going to church and has decided to never have any kids. But her fiancé, Trent, suddenly has a desire for children, and Jodi doesn't know how to deal with that. How will their relationship ever survive all of the issues popping up between them?

    Things begin to change when Jodi finds a little girl while out jogging. She is asleep in only her undergarments and looks to have been crying. Jodi is surprised by how she immediately takes to her and lets her take her home to clean her up. Since the little girl speaks only German, will Jodi be able to find her family?

    This is a wonderful story of God's love and sovereignty amidst the Amish and the Englisch. ;-) It will delight you from beginning to end and will leave you feeling satisfied with God's perfect timing in life.

    I thought the ending was a little rushed, but overall it was a very good read.

    I was given this book free from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. :-)

    Jodi is not Amish. She is house sitting for her cousin in Lancaster. While jogging she finds a child who doesn't speak English. She takes her home, feeds, baths and puts some thrift store donations clothes on her. Jodi is engaged and he is going to spend a year in the Mission Field, overseas. Jodi is doubting her faith and then discovers her teaching job has been done away with due to budget cuts. She makes friends with the little girl's family and even becomes a teacher to the Amish school at the request of the Bishop. You will see how each one of the main characters grow in their faith and love. Friendships are formed and Sarah's mother & Jodi become "sisters of the heart". Beverly always writes heart rending stories, faith, love, and makes the characters come alive.

    An interesting contrast between English and Amish

    I found this book was an interesting look into the life of the Amish people. Jodi is not Amish but she finds the lost Amish child and befriends with the family and the community. It is through their example and friendship that she is able to come to terms with her sister's death and find her way back to her heavenly Father.

    The contrast between her modern way of life and that of her new Amish friends was a fresh perspective that I haven't read before. I usually find reading Amish fiction to be like reading historical fiction - you quickly get used to the unusual way of speaking or doing everyday things because it fits in that period or that place. This time contrasting their lives constantly with Jodi's life made it an interesting read. The author also included interesting scenarios that I had never heard of or thought of before. An Amish jogging group? :)

    I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Amish fiction. This will keep you interested and fascinated until the end.
